Windows 7: Unable to boot from disc

I'm guessing the UEFI is what your referring to. How do I delete it? Do I have to wipe the hard drive? A while back you said it may be a bad burn.

UEFI is "built" into the motherboard. You don't delete it, you temporarily bypass it to allow booting from the external media you're trying to use.

Google is your friend.

You do have the manual for your motherboard? Yes? If no, then go the manufacturers website and fetch the manual.

Quick installation guide. That's all that was in the box.

A suggestion is that you use SPECCY (link in my signature) so that you can fill in the model info for your computer in your System Specs.

Yes, I know that but it's not the best option, as firstly this setup isn't for me, its for someone who doesn't understand vitalizing so decided it would be easier to install an OS he is familiar with. Secondly, the program that the person wants to run is requires a lot of resources, so running two OS's simultaneously will slow it down. Basically, vitalizing is out of the question.

I've found the manual

http://europe.asrock.com/downloadsit...l/A55M-HVS.pdf

It's XP 64bit (page 31) that im trying to install, incase you don't know.

And the PC listed in this accounts specs, isn't the one I'm trying to do this on.

suggest that while we are discussing this different computer, that you change the system specs to reflect the computer under discussion.
