I have used this disc for my desktop, it works perfectly.
Maybe my dvd drive in my laptop is bad? I should run some tests to see how well it is reading cds/dvds.
I can get into boot menu, but do not have a shown option of booting from CD.
Thanks for all of your suggestions, I really didn't plan on this being difficult at all (have done clean install before)
update: I loaded an audio cd in. It shows up on the computer (can see it) but when I double-click to open it says
Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
(I am using admin account).
So this must be an issue with the drive?
Edit: nevermind, Itunes read the cd no problem.
