Windows 7 (XP, by Virtualization)
Try a USB flash drive (w / W7 on it) or a Live OS CD/DVD!


To rule out the CD / DVD drive being faulty you could attempt to boot from a USB stick. In order to Boot from a USB stick you must first enter the BIOS and make the first boot device the USB stick (before entering the BIOS be sure to have the USB stick inserted - otherwise the BIOS may not present it as a boot option).

Here is a link describing how to make a bootable Windows 7 USB stick -

Of course before you go to the lengths above you could try running a Live OS, such as Ubuntu.

Kind Regards,
