Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 dvd doesn't boot up -Not boot order issue

Windows 7 x64 dvd doesn't boot up -Not boot order issue

Hello,

I recently purchased a copy of x64 Windows 7 Business. I downloaded it from the Online store DigitalRiver as part of the students deal.

Here is my system information:
Current operating system: Windows Vista x32 Business
Processor: Intel Quad Core 2 Q6600 2.4 GHz
Memory: 4GB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz
Motherboard: Intel 975XBX2 KR Socket 775
BIOS version: 2838 (Latest)

I burned the x64 Windows 7 installation files onto a DVD. I am aware that it is not going to run from my current OS since it is x32.

My Boot order is the following: DVD/CD ROM -> HDD

I tried to boot with the x64 Windows 7 DVD but it simply didn't. So I decided to format my computer using the x32 Vista DVD.

After the format, I tried to boot with the x64 Windows 7 DVD and it failed again.

So I re-installed x32 Vista and I still cannot boot with the x64 Windows 7 DVD.

Any help will be much appreciated.

This is necessary because an .iso image file needs to be burned to DVD to boot, while you only burned files.

Choosing which OS to boot by changing BIOS boot order
I am choosing which OS to boot by changing the boot order in my BIOS. To me, this seems clean and simple. I built 32 bit XP on one disk, then removed that disk from my system, installed a different disk, and built 64 bit W7. When both disks are installed, I change the boot order to select the OS...
