Welcome to Windows 7 Support forums,
Fantaji, reboot and while system runs its post touch your F-8 key to bring up boot priority menu, select DVD to boot first.

Where did you get Windows 7? Did you burn the DVD yourself?

I don't think that would matter. I have done this with other operating systems and it works fine.

I only asked because the first thing we need to eliminate is ISO, then burn.

Install ImgBurn, select "Verify Disk" and then load ISO using file icon.

Confirm "bootable" in text, as given below:

Then insert DVD and click Disk button to verify the DVD.

If the DVD is bad, insert another and Burn Image to Disk at 4x speed with Verify.

warning!
If you are a gamer, and as your name indicates xbox, you may be subject to removal from the xbox community if you use and disabling of certain equipment if you modify/bootleg software and equipment.

hello, I'm dealing with the exact same problem that this other guy was having

I do know how the bios settings work and all but there is one problem...

for some odd reason, the option to load the bios settings won't even appear (not even the HP logo will show up at the startup)

it'll just have " _ " blinking for a bit as if it was reading a cd (installation) but won't boot it up

help?
