I don't know if the title is misleading but i am having problems with Windows 7 Disk.
I am currently using Windows XP and i want to install Windows 7. So, i downloaded windows 7 from Microsoft site and it was in .iso format. I downloaded it and burned it on a dvd. I have burned the disk properly. As i am on desktop in Windows XP, and i put the DVD in the CD drive, autorun starts setup.exe from the Win 7 disk and i get a screen to install Win 7. When i start to install, it does not allow me to format my C drive, as i have less space and it asks to boot the disk from restart.
So, i restarted my comp, and presses F8 and the boot selection menu popped up. I selected the CD Drive so that it can boot from the disk. But, then i don't get any message such as "Please click any button to boot from the disk". It directly loads windows xp and i cannot install win 7.
I tried it twice and both the times it loads XP, and does not boot from the disk.
Please advice what should i do.
