problems installing

I burned the ISO file to a blank DVD disk, and I restart my computer but it goes back to vista, and doesn't prompt the 7 installation screen.. .

Have you changed the Bios setting so it boots from the DVD first?

When you restart hit del when prompted to enter the Bios, I have just found a tutorial on you tube that should explain it well for you.

I did that but when it tries to boot from CD it skips it like there is nothing there.

When you burned the ISO to the DVD did you actually use a program like PowerISO to burn it to the DVD or did you just save the ISO to the DVD?

Good so far! LOVE it, it's way faster (IE Opening folders)..

Although some problems trying to bring back my old files from windows.old..

I lost all my firefox bookmarks, not sure how to bring them back (I have firefox on a disk that I backed up prior to Windows 7)..

But thats no big deal. Sometimes its good to start over.
