Welcome to SF!

What happens when you try to boot? Try manually booting from the DVD, through use of the popup boot menu. Usually F11 or F12 during the POST.

Are you trying to install the 64 or 32 bit Windows 7? If you are trying to install the 32 bit version, you can boot up to XP, then run the setup.exe file found on the install disc.

For my ASUS comp I press the Esc Key where a pop up menu comes up where I select to boot from CD/DVD. This is all before I boot into Windows.

Make sure you setup your burn to make the iso bin bootable from the DVD... GL

Where did your windows 7 come from and what format was it when you burned it to the dvd?

the dvd is bootable because there is a boot directory in the installtion folder also it opens up when I insert it while I'm at windows.
I'm trying to install 64 bit version of windows 7 ultimate so I can't upgrade from my xp 32 bit

Extract the win7 dvd's contents to a folder on a partition on which you are NOT going to install win7. You can simply copy in windows explorer by browsing the dvd.

Go to the folder where you extracted the dvd's contents and run Setup.exe.

After install is complete, delete windows.old (This is the windows folder of your xp install which is no longer needed).
