soory for my bad english
Have your tried upgrading your bios? it might be set not to recognize that format - name of windows.
I found one ISP that failed to allow Win 7 access to internet, I also found that same ISP failed to allow Windows SE-ME acess. Check your manufacture to see if the bios will accept Win7.

Might be worth visiting the manufacturer of your dvd drive - see if they have a firmware/driver update on the site.

check an see who makes your BIOS. then use google to
how to flash (American Megatrends Inc) bios. or whom ever makes your Bios.
really is not that hard. read and follow instructions. easy

my instructions for flash my bios:
Step1: download the newer version of your bios.
Step2: Please right click AFUWIN.exe
Step3: Click "Run as administrator".

If you encounter problems while updating the new BIOS, DO NOT turn off your system since this corrupt BIOS might cause your system failed to boot up. Just repeat the process, and if the problem still persists, update the original BIOS file. If the Flash Memory Writer utility was not able to successfully update a complete BIOS file, your system may not be able to boot up. If this happens, your system will need service.

Yes, instruction seem to be rather 100%.
If you do not have a floppy you can change that to USB -flash drive, just make sure you have boot to USB set, I have my BOOT order set the following:
1. USB
2. Floppy
3. DVD drive
4. Sata HD
all you need to do then is shut down. insert USB with files then start.
also you will have the option when you flash bios to save the old bios.
I do recommend you save. you can save simular to:

˝I do recommend you save. you can save simular to:5-12-bios.rom˝
