I hope that copy of Windows installation disc you "DL" from school is OK. Otherwise you could be wasting time, no way of testing "that disc".

the cd is fine as i was able to boot from the cd on my friends comp(but didnt install on his, just testing it). I guess i wasnt clear enough on my op but when i go into the bios and have it boot from the cd drive i get that black screen that should say press any key to boot from cd (or whatever) but the screen only blinks that white underscore it doesnt give me the prompt to press any key. That screen lasts for about 10-20 seconds just blank like that then loads xp like it normally does. I also dont have a repair disc

Boot from Disc. When it says "Press and key to boot from CD or DVD"

Press any KEY!

Then you should get the screen below.

Is the same computer you already installed Windows 7 with the same disc.

During the boot up process try tapping the F10 key to see if you get a Boot Menu screen

Burn the ISO image below with ImgBurn at 4x speed. Boot from CD and see if you can get to this main screen.
