Nero is inferior for working with images, which is why we suggested extracting and burning the ISO using ImgBurn at 4x speed. But this is only based on what's worked for several hundred others.

If it fails after extracting image with ImgBurn and slow burning another, then try flash stick. If both fail find another ISO by borrowing a DVD from friend to extract ISO or downloading one which you confirm is intact with nothing added.

If you will tell us where you bought Win7, we can possibly help you replace it.

A thought...

As greg asked in an earlier post... where did you acquire the original disc?
  1. Did it come with the PC?
  2. Did you buy it at a retail store?
  3. Did you buy it online and download it?
  4. Did you download a torrent?
We need to know to provide you with excellent help...

Also, if you have a friend who has a valid Win7 DVD you can use his/hers to install Win7 on your PC... just use your own CD Key

It sounds like the BIOS might not be set to legacy USB, and the keyboard inputs aren't being recognized during the process. If he's getting the prompt, then it is booting from the disc, it just isn't picking up the keystrokes.

Those days are long gone...and that complicates the process. Few people are installing from a DVD these days anyway, so the USB method solves all the issues that your suggestion used to circumvent.
