At what point? Have you installed and booted into Win7 previously or are you talking about booting from the installation disc to install it the first time?

Why are you asking me to listen carefully??

You do not mention in your first post anything about what did or did not work. I did not think my questions were in anyway unreasonable, I was trying to narrow down exactly what to problem and therefore the cause maybe.
Now if you do not mind answering another question, I will of cause listen to your reply but you need to provide details.

1) Do you have one drive that plays dvds/rom/cd or multiple drives?

This is because you can select a boot order preference, if more than one drive you may be able to put DVD to the top.

2) What is your current OS?

This is because you may be able to install from inside it, unless you do not want a dual boot or upgrade and want a clean install.

3) Does your DVD drive work normally when running your OS?

If not then this may be the fault and you can then use an external drive.

I have absolutely no idea what your computer problem might be. Like ilesal has said, you have not yet provided enough detail to approach a solution.

As to the above quote... I have no pull around here (see my post count for a clue as to why ) but may I humbly suggest that many times full understanding gets lost in translation. In a forum, posts tend to be short, many times too short, and content is not completely conveyed. If English is not one's first language, the problem is increased. Fuller, more complete, understanding can be enhanced if something approaching full sentences are used rather than short phrases.

Finally, I post this rather than PM because I am not pointing this posting at you but at all posters. I see it very often that meaning and content are not conveyed due to posters making assumptions.

So, everyone take a deep breath and start typing

@Nikhil Kharat - If you can provide more detail about what it is you are attempting to do when you don't see the boot screen - that will help others in providing you a solution. For example, it would seem, from your system specifications, that this is at some point after the install of build 7229. But, it might be while you are attempting to install a different build. In addition, if this is trying to get your currently installed build to boot, is this a clean install, dual boot, upgrade install, or something else? These sorts of details help.

Sorry for Post No.3Earlier I was running two OS......Win XP and Win RC 7201(both 32 bit) then i tried to install(Upgrade) Win RC x64 7229 but when i clicked the setup button it says that i cannot upgrade from 32 bit to 64 which was obviousI tried booting from DVD by burning the files extracted from the ISO of 7229,burning was OK but later when i restarted the pc the DVD didn't boot i don't know whyMy current problem is not about the Screen but yes i cannot boot from the 7229 Setup DVDI have few questions :1. How burning is done?2. Should i burn the ISO Image or the files extracted from ISO?Windows RC 7201 x32 was running verry smoothly i never had problem with that but now i want to check the x64 bit of RC 7229.....How can i do that?

That's your problem right there, don't extract the files, burn the ISO as an image. And yes Windows 7 has the ability built-in, just right click on the ISO file and select "Windows Disk Image Burner".

I agree with stormy13 - the ISO is an image file. Win7 will burn that directly to a DVD, making that DVD a bootable source. From there, the installation is very straight forward and uncomplicated - just like with 7201.

If your ISO file is on your XP partition and not visible from the Win7, then you will need to boot into XP and, using a DVD burning software, burn the ISO image directly to the DVD - just like always.
