Windows 7: Cannot boot windows seven from DVD?

15 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 ultimate x32
Cannot boot windows seven from DVD?

I have a DVD player, and i am pretty sure it is working fine.
I tried to boot windows 7 to DVD and then boot the pc from it but it gave me a error
Cannot boot from, code 5
It was written at the minimal possible speed i.e 4, imgburn verifier found no problems.

I tried to write ultimate boot cd to dvd and it wrote just fine, but when i tried to go into smart boot of UBCD and delected cd-rom drive it said error 0x01.(Yes i did replace the dvds)

I dont get what went wrong, other things boot fine but the setup doesnt? I used the same iso file on the same pack of dvds on i think the same dvd reader on my old pc and it booted fine(other than a graphics card sided graphic problem).

Is there a way to solve this?I need to boot to the disk so i can reinstall windows seven on drive C
