you can start installing by putting the dvd in the tray and booting from it. when the setup screen comes up click install. follow directions as you go along.

good luck mate

If it wont boot from the disk, check the BIOS and make sure the first boot device is CD Drive, most new computers don't have CD drive set as first boot device.

Good luck!
