How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube

Where did you get the Win7 DVD? Did you burn it yourself?

Are you getting a prompt to "Press any key to boot disk?" Try triggering the DVD to boot by tapping the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen at boot? Does it prompt you now? If there is no prompt then the disk is not bootable.

Make sure the DVD is clean and unscratched. If you burned it then burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed using latest official installer ISO from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If that fails try writing the latest ISO to flash stick, booting it using Boot Menu F-key under USB, Removable or HD's. Set HDD first to boot in BIOS setup.

No I am not getting a prompt to boot. I did burn the cd but not at 4x. Is it important to burn the cd at the slowest speed?

Yes burn the official ISO for your licensed version to disk using the tool from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If that fails burn with ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Just to be sure on this, are you putting the DVD in your drive, shutting down the PC and then rebooting with the DVD in the drive?
