Windows 7: I reinstalled Windows 7 from the DVD, having problems

12 May 2015   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

That install DVD is fine if that`s all you have, but you have to boot from it, you can`t run it from within windows, there should be no reason you can`t bring up the boot menu to boot from the optical drive with the disc inside.

Either that or change the boot order in the bios to boot from the dvd drive 1st and the hard drive/ssd 2nd.

Don`t forget to save changes and exit.

When you reboot, you have to see the words "Press any key to boot from dvd/cd" when you see that, hit any key on the keyboard to start the install process.
