Windows 7: Win7 install won't allow Y key @ "Boot from CD/DVD?" but C+A+D reboots

Not sure why you`re having this problem, as a properly prepared install dvd and with the boot options set to

1) DVD drive
2) Hard drive

You will always get "Press any key to boot from DVD"

And the answer to your last question is.......

Use the one time boot menu key to bring up the boot menu, choose the dvd drive....

You will then see the words "Press any key to boot from dvd"

If you don`t then your installer is bad.
