    Windows 7 x64 dvd doesn't boot up -Not boot order issue


    Hello,

    I recently purchased a copy of x64 Windows 7 Business. I downloaded it from the Online store DigitalRiver as part of the students deal.

    Here is my system information:
    Current operating system: Windows Vista x32 Business
    Processor: Intel Quad Core 2 Q6600 2.4 GHz
    Memory: 4GB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz
    Motherboard: Intel 975XBX2 KR Socket 775
    BIOS version: 2838 (Latest)

    I burned the x64 Windows 7 installation files onto a DVD. I am aware that it is not going to run from my current OS since it is x32.

    My Boot order is the following: DVD/CD ROM -> HDD

    I tried to boot with the x64 Windows 7 DVD but it simply didn't. So I decided to format my computer using the x32 Vista DVD.

    After the format, I tried to boot with the x64 Windows 7 DVD and it failed again.

    So I re-installed x32 Vista and I still cannot boot with the x64 Windows 7 DVD.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    This is necessary because an .iso image file needs to be burned to DVD to boot, while you only burned files.
