I switched on the dud laptop.
Put the DVD in.
Used the power button to switch it off.
Used the power button to switch it on. Hear the disk drive turning and sadly saw the same recovery screen .still nothing moving.
Was I supposed to do something else?
Thanks

[1] The DVD you used to burn the ISO onto was a DVD-R wasn't it?
[2] Take the power lead out, take the battery out, press the power button for 10 seconds, plug the power lead back in [leave the battery out] and switch on!

Hi rick33, why don't you just create a bootable USB ISO?
