1. The keyboard indeed. What you say makes sense, but still I'd try a standard PS/2-keyboard.
2. The DVD isn't bootable. Easy to check in another PC.
3. The DVD-drive is defective. Then it needs to be replaced.
I'm trying to get my PC to boot from the DVD with a full install DVD of Windows 7 in it. During a boot up when the message comes up and says "Hit any key to boot from DVD..." it continues on to boot from the hard drive no matter what key I hit.
I went into SETUP using the Delete key when my PC was starting and the CD-ROM/DVD was already set as the primary boot drive. I disabled the hard drive as the secondary so there was no secondary listed.
I tried again and again it booted to the hard drive. At first I thought that since I"m using a wireless keyboard that maybe the driver isn't loaded at the time it asks me to hit a key but if that were true, I wouldn't have been able to enter SETUP with the Delete key.
Can anyone help me boot from the DVD so that I can do a format and clean install of the Windows 7 DVD?
