You don't want it to "boot from disc". You want it to "boot from DVD/CD drive". The DVD/CD drive may have a slightly different name in the BIOS but you should be able to determine that the DVD/CD drive boots FIRST in the order. "Boot from disc" is usually referring to booting from the hard drive.. On some computers, I've had to move the hard drive boot to the LAST of all the ordered items, making the DVD/CD drive First, second, then making the hard drive last.. It forces the system to look for the DVD/CD drive more than once.
Just confirming you have the settings correct..
Hope this helps.
Right, I've been running windows 7 for about a year and half so I want to re-install just to keep my computer running fresh..........
I've changed the boot menu to boot from disk in my BIOS, then I get the message, "press any key to boot from disk" next windows starts loading files, and then it takes my to a pale blue windowed themed screen with no icons and just a huge mouse arrow which I can move........
How can I get to screen that will ask my if I want to install windows?
What am I doing wrong?
This is a genuine windows DVD.
