IT should be an iso file right. Get imgburn it's free and burns iso's properly. You just click Write image file to disk and browse to the folder containing the iso.

Or in Nero burning you have to select Burn Image from the Recorder menu. If you just burn the iso to a disk thats all you will get.

When you burn an iso properly it extracts all the files in the iso as it burns it, including any boot info it needs to be bootable.

Once it is done close program. Restart and insert new operating system load and follow on screen instructions. you are done.

Reformate the harddrive wipe clean

Formatting will not wipe the hard disk clean completely. If you do not intend to install Windows back on the hard disk then use this program -

Hi guys i am facing problem while trying to install or even boot from CD or USB, my problem it's when i press any key to boot from CD i just get blank screen and i thing the laptop is stuck. Please...

Ok so I'm guessing it's detecting it's a bootable CD since it is prompting you to "press any key to boot from CD" right? If it goes to a blank screen after that and doesn't go any further, I would think it's 1 of 3 things.

1, the CD you are using is bad or damaged. Try a different bootable CD or try to burn a copy of that one and try with the new copy.

2, Could be a memory issue. If you have multiple sticks of RAM in your computer, try removing 1, testing, then the other (while replacing the first one you removed).

3, Your Hard drive could be corrupt or damaged. I would first try wiping it clean with a program like Darik's boot and nuke ( THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA ON THE HARD DRIVE. Then try to re-install again.

Good luck!

How can i delete every thing from my laptop acer extensa 5630ez ?

Everything? Do you want it to be working when you're done?
Here is one way....
Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.
Download this file...

You will need to write a CD using this ISO file. If you have the software to do this, just double click the file and the software should start up. If the computer says it does not know how to use it, then you'll need some free burning software.
Boot on the CD and let it work. Follow prompts.
