Change your bios to have the cd/dvd rom to first boot. Insert the cd, it will autostart and format, and install.
After you activate. go to windows update and install the rest.
Let me know how this works for you...

How do I get Windows 7 to work


I have been a dedicated XP user but recently loaded Windows 7 for the first time. I can't claim it was a huge success at first but it did function albeit slowly. The problem was the almost 300 updates it was downloading and installing via wireless even though the automatic updates was switched off. A few days later when updating had completed the laptop became itself again. I find it very similar to XP.

If you can't get Windows 7 to work you either have a hardware or a software problem. Formatting the hard drive and reloading is the best way out of a bad software problem.

My Battlefield 1942 running on Windows 7 has suddenly quit booting up. Uninstalled it and re-installed it. Same problem. It worked fine until now


My advice isn't expert...

I suggest you scan for viruses and malware first. If nothing is found it could either be a software conflict or the programme has cannibalised parts of windows and/or replaced them with none-windows versions and made it unstable.

You could try System Restore but that has never worked for me. I usually end up formatting the drive and reloading everything.

Putting the system disc in the drive and booting from the disc I think offers a repair solution and it might be worth trying that.

I have used XP for years and I now have a laptop with a respectable specification running Windows 7. I find it slow and temperamental by comparison even though I have reloaded it twice.
The supplied serial doesn't work even though it is an official disc and I sometimes think Microsoft is somehow attacking my computer...

Why not try Linux for gaming?

Format the drive with win XP or use a third-party HDD software like partition magic.

keep in mind that the choice of a correct file system is very important, "NTFS support volumes up to 16EB" while FAT12 is limited to 32 MB.

Keep me posted!
