It's easy. First make sure the laptop is set to boot from CD drive. If it doesn't ell you how to change the boot sequence on start up then you will have to enter the BIOS on boot (normally either F2 or the delete key)

Change to CD drive as first boot device.

Insert OS disc and press any key to boot from CD.

Hey please help me,does home choice laptops support windows 7 because my friends formated the hardrive please help me i realy dont know what to do,i tried installing windows 7 starter but it does&

Unless your laptop is very old, it should support Windows 7.
Did you format the disk as FAT32 or NTFS ? either of these two will do. Did Win 7 actually install correctly ? or did the install fail ?
You sure the Win 7 disk is legit ?

HAVE A CD WINDOWS 95, 98, 2000, NT 32bit application trying to install but I get a error message - component CSTEXT32.OCX or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered - a file is missing or invalid

The only time I usually see this is on copied CD's. Windows sets those in a special place that most copy software doesn't look as a protection against piracy. I am not saying you have bootleg disk but that is the only time I have seen that. If those are original CD/DVD's and you don't need the information on the HD saved, Try partitioning and them formatting the HD again then try an install. For Win 95 and 98 format to Dos, for 2000 and NT you can format to the more efficient and better NTSF format.
