You can make the CD as the first boot device by going into the BIOS configuration and changing the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second boot device.
After installing Windows, you can change the device boot up back to the hard disk but it is not necessary.

SOURCE: i my laptop cant boot windows 7 and xp together !

Hi,
Since you have installed XP after installing windows 7 & vista, you have erased the boot manager of vista. To get it back, just download & install Vista Boot Pro from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/VistaBootPRO.shtml

Can't boot from CD


Make sure you have a bootable windows 7 dvd. You most likely have just the upgrade version or (a poorly pirated one.) Try installing the 64 version from the windows and see how it goes from there

I am unable to install windows XP. is it possible to install windows XP along with the Windows 7 that is already installed........ suggest me asap


If you want to have both windows 7 and windows xp installed on your computer, it is advisable that you first install windows xp. You should allways install the oldest windows version first. To install windows XP on your computer you need the installation cd. Boot your computer with the Windows XP installation cd, maybe you have to enter bios to set cd to boot first. Let me now if you need more information.

I tried to install windows 7 on my HP Pavillion DV9, but it's not booting from CD-ROM, i tried using a USB CD-ROM, but it's still not booting. pls I need assistance.


Hi,

Try to check if the windows 7 disc that you are using is not just an upgrade disc. Make sure that it is a bootable disc. Try to use other bootable disc to test. Also make sure that the boot device priority is set CD/DVD drive.

Hope this helps.
