I am trying to do a system wipe and install Windows 7. Trying to boot my Toshiba satellite laptop using the CD. I have pressed F12/F8/F2 to try to get to the boot option menu, but all I get is a red menu with white writing that doesn't give me the boot from CD/DVD ect options.

If you can't get to the restore partition via f8, a few Toshiba's use 0 (That's zero) instead. Turn the computer off. Turn it on, and hold 0 down.
