Why can't my vista HP boot windows 7 from a dell OEM disk? I have tried everything I can find on the web. Trying to do a clean install and it is just not coming together. I have already change my BIOS to boot from CD/DVD and still nothing. Please help and advise. Thanks.

    Because it is a Dell disk, trying to install on an HP?

    Where did you get this disk? eBay?
  2. USAFRet is right. An OEM Dell disk will not install on an HP computer. The Dell OEM disk is for a Dell computer only and only for specific Dell computers. Other than the licensing issue there would be the issue of drivers that wouldn't work for the HP.
