im trying to install windows 7 64 bit, and i currently have vista 32 bit, and i can get into the bios settings and change the boot sequence to cd/dvd drive first, then floppy, then HDD, and ive tried having it set to the cd/dvd for the first 2, then HDD, but when i restart my computer it doesnt boot from the dvd

Check your optical drive connections; could be a loose cable on your motherboard sata port or drive. Or try a different sata port for your dvd.

well the optical drive works, i can run the windows 7 dvd from it, but it just wont boot from the disc. does this matter? like if i can run it normally and install windows 7 should i just do that instead of trying to boot from the disc?
