My computer wont install windows when I put the windows 7 disc in. I will put it in then it will tell me to press any key to continue and I press a key and then it will spin the disc for a few seconds then tell me to put in media again and press a key. I just cant figure out how to install windows on my ASRock 970 Extreme 3
it sounds like your computer is having trouble reading that disc. Make sure it doesn't have any scratches. if you burned the disc, try another blank media and burn it at a slow 2X speed. It is also possible that it could be the data cable between the optical drive and system board, or the optical drive itself.
I burned the disc of DreamSpark for college. I put the motherboard driver CD in there and it will show all this text and just restart. There are no scratches on the windows 7 disc, for some reason the computer just wont read it. If you could add me on skype that would be great so I can show you the problem or something like that.

look at the windows 7 cd..if it says upgrade it wont boot. it has to be full version retail or oem. if you have a 4g usb stick you can use the microsoft usb tool and make a bootable usb windows install.
