I just purchased a OEM version of WIN7 to put on my build. I am currently running XP on the system, so I know I have to do a clean install. however I can't get the install disk to boot. I have set it in the BIOS to boot from the disk but it keeps going to XP. Will I need to get a new HD?
Augusto, you were hitting any key at the prompt when the PC was booting up?
If the DVD drive light came on during the boot process and an audible sound was coming from the drive, it is possible that you missed the option "Hit any key to boot from CD/DVD" and the boot process reverted to booting from the HDD.
Apologies if you were doing this, just trying to cover all bases.
