trying to boot a Centos DVD(dvd-r) in a refurbished Acer desktop, however the dvd will not boot. I can see the contents in Explorer. This is a Windows 7 premium box. Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure you are burning the .ISO file as an image, not as a file. Use e.g. ImgBurn for that, or built-in Windows 7 "Burn to disk" when you right-click on an .ISO file.

Also - make sure your DVD drive can boot, e.g. try with original Windows DVD.
