When you say it wont boot, how far does it get ? Do you know how to get into the Bios ? its usually by tapping delete or F8 while the PC is booting. Read this: it will be easier than me typing it all out http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ht/accessbi... Once you are in the bios set the primary/first boot device to be the optical drive. Save and exit the Bios, take your time its all in there, which buttons to press etc. Next you need to insert the disc in the PC, leave the disc in and restart it and it will start a fresh install process. Hope that's what you wanted to know. Mactronix m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
