    Hello friend ,

    If you are finding trouble in booting window from dvd then you can boot it from pen drive by creating the pendrive boot-able .

    This process of booting is faster and easier.

    Steps to creating pen drive boot-able are as follows :

    1. click on start menu and then click on run :

    2. In run box type cmd and press enter :

    boot.jpg

    3. Now in command prompt follow the steps :

    - DISK PART
    - LIST DISK
    - SELECT DISK 1
    - CLEAN
    - CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    - SELECT PARTITION 1
    - ACTIVE
    - FORMAT FS=FAT32
    - ASSIGN
    - EXIT

    Now you pen drive is a boot-able disk and copy the windows files and boot it to your computer.


    good luck....!!

    Hey friend,
    If your system is not directly booting form the DVD as you want , then follow these steps:-


    -First restart your laptop and press del key at the startup to enter into the bios setup.
    -once you enter into BIOS setup GO TO PRIMARY boot device selection(boot device priority) option.
    -here Set primary boot device as your DVD rom.
    -save and exit.

    NOw restart your system , your system automatically run the setup from the disk available in your DVD rom.

    hello,
    your problem which you facing right now might have come from a number of corners-
    1.is your windows an authentic copy? Do you have valid license number of it(authentication code)?
    2.is your optical drive okay?
    3.is the optical disc you are using to install windows okay?
    4.is your hdd properly formatted and partitioned?

    Take necessary steps to correct if any of the above is found faulty and try to install which will be succesful i hope.

    Thank you

    Dear Guest,

    * First of all restart your laptop and quickly press tab key.

    * Then you get a page where there is an option for BOOT sequence.

    * Modify the sequence and select DVD as first option.

    * Then restart again.

    * Now your problem has been resolved and you can boot your laptop by DVD.

    Re: Unable to boot from DVD to run the setup for Windows 7 OS

    hi hello friend........If the Driver is not detecting the boot......there are two problems

    ONE is Disc ( if the disc is corrupted then the Driver will not detect the boot)

    and other one is your Drive ( if there is any problem in the Driver then also it will not detect)......But confirm....after these steps


    first insert the Disc in to the ROM.....and restart your pc

    then Press Delete key or F2 key from your keyboard ....it Depends on the pc

    then in the configuration window choose the BOOT option

    in that choose boot priority option and select Boot option1 as CD/DVD rom

    then press F10 to save and select ok to restart

    then also the same problem arises and again restart and press F8

    And select the Boot from the CD/DVD

    then also the same problem arises.............then check you DVD or Drive ......................ALL THE BEST
