Windows 7 help

Hi, got a boot up problem, I try to boot up and it gets stuck saying disc read error occurred. Then keeps telling me to ctrl alt del to restart. My hdd is detected in bios, I try load up windows 7 disc and it gets stuck at the blue screen! Lol I'm so stuck, any advice?



You Using the right disk??? eg32bit or 64bit disk

Have you got a cd left in the drive? USB memory device connected (dont forget things like memory card readers in printers)

Yeah right disc 32 bit, nothing is plugged in except mouse and keyboard! I can't even load up
any os


Maybe it can't support the install are you upgrading from xp ? Run the compatibility test

A duff copy of the disc?

Or a dodgy optical drive?
