    Windows 7 installation disk does not boot up.

    Trying to install windows 7 onto a FS esprimo mobile V6555 laptop but it does not boot from disk. Managed to install XP professional so cd\dvd is working ok. Windows 7 disk is recognised but no files or autorun shown. Boots on all other pcs. Any ideas ?

    Try using a linux boot disk to blat the hard disk, the disk should autoboot instead of giving the "Press a key to boot from cd...." message if no bootable partitions exist, maybe this will get round the issue?

    @Roughley0:

    You may need to change the bios settings to boot from the CD/DVD drive directly as auto run function may be turned off.
