    Windows 7 Disc

    Has anyone had one of these fail?
    I had a perfectly good disc but somewhere along the line it went walkies and I ordered a new one.
    But it doesnt work - I cannot get a machine to boot from it. I have tried it in 4 machines now.
    Civica told me to email them and they would sort it out but that was last week.
    The problem???
    I have two laptops for SMT that I HAVE to have finished by next Friday, and that means I have very little time to get it sorted.
    And if I don't I am not sure what will happen!

    Any advice???

    We had something like this at school, it was something to do with the AHCI/IDE HDD setting in the BIOS. Switched it round at it worked OK. Not sure if that'll help...

    Try making a copy of it to another DVD and use that instead If it won't copy it is a good indication the original disc is goosed.
