Can't boot from Vista 64bit or 32bit Install CD
 
I can't get my computer to boot from ether the 64bit or 32bit Vista Install cd. I change my boot to the DVDROM drive.. and everytime it goes to boot from the DVD I just get this blinking curser in the top left corner of my screen. I let it sit for a good 30 mins and nothing happened.

Any idea what is going on here?!

most likelly you are using upgrade version of install disc, those can't be booted from.

there is a tutorial on the web how to convert the upgrade disc to normal boot-able version.

Did you burn the CD or is it from MS?

I had to burn W7 3 times before it came out right. I eventually had to use BurnIMG (I think this was it) instead of Nero.

A firmware update in my DVDROM fixed some read issues.
