Welcome to the Forum.

It should work. Put your disk in and restart your computer. You might want to check your bios and make sure it is set to boot from CD/DVD rom.

I believe he was talking about the new Win 7 installation disk. Pop the Win 7 disk in and boot to the disk then start the installation.
