Windows 7 not picked up in boot menu

#1
hey
So i wanted to install a clean copy of windows 7 so i changed my boot priority and tried to load from my dvd drive but the "Press any key to boot from cd" line does not come it just skips it. My vista cd works fine but windows 7 doesn't.
Anyway to solve this?

(i cant do clean copy while in vista)

Disable all other boot options. You may have to unplug the power to your hard drive to verify your disk will boot in the dvd.

Just tried that, All it asks me to do is select a device to boot from or insert cd to boot from and press any key, My cd is in and when i press it "enter" the message just repeats

Will it read ANY cd? If you burned this one from an ISO yourself you may need to burn it again at 4x or slower.

Get into the BIOS and make sure your DVD-ROM is listed as the first boot device.

I'd say bad DVD.

Try re-burning the ISO at it's slowest speed and use a good quality name-brand DVD. I use Imgburn, you cab download it here:
The Official ImgBurn Website

I get this on some older cd/dvd roms when installing if I use +media or Rewritables , I suggest you try burn to another dvd type ;)
