Install Action Pack Windows 7 when DVD does not boot computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I install the Action Pack Windows 7 file, SW_DVD5_Win_Pro_7SP1_32BIT_English_2_X17-59183, when the 2-sided DVD does not boot the computer that I need to do the install on? Latest steps:

    . Downloaded, as recommended yesterday, again the file from the download site

    . Copied the file from my download file using my Sony drive model DRX-840U using the Nero 11 Express to the 2-sided DVD

    . Attached the Sony drive to the Dell Latitude 600 laptop

    . Started the Dell laptop

    . F2 to enter setup to confirm the external DVD drive was first on the boot drive sequences

    . The boot went directly into the normal Windows XP Professional on the computer and did not boot from the external DVD Windows 7 install

    Now what? How can I get the install done when the DVD does not boot the computer?
