Uninstalling Ubuntu entirely to replace with Windows 7 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
If you're seeing the boot screen (with Ubuntu, etc.) come up, you are not booting from the DVD.

What laptop do you have?

I cannot get into the Windows 7 installation screen, I just get the screen I'm talking about in my original post. And yes I have a proper installation disc (to other poster).

You still are not booting from the DVD drive if you can not get to the install screen. Disable all other boot items in the BIOS, only have the DVD drive enabled and set to the first boot priority.
