Issue installing windows on an old laptop

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I am having an issue installing windows on an old Compaq Evo N610. It has a DVD drive, but it won't boot from a Windows XP DVD. It used to boot fine off it the Windows XP CD I had, but it got lost and all I have are DVD's. Is there any difference or is my ISO messed up? It has all of the necessary files to be a bootable ISO, it just doesn't work.
