Have you tried the disk on another computer to test it?
Try going into bios and change the boot priority to the DVD rom.

If not, you could always download a Windows ISO from another place and use the CD-key from the newegg one wink.gif

Yeah i tried the cd on my parents year 2000 gateway and it wants to boot up on that so i dont kno whats wrong. Changed my cd rom boot priority and still no luck. had heard from a friend about changin the jumper around to make it a master drive instead of a slave drive. How does the whole ISO thing work? I'm not familiar with it and am a noob lol.
