New Partition ok. ISO Burn ok, Boot from DVD


Proclaimer

is set in BIOS and I know how to use it. So when I put my Windows 7 disc into the drive and select boot from DVD (F11) it says 'press any key to boot from DVD' then sails on past that to Windows XP Boot.

So what could I have missed? Is there a boot sector written to the Windows 7 DVD during the ISO burn?

Or something else I have missed like a separate boot disc?

I downloaded the ISO direct from Microsoft and it came from one of their partners
I burned the ISO to DVD using Roxio software
All ok so far
I booted up with new DVD and although I was slow to press to start the install, on the second go I quickly set the install in motion
It did seem to take a long time at first
but I resisted the temptation to press a key and just waited til it finished
i works OK
I might suggest you get another copy of the ISO and redo the DVD and use the new one to install with
Hope that clarifies the position

now my Microsoft USB Keyboard will not work at the Boot Selection Screen so I can't choose which OS to boot.

No worries, I have put my PS2 keyboard in and that works.

Dual boot: Windows 7 and xp Pro. Does anyone know of issues with Acronis? I have this installed, but notice from some post's here that it's caused a few file corruption issues....Don't want to do a clean install, and don't want to ditch TI either.

but I have not installed/enabled the Acronis Start Manager as I thought this was preventing the Windows 7 Beta from Booting at start-up.
