I have downlaoded it, burned it to DVD, changed boot priority in BIOS, but the disc in, and rebooted.
I dont get the option to boot from disc. It just boots iup as normal into XP.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance,

T:-)

Have you created a bootable disc or just burned the .ISO file to disc?

Boot your machine normally.

Insert the ISO image DVD

Install 7 using the Advanced option to ensure you install to your newly created partiton.

DOn't boot from the iso dvd.

1) Boot normally

2) Insert the burned DVD into your drive (should autorun) If not start it by double clicking it in my computer

3) IMPORTANT! let the installer start, enter your key (you have to obtain this from Microsoft via email) Choose ADVANCED install and select the newly created partiton.

Should now install

"All I did was burn the ISO to disc,"

If you just burned the .ISO to disc it won't work as you need to create a bootable disc from the .ISO. If that is the case - download "BurnCDCC" ( second one down ) and use it to create a bootable disc -
