This seems to be a very weird problem. I am at my wits end trying to solve it.
Basically, I have a Dell Studio laptop. My DVD drive reads every CD/DVD fine except for the Windows OS installation CD. I have tried putting in Windows Vista Cd and 2 windows 7 Cds but it just fails to read them. The CDs are perfectly fine as they load up nicely in another computer and I don't think my drive is bad because every other CD be it game, software etc runs up fine. Even Fedora installation CD works up.
I called the customer care but they couldn't help.
From what I think, its some software which is preventing from the OS CD to load up or my registry needs some tweaking. But that's just me.
I have a dual boot for Fedora 12 and Windows 7 currently.
I need the Windows OS CD running before this weekend.
Any ideas on what might be a possible cause for the same? It's just such a weird problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
