I need help...i've just built myself a new comp and am trying to install Windows Vista Buisness (which my university provides free). I have built the comp and all seems well and fine. The BIOS recognises the dvd/cd drive and the HDD and does'nt make any weird beeping noises.
The problem arises when i put the Vista cd the cd/dvd drive and start the comp. It doesn't autorun the cd and start the instalation process.
Now i have checked the vista cd (cd 1 of 5) to see if it is burned properly and it seems to work fine and go straight to the install screen when i pop it in my current comp.
I have checked the the cd/dvd drive is set to boot first and that the jumper is on "Master" position.
I also poped my XP professional installation cd in the new comp and that goes straight to the blue screen when the message "Push any button to boot from CD" is displayed. This message doesnt even come up when i put the vista cd in, let alone the blue screen.
The only message that comes up is NTLDR is missing....but i'm guessing thats not an issue as the hard drive is new (blank).
