Hello. Welcome to JustAnswer.

Put the disc in and turn your PC on. When you first turn on your PC, do you see an option for Boot Option or Boot Menu? If so, press that key (F2 on Dell's).

When you get the Boot Menu, select your CD/DVD drive, so you can boot to the Windows 7 Upgrade disc.

This will take you into the upgrade installation.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
