The hard drive I am using is known to be in good working order.

Please explain more fully.

 

Let's assume that you have a DVD containing the Windows 7 installation files.

 

Did you enter BIOS SETUP, and select your DVD-drive as the first boot device?

Or, immediately after power-on, did you press one of the 'F-key' to "change boot order", and then select to boot from the DVD drive?

 

What happened?

What did you expect to happen?

What did not happen?

Wording of any error-messages?
