          Make sure the cables to your hard drive and optical drive (DVD) are attached properly. Then boot your computer to the BIOS setup and have your computer boot directly to the optical drive. The optical drive should be first on your boot order. After making the bios changes, place your OS product disk in the optical drive. Once you reboot the computer again your computer should go directly to the OS setup.
