'Loading Operating System...

Okay.

Back to your first post. First, what do you mean "when I boot from cd in bios"?

Next, I'm guessing you didn't burn the iso file properly. Did you use a dedicated .iso burner? Here are instructions: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/burnisofile.htm

What i meant by "when I boot from cd in bios" was that when I shutdown/restart then press f12 enter the boot menu selecting the CD-ROM option didnt work
I used astroburn lite and i am worried that maybe it didnt make it into a BOOTable DVD, However the issue that i am reinstalling windows because of will not allow me to install programs with .msi executables and most .exes don't work either so I was not able to use microsoft's burner

Okay. Did you burn it as an image? Please follow the instructions in the link I posted and use a dedicated .iso burner and reburn. Also, in bios make sure the optical drive is the first device in the device boot order. Thanks.

In the process of doing this now, will then make sure optical drive is first and will try to install again.
