If a system cannot boot from CD/DVD when the optical drive is the first boot device, then there is a fault preventing the drive from operating correctly. Basically the possibilities are a dirty laser lens (cleaning), a faulty drive (eg laser failed) or a problem with the interface to the drive. If the drive is removable, extract and reinsert it in case there's a bad contact. Otherwise, get the store to remedy the fault.

To to what Platypus posted, you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device and the hdd the second device.

 

You should read this article at PCMAG.com before deciding to install Windows 7 over Windows 8.

Why not do what I did?

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/start-menu-in-windows-8-with-classic-shell/

Windows 8 no longer includes the traditional Start Menu that Windows users have become associated with using. Instead they replaced it with a new interface called the Windows Start Screen that many people find to be not as intuitive as the traditional Start Menu. This is especially the case if you are not using a touch screen. With this in mind, a free program called Classic Shell has been updated to support the ability to add a Start Menu to Windows 8.

 

This computer now boots to the desktop and operates as if it had Windows 7, However it is still the newest Windows. Or You can wait until October and do the free upgrade to Windows 8.1

 

From Here: http://www.techradar.com/us/reviews/pc-mac/software/operating-systems/windows-8-1-1161745/review

The big headline news is that the Start button has returned to Windows 8 with Windows 8.1, although it still goes to the Start screen rather than the Start menu. There is also more integration between the desktop and Start screen to stop the jarring of the two interfaces.

................

There will also be a boot-to-desktop feature in the final build

 

Plus Windows 7 Will boot slower on that laptop than Windows 8.

 

To summarize, With Classic Shell I like Windows 8 as much as Windows 7.

 

Good Luck

Roger
