If neither of the two computers will boot from this disc I would try burning the disc again.

 

Windows 7 has an application called Windows Burn Disk Image which you can use to create the bootable disc.

 

How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.

5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.

6.  After the image has completed being burned click on Close

Check in your Bios, Most of the new computers do not want to let you boot from a CD/DVD, due to Legacy Booting being disabled.

 There's also a free program called Imgburn if the above doesn't help.  FWIW some people have burned a CD with just the .ISO file as downloaded on it, and that of course doesn't work.  You want to see a whole bunch of files on the CD you burn.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

For those running Windows 7 or 8 I suggest the use of the Windows Disk Burner.  It is simpler to use that ImgBurn.

 

For those running Windows Vista or earlier I suggest ImgBurn since these versions of Windows don't include the Disk Burner.
