On the Boot manger window, was there any other option besides "Press any key to boot from cd"

It was not supposed to load windows files, it should have gone to the first screen shown in the tutorial.

I suspect it is booting from the OS hard drive. 

 

Edit.

 

Are you running on the battery, beeping noise.

A repairdisc created on any version of windows 7 should work.

The beeping, are you running on the battery?

 

You can test the Repair Disc on the Windows computer.

Insert in the tray.

Restart and start tapping F12.

Highlight, boot from DVD/CD, press enter.

You should get that first screen in the Tutorial.  If yes, the cd is OK.

 

Eject the cd and remove it, restart the computer. 

 

 

Remember the OIS burning?

What do you mean please.

OK.

Try entering the BIOS and change the boot order to DVD/CD first.   Remember to Save Settings and then exit 

Post back if successful.

OK.

You can try a third party repair tool. Tweaking.com - Windows Repair,  Download and burn to disc Do not use yet,http://www.oldergeek...file.php?id=305

and this one so we can use a CMD prompt, Ultimate Boot CD, download and burn to disc, Do not use yet,http://www.oldergeek...file.php?id=242

 

Taking the dog for a walk and going to bed,

 

Perhaps teryy has some suggestions.

can you run the memory test, seeing how the repair disc is not loading into memory that may be a source of the problem.
