    Hello Ered,

    Are you able to boot from a USB flash drive instead?

    I DL from the link here (MS) and burned it with IMGburn. I thought all ISO from MS are bootable!! I did, I was able to select USB CD, ...but still not bootable.
    OS install ISO's are yes. Try Brink's suggestion, USB thumb drive. I do all my installs from thumb drives. It's a lot faster than doing it from optical media. I use diskpart to create mine.

    Usually when you request a CD/DVD boot, at boot time BIOS displays a message saying something like "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD..." or something like that (depends on BIOS version). If you fail to press that "any key" in the allotted period of time, the boot procedure will ignore your CD/DVD drive and proceed to the regular boot source. People often make that mistake: request a CD/DVD boot, hit reset button and then just go off to "poor myself a cup of coffee". Once they come back, they begin to wonder why their request to boot from CD/DVD "did not work".

    Does your machine display any prompt of that kind?

    Create a flash drive and try that. Also try booting the DVD on a different computer to make sure it works.

    Hi Brink, NO !!
    I created a new USB Flash Drive and tested it on my main PC and it works fine. But On my Lenovo laptop it doesn't. Somehow Lenovo is not letting me do a clean install . I follow both tutorial to the letter.

    Thanks, I was able to create a good working flash drive from the first option and I tested on my main pc. So, I have a working USB Flash Drive / CD/DVD working as well....but still I'm not able to boot from them on my laptop.

    @ AndreyT, Yes on my main PC I get those words. But on my Laptop I DON'T ,. So, I don't really know were else to click on my Bios for that I could boot from it.

    Disable secure boot in BIOS. Also try changing the hard disk from AHCI to IDE mode.

    If there's a choice in the BIOS, choose USB-HDD not USB-CD.
