We have set our DVD drive to be the first bootable drive in the BIOS. Now we can continue and install Windows on our blank hard drive.

  1. Start the computer with your Windows operating system install disc in the DVD drive. You may have to power the computer on once to have power to open the DVD drive.

  2. The computer should now boot into Windows Setup, and start your installation. As we mentioned before, you will have the option to partition and format your drive for your Windows installation as the setup program takes care of all this for you. Follow the on screen prompts, and your documentation that came with your version of Windows to complete the installation.


Once the Windows installation is complete, you can go to the next section below.
