My machine is a recent model Systemax, less than 2 years old. It came with Vista 32bit and I bought Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade for it. When I insert the Windows 7 DVD into the drive, it churns a little but does not recognize the disc. If I double click the DVD drive icon, it prompts me to insert a disc. I tried a different DVD (Office 2007) and the drive recognized the disc. I tried the Windows 7 disc in my Dell laptop and it recognized the disc.
So basically, the disc is good and the drive is good, but they don't like each other.
I tried to boot to the Windows 7 DVD and the system did not see it. I turned off the Lightscribe service and that didn't help.
Does anybody have an idea what's wrong here?
