I bought a new laptop (Lenovo with Core i5 2nd gen processor), which came with DOS. Now I tried to install Windows 7 with a DVD on start up.

I got the message 'Press any key to boot from CD/DVD'.

I pressed a key, but nothing happened after that. The same screen remained there even after a long wait.

Please provide some solutions.

Wait.. new laptop.. Sandy Bridge i5.. came with DOS?! I'm sorry if I'm rather sceptical of that. Are you sure? –  Bob Mar 4 '12 at 10:53
yes. I am sure. Well, i opted it voluntarily, it actually saved some bucks for me. –  Nitinzz Mar 4 '12 at 11:33
You changed your boot options to boot from DVD? –  BullDozier1337 Mar 4 '12 at 19:55
