    I want to clean Install Windows Vista Ultimate but for some reason I canno't boot from the disc on Startup. The message Boot from CD comes up, which is normally shortly followed by "Press any key to continue.." but for some reason that never happens and Windows XP just continues to boot. I have boot order set to my DVD drive as #1 so this is just strange. Is my disc missing required files?

    Have you got any other cd/dvd drives to put it in?

    Is the vista disc the one from microsoft or a burnt version?
