System recovery disk window7 64 bit

I just tested the disc on my test system and it worked fine.

You have to press the tab key at the prompt “boot from CD/DVD” to get the Windows 7 64 bit disk to load.

Press tab to continue or F8 for advanced options if needed. The second time I tried it it just automatically ran and went into where the recovery console is. The first I get the tab or F8 choice.

Make sure the BIOS is configured to boot from the CD first.
