    Did you burn it with image burning software, it want work with just a straight burn. Did you upgrade from the iso or the dvd? Did you set bios to boot priority as first drive? Can't do much without that disk.

    I understand a pain you may need to borrow or buy a upgrade pro. Downloading iso suck at times, maybe it is only ment for upgrading from the iso file not to burn. Who knows. Try clearing cmos then boot the iso. Somestimes also when it gets stuck the kernal that links all of the firmware and hardware is corrupted. If you have another bootable iso see if that boots as a test eliminate that its you bios. Get yourself a linux distro preferably ubuntu from a news agency around $10 and i will guide you at how to get your docs ect of of the drive. And save it all to your external hdd.

    well it looked like the DVD was the problem as it wasn't bootable...burnt the iso onto another DVD and it booted...tried system restore and fixing it via cmd and automatic repair but nothing worked so had to refresh the system which meant i lost all my programs but hey atleast i got a working laptop again

    well i didn't lose any personal files but lost all the programs that were on the computer...basically i burnt the iso image onto a bootable dvd and booted that then selected the refresh option...if you do lose any personal files there will be a windows.old folder in your C drive so just get them from there
    hope this helped
