    Well, I downloaded it from Microsoft's site. I filled out the "order form," and did all the email said. I even burnt 2 copies of it onto disk as well as mount the iso to my Daemon drive. Now no matter what I do, it tells me that I need to boot up with CD. Done that. Still no go. Any suggestions. The email that Microsoft sent me said that it doesn't autoplay then to use the setup.exe. Still tells me to boot up w/ CD.

    is the cd set to be your first boot device?

    yup, I set it as my first boot device and then tried setting it to my only boot device. It starts to run the "Boot from cd" text but then hops into windows naturally.

    I think you're meant to strike a button or the 'Enter' key for it to start booting from CD when the text shows up.
