So the first thing we have to do is push in our Windows 7 discs into the DVD drive. That should spin up all by itself. If for some reason it doesn’t there are comments in the show notes to tell you how to get the DVD drive to run the disc. So at the moment here the Windows 7 disc will spin up and present a dialog Windows so we just wait for that.
So here we go, here's our dialog window. There's an option there to check compatibility online. But the purpose of this tutorial we’re going to assume that you’ve already checked the compatibility before you enough and purchase the Windows 7 upgrade disc. So we’re going to click on install those seven type screen and you can see that set up its copying temporary files. All right, with the temporary files copied set up is starting.
