    hi.first enter BIOS and set the boot order to dvd/cd rom as 1st boot device,put the install disc in the drive then exit BIOS saving the settings.watch the screen for "press any key to boot from cd" follow the screen prompts to complete fomat and install,when install has completed then you need to put the drivers disc and instal chipset/lan/audio/video drivers (should be an option to automatically install these).here is a full tutorial for fresh install.http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...mLZpRxgEc3noK8Xb1Db4Dww&bvm=bv.42661473,d.bGE
