Answers :

Hi there.
Just make sure the boot order is set to the CD/DVD, you can do this by going into the bios or pressing F12 while the computer starts up.
please post back if you need any more assistance.

Nope you're good to go. You might be asked to make a partition to install windows in. and you can decide to make one large or possibly to make one smaller than the total space available so you can make another drive later on.
