    So i wanted to format my pc like ive down millions of times before so
    put the vista dvd in

    Restart pc then the, "press any key to boot from cd/dvd" screen come
    up, i press a ke

    Then it repeats the "press any key to boot from cd/dvd" right under th
    previous on

    O_O so whats going on?

    ive tried pressing again on the second prompt and the computer jus
    freezes there it doesnt load windows from the dvd. Also i thought mayb
    if i dont press key again on second prompt then it would load, but no
    it loads the os on the hard drive

    So y wont the pc load the dvd? :

    Could also be that your keyboard is not yet active. Sometimes
    depending on bios settings a USB keyboard may lag in becoming active.
    If it isn't active then pushing a key will not register. A way to tell
    is if you have indicator lights for caps lock or num lock is to press
    these keys and see if there is a response..
