My computer running Windows 7 got an error the other day basically saying that some of the boot files went corrupt or missing. To repair it I would basically have to buy Windows again, and since I have had many issues with Windows, I do not want to buy it again or try to repair it.
So at this point, my computer won't boot at all. At startup for Windows it gives the message about missing or corrupt files. The only options Windows gives me is to repair windows or to boot normally. Neither of these work. They just freeze the computer.
I made a cd on my roommates computer with the .iso image of the vector linux and tried to load it on my computer by loading the cd in the tray and pressing F12 while booting to give me the option to boot with the cd. The Windows takes over and goes straight to the repair screen or boot normally screen.
What are my options? I really don't care if I have to delete the Windows 7 off my computer because it's already corrupt and I would have to buy another version of Windows anyway. Is there anyway I can install Linux around the Windows or is there anyway I can delete the the Windows? I don't get any options by pressing the function keys at boot up.
