3.Press any key when prompted, and then follow the instructions that appear.
4.On the Install Windows page, enter your language and other preferences, and then click Next.
If the Install Windows page doesn't appear, and you're not asked to press any key, you might need to change some system settings. To learn how to do this, see Start your computer from a Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive.
5.On the Please read the license terms page, if you accept the license terms, click I accept the license terms, and then click Next.
6.On the Which type of installation do you want? page, click Custom.
