I just got my new laptop which is the HP ENVY dv6-7250ca, but it comes with Windows 8 which I would like to get rid of and put Windows 7.
When I put my bootable Win7 cd and restart the laptop, it doesn't actually boot though. It just shows the HP logo with a spinning circle thingy for a while and then goes straight into the OS.
Anyone have any ideas on how I can launch the CD so that I can format the drives and continue with the installation?
Also pressing F8 or Del don't do anything and I'm wondering how I can access the BIOS and the Safe Mode boot up options in case I need to.
EDIT: I think the laptop doesn't have the DVD set up as first bootable device or whatever so I'm gonna have to enter the bios first anyway to fix that.
