    Okay I burned SeaToolsDOS207EURO.iso onto my disk (Finally) Do I have to insert it into my PC and wait for it to do its magic or do I have to switch it on manually by logging onto an account, going onto the disc etc?

    When you first turn you computer on you will see a message to press a certain key to enter setup. It is usually an F key or esc or del. Press that key as it is first starting up. Pay attention, as the message may flash very quickly.

    This will take you into BIOS. Here, you want to look for Boot order, or Boot sequence, or maybe even just Boot.

    You want to set you CD drive as the first boot device. You, usually, press the plus and minus keys to move you devices up and down.

    Now insert the CD into the drive and exit setup SAVING changes.

        Did you get into setup?
        Did you change your boot order?
        What program did you use to burn the diagnostic disk?

        If you simply burned the .iso it won't be bootable...check the Seagate site again for FULL instructions on creating the bootable CD.

          Go to this page:  http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/ and download SeaTools for DOS.

          There's an instruction link on that page, as well.

              is there any chance i can use a different type of burner other than the ones listed in the how to burn an iso image link? because i got an lg burner and i dont have any others.

              LG is simply the model of your CD burner...what software program do you use to burn CDs?
