    Agreed. Didn't want to go down the rabbit hole originally, but some nasty things can happen with Microsoft and "dual boot". If the ISO is install media (and I'm 95% sure), the secondary HDD route is recommended. Make sure to have your original hard drive totally unplugged during the installation (seriously). Just do that during the install and your primary hard drive is safe.

    Dannno's right. Not recognizing the ISO is a boot device priority problem. F2 is usually the key to strike/hold while the computer is booting, that takes you to the BIOS where there should be a boot/startup tab to view (with the boot device list). You'll hit the + key on the highlighted option to increase the priority of the desired device. *Alternatively, the BIOS boot screen usually tells you at the bottom "F for boot device menu", usually F12 that will let you select the boot device on a one-time basis. Presumably, your ISO is just installation media and it's going to prompt you to install the operating system somewhere. Your best bet is going to be using a second hard drive. *Before messing with anything, make sure you have a backup of the files you need. Seriously. Test a restore of some important directory before believing the backup works. I've lived that nightmare before.
