My laptop is a bit messed up at the moment as I think the os has become corrupt at some point
Therefore I am trying to install a different version of windows onto it but every time I ask it to boot to disk it just goes to start up repair
Any ideas?

Can you open the BIOS Screen?

If you can go to the Boot Option and set the NB to boot from the Optical Drive before the HDD so that the Windows Installer can start running from the Windows Install Media.

Just remember to save the changes as you exit the BIOS or they will not stick and the system will continue to boot off the HDD.
