Hi guys im trying to re-install windows 7 on my hard drive but when i try and boot from my bootable sub it just goes to boot from my hdd. The setting ahve been changed correctlyin the BIOS and the iamge has been burnt correctly as i have used it previously. When i disconnect my hdd it boots from the usb fine however once connected it doesn't.

Hello... MB's have a key assigned to give you a BIO's menu for picking a Boot device... MY MB is the F12 key.

Hello... Are you setting AND saving your a New boot order in your BIO's?
What MB do you have? and have you Read your Manual/PDF?

Hi yes all of the above have been done. Ive done it plenty of times before however now it suddenly skips the boot preference. Once my hdd is unconnected then it does boot from the usb and it is getting recognised in the boot menu
