So starting last week, my computer started getting a blue screen. So yesterday it was so bad to the point where it wouldn't load windows at all. So I ran Ultimate Boot CD and it diagnosed the HDD was messed up. So I wiped it clean using Dban and now I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7 Professional but whenever I put the disc in and restart the rig I get a "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" Any ideas?
Oh and if it helps, the rig is only like 6 months old. I did some reading and the only lead I have is to format the HDD and try again. I am also just realizing that I'm a dumbass and should have done system recovery, but too late now.
Alright, well I tried to boot from a USB and it just says "Boot from CD/DVD:" and then nothing.
I downloaded the Windows 7 iso.exe file. I was actually confused what to do with it, so I ran it and told it to save the iso to the disc. Now that I think about it, that's probably not the right thing to do. I should probably take that ISO I got from the exe file and actually burn it to the disc right? The only problem is, that file is like 2gb big, whereas my discs are only 700MB...so what should I do? Go find discs that can hold that much in hope that it works after that?
