  1. There is a flaw in the Windows 7 installer. If your bios thinks there is a floppy drive then it really slows down the install. Go into your BIOS and tell it that there is no floppy drive, and it will install much faster.
  2. ok thanks but i have a problem, when i try to go into BIOS i press the button for BIOS at startup then it says

    Scanning for devices please wait,
