I recently purchased a custom built computer without an operating system installed in it. The company said it has been checked to make sure everything works properly but when i put my windows 7 disk in, there is no response. Can someone please please help....?
P.S im a massive n00b. Please show me love hahah.
You probably have to set the computers bios to boot off of a DVD. By default it might be set to boot off the harddrive. If the hard drive is blank you typically get a blinking cursor.
When you turn the computer on it should run a short power on self test (POST) while it is posting there will be an option to hit a key for the boot menu. The key is different depending on the computer. In my case it is F8. You should then get a menu asking you what device to boot from. Pick DVD in the list and your install should start.
