Do you know how to check the jumper settings on the hard drive and the cd rom drive?
I just looked it up on Google now. I tried booting off the Windows 7 disk three times on all three settings.
I left the hard drive the same though.
CD Drive didn't even show up in the boot menu.
But I just ended up deciding to just buy a new SATA Drive off Newegg because the drive I have is old and IDE is getting outdated(not to mention there so big and restrict airflow) . It only CD Read and Write capabilities and its cream colored so doesn't match my black case.
