Solved Need help getting my PC to boot up! PLEASE! Tags: New Build Boot Systems Last response: May 15, 2012 3:45 PM in Systems Share CaptainTom May 15, 2012 3:36:18 PM So I have all my parts put together and everything seems to be working. Problem is when I insert my Win7 disc and press a key, NOTHING HAPPENS! Is this common? What could I be doing wrong? Notes: -The motherboard recognizes my BR/DVD Drive and my 1TB HDD -No matter what I seem to do in the boot options bios, nothing happens PLEASE HELP!

I'd definitely try another drive first... just a plain 'ol cd/dvd drive if you got one laying around. Share CaptainTom May 15, 2012 3:45:22 PM Well I just got it to work. I had to switch the sata connect for some reason. WHEW! Big bullet dodged! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
