trying to reinstall windows 7 64bit so i can partition hard drives but i cant load OS from my cdrom/dvdrom. Tried going into bios and changing settings so first boot device is cdrom but OS just keeps on loading time after time. How do i boot from my OS disc?
When the DVD boots, it gives a message saying "Hit any key to boot from DVD..."
This will time out if you don't press a key. It usually gives you around 15 to 30 seconds.
Thanks for reply, however, this is where my problem lies. I press any key when prompted to do so and after 3 or 4 seconds my computer loads windows. I have never had a problem like this before. I am using three monitors if that could somehow be a factor but not sure how. Any other suggestions?
all right so i was able to boot using usb. Thanks for the suggestion.
However i am still not satisfied with something. Every time i try to boot from the cd and it asks me to "press any key" nothing happens and the OS loads. I have gone into bios and made my CDROM, my TSST corp CDD and my USB CDROM the first boot device. Someone told me that using a wireless keyboard is the cause. However i went out and bought a usb keyboard and still the same issue. Any idea what the problem could be? I think it might be the DVD writer but it works fine in all other instances.
