I just recently built a new system, but I'm having trouble installing Windows 7. I bought an OEM disk from newegg, and I set my computer to boot from my CD drive. Windows proceeds to load files...and then I'm presented with a command prompt. X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
I was expecting to have a gui interface install (that's what I've seen previously). Any idea how to fix this/why I'm getting this command prompt instead of the traditional installation guide? Also, I can't throw any commands at the cmd...
FYI, I recycled a hard-drive that's had a previous version of windows on it...so my first guess is to create a bootdisk and completely wipe everything, then try again.

Reboot and use custom install, go into disk tools and delete the partition and start again.
I also answered this in your other posting of this question.
