Formatted HDD wont install windows 7 ULT disc


It may be that your BIOS is not setup to boot from CD before HDD. To get to the BIOS, look for the message for getting into the BIOS on the first screen after rebooting. There are many versions of the BIOS depending on the computer, but usually its F1, esc, del, F2, F3. It should say which to push on the first screen after rebooting. Look in the BIOS fot boot order, then put CD drive as the first boot order. Then save by either hitting F10, or pressing esc. This will make it so it looks for a boot.ini on the CD before firing up the HDD. Some CDs/DVD's will boot on their own, but usually it will say 'Press any key to boot from CD'. Press that and go from there. I would choose the option to format the drive before it installs, since the way you did it might not of erased it all the way. (Usually a clean formatted HDD will say 'Missing Operating System', not boomgr missing). Try that first then let me know if this worked for you. Also, if you are using an windows 7 upgrade disk, it will not work. Has to be the complete operating system disk for a clean install.

you need to format your HDD before using it. Windows uses NTFS file system, so use some disk utility to format HDD.

After fdisk and format of hdd install of os freezes after 2min. when it says windos is starting, tried differant versions of windows does the same thing!!!! Please help!!!!!!


PXE media failure means the system is trying to boot via Network card not your hard drive. When you performed fdisk then formatted the disk, you might have not selected an active or logical partitioning to support the OS. Run the PSA diagnostics by holding the Fn button before turning on your computer. If it gives you an error, it means your HDD has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If it freezes during the the loading of files during the installation, it means that your RAMs are bad because the windows loader dumps all the information to the RAM chips. If it does hang during the installation of files, two points of failure are to be looked upon, the RAMs and the HDD. I recommend you reset the BIOS to the factory settings as to reset the boot priority so it does boot to HDD first, not to any of the bootable drives available on your computer.
