Question about Dell Inspiron 7000/7500
I have a dell inspiron 7000 with a new blank hard drive. when i try to install a os and set it to boot from cd drive..and restart it..it doesnt install the os. what do i do?
Check whether the CD that you boot from is a "Bootable CD" . While burning an OS in a CD/DVD the option of "Make the disc Bootable" should be ticked on which makes the disc bootable with its boots records. The system will realise that the disc is a bootable one only if the disc has these boot files in it. Try setting the boot sequence to Cd drive as first priority and dont forget to save the settings. If all your hardware componets are good, the above things will be the probabilities.
