When you first start your computer, press F2 (may be different according to your computer, look for the option to boot into BIOS)
From BIOS you can configure the computer to read from the USB you created. Restart your machine, with the USB in, and you should get to the OS startup and installation.
Good luck!

Try to make sure that the installation that you put on the flash drive is bootable. Use pendrive Linux http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/
I personally use it as it is very easy to make bootable flash drives

SOURCE: 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.

My dell inspiron 5620 wont go further a black error recovery screen


Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot, Try a system restore/recovery. If that fails, place a repair desk in the DVD/CD rom and reboot from DVD/CD rom, try a repair my computer first. Your MBR is missing or your HDD needs replacing. Is the HDD LED blinking at start of machine? Open the machine and reseat the HDD and memory mods. If that fails, remove HDD and test, replace if necessary. You didn't mention your OS? Windows XP? This may help: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windowsxp/f/download-windows-xp.htm

Bootmgr is missing


when you were uploading your OS and if an HDD or USB was connected or you have a complete system restore lying around somewhere, You're boot mngr is in there . Did you do a clean install? If so than your OEM and Boot options is in an EFI partition hidden on an internal HD and is Linux based. If you go to your MMC console and hit Disc Manager, you'll see something like 100 mb EFI , with no Disk letter assigned and also a MRP, Which is a Microsoft reserved partition.. Kookie stuff goin' on in that ASUS place.

Operating system not found


Ok, well either the drop has broken something on the motherboard, or, the hard drive, has been jolted so hard the heads have crashed into the platter, and killed the HDD. I would almost guarantee, that is whats wrong. Try taking out your HDD, hook it up to a USB, to HDD "Dongle" and see if your HDD responds, If it doesn't then you need a new HDD, if it does, the fault, is within the laptops circuits.

Everytime we boot up our computer it says press f1 to do something and f2 to enter setup mode?


generally an indication that something is wrong in the system setup. Press F2 and enter setup, check the time and date settings and the system event log (If BIOS has one) for incorrect settings, also check and see if the BIOS shows a hard drive installed.

If time and are wrong, set them to correct and save settings. If system keeps losing time and date after power is removed, then the backup battery may need to be replaced.

If HDD is not detected, then reseat it. If still not detected replace it.

I have a HP Pavillion DV 2000 laptop with me. When i boot my system it gives 1 long beep followed by two short beeps and the system doesnt boot. I am not sure as what to do. Can someone help me here?


This website:
http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

Lists standard beep codes for computers. The one long, followed by two short beeps indicates a display problem according to the site.

I have heard other people say that the same beep codes specify a RAM problem.

Have you recently installed any new RAM or a new graphics card, or made changes to either.

It seems likely to be the graphics card because of the missing info on the screen. Usually when RAM is bad there is something on the screen.
