Default Re: Hard drive boot problem.

Well I put in the HD and my windows cd, it formatted and installed windows, then said it needed to reboot to finish the installation.. Well when it reboot it hangs at the "press f2 to enter bios" screen and does nothing else.. I cant even get into bios now. Threw the HD back into old comp and reinstalled, etc and it works so its not the hd. What would cause this other comp to just lock up now? Even when I boot with the cd in it still hangs there. Thanks
