Ive been trying for quite a few days now to install my copy of windows 7 on my home computer. I have changed the boot order correctly, everything is in the right priority. When i save and exit, windows restarts. I am then prompted to boot from CD like " Press any key to boot from CD........." i cannot do anything as, pressing the keyboard does nothing. I have reformatted my hardrive. After the seconds count down to boot from CD i am displayed with "BOOTMGR is missing" as i assume it then tries to boot from the hardrive, which is starnge as it is not on the BOOT priority list. I have checked that USB support is enabled in BIOS which it is
When i disable the hardrive in BIOS (phoenix) from the SATA 2 channel, it then boots normally from the CD and i am taken into the setup menu for the windows 7 installation. The only problem is i can't install onto the hardrive as it is not detected, displaying a message along the lines of "make sure the controller is enabled in BIOS"
i really don't know what to do, as it seems i have tried everything, maybe try a ps2 keyboard, or last resort take it into a shop
any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.
