New hdd. Not working on laptop but is working on my desktop
Ok I've searched all over the Internet for hours and still havnt found the solution I've been looking for. Excuse me for any mistakes or leaving something out I'll do my best.
I just bought an asus ul50vt laptop(windows 7) without a hard drive. I bought a new hard drive separately which is a Fujitsu 2.5" 120gb. Everything on and in the laptop is all manufacture so nothing has been replaced or changed.
So heres the issue. I popped the hdd in my asus and powered it on an I got missing bootmgr. So I put in the windows 7 dvd(burnt not original) but it just attempts to read and automatically goes and tries to boot from the new hdd. And it's goes in the same cycle. So I had the idea to disconnect the hdd in my desktop and connect the new hdd to my desktop. I booted from the same windows 7 installation DVD but this time the the desktop gave me the option to boot from dvd(it said press any key to boot from cd) so I installed windows 7, went through the whole process and used it like a brand new computer. I shut the desktop down, disconnected the new hdd and reconnected it to my asus. It started to boot but when it got to "starting windows", it froze for about 1/2 second and the blue screen came on for mayne 1/4 of a second at the most. Then restarted itself into the same cycle. I tried the windows 7 DVD but it again Acted like it read it and went straight to the hdd into the cycle again.
what I've tried already:
Changed the setting in the bios menu to cd/DVD priority and hdd 2nd.
Repair hdd but all it does it look for issues and 15 min later after "attempting to repair" it says cannot repair and asked me to send it to Microsoft and I hit finish and it shuts down.
Taking the battery out and booting with ac cord.
Putting the hdd back into the desktop and hitting start windows normally and it works fine.
So could this be an issue with my disk drive because it feels loose and wiggly when it's pulled out to insert the DVD. Anyone have any idea what's going on or what else I can do? Thanks

Hi there, Welcome to SF
Couple of points, firstly i dont think theres anything wrong, i believe the only problem is that your machine is not booting from the disc its trying to boot the HDD which was initially blank and then from another machine hence the blue screen.
All you need to do is get the HDD in the target machine and get it to boot from disk by hitting F2 on startup and selecting it, then you should be good for claen install formatting drive on the way Clean Install Windows 7 guidelines here
