Windows 7: Press a key to reboot ?

31 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Familial edition Premium 6.1 7600
Press a key to reboot ?

After installing W7 (XP erased), no way to boot directly from disk (like with old XP on same disk).
I tried to boot in command mode and exec bootrec command (with /fixmbr, with /fixboot and finally with /rebuildbcd).

Any idea?
Thanks for your help
