A black screen with a blinking cursor is probably the result of not having the hard drive set as the first boot device in the BIOS Boot Priority. I get that when a CD/DVD drive is set first. It shouldn't delay the boot as much as it has in your case, but it is still work checking into.

I have installed Windows 7 on Seagate HHD (500 GB). When I start machine there is only HDD connected to PC. It is Seagate. My friend who is a computer expert is going to update the BIOS. Before that I am going to try yours method. Thank for quick reply. I will report you.

Why I said that its not a good idea is for the reason if something went wrong like a power outage or an interruption you would be buying a new motherboard.. But glad this issue has been solved.

I have windows 7 x64 laptop. Few months ago, I have installed windows 8 in a partition with primary boot as windows 8 and thus I had dual boot drive (windows 7 and windows8). As I didn't like windows 8 last week I have deleted the partition. Now the system is searching for windows 8 during the boot and not booting windows 7. Can you please help
