Windows 7: Boot config not working, tried clean install, can't install windows 7

29 Jun 2011   #11

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)

Wait it out freakyfrowe, I have seen some very long drawn out installs, & never really determined what caused it to be that way. Every install can be different.

Why wouldn't you get a message that there is no Operating System when you have wiped and HD and have no Operating System?

Did you go out and buy a new HD because of this, without even testing the HD with the maker's diagnostic/repair CD scan?

Please work through the steps we have given you and reply to each one, as you are not cooperating so we can help you interactively.
