Windows 7 x64 cannot bootup after fresh install on Lenovo laptop HELP!
This is my first post on this forum, though I come here alot to look for solutions :-)
I had some problems with a Lenovo X220 that I was working on and decided to reformat the it.
Background info :
-Installed from the docking station's DVD-ROm - no integrated DVD rom
-Installation of Windows 7 x64 completed successfully
-Prompted to reboot, when rebooted, Windows 7 does not load, I eject the DVD so as to not get the "boot from dvd" option , but WIndows 7 still does not load - Black screen with no HD activity (ie HD light not blinking)
-reinstalled more than 4 times, same problem.
-repaired the MBR - no luck.
My first time to work on a Lenovo machine , PLEASE HELP!!!!
Many thanks in advance,

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,
wipe the HD using Diskpart Clean Command from DVD System Recovery Options Command Line,
reset BIOS to defaults Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS
While in BIOS setup set SATA controller to AHCI to try install.
Then follow these steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
