Windows 7: Used KillDisk, now can't Boot up Installation Disk. (Windows 7 Pro x64

I actually ran the test before wiping the drives and there were no problems found. But, currently I have only one stick of RAM in because if I have both in the 'Starting Windows' would freeze.

The answer to your question is to press the combo keys at the first screen when DVD boots. Or you can access Command Box using System Recovery Options.

This is to assure that KillDisk truly wiped the boot sector since we use Diskpart Clean Command to do that.

If that fails, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

If this fails, create, format and mark Active a Primary partition to try install using Step 2.2 here: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

Actually thanks, but I found the problem. It was the graphics card. I switched it with an old geforce mx200 and it got to where i could see the background. But unfortunately the graphics card is too old and too slow so it freezes right there. I have no onboard graphics and i just need a way to bypass it with the radeon hd 5670 card. Any ideas?

does this mean that you can use win 7, even if in a crippled fashion?

the older graphics card i stuck is getting passed the black screen blinkomg cursor. So i end up seeing the windows blue background but it freezes right there because the graphics card is too slow.

If the card ran before you wiped the HD to reinstall then it should still work.

The problem may be that you need to find the correct driver. Win7 handles drivers differntly than XP so you should first see what driver it provides in the installer and via optional Windows Updates. If this doesn't work correctly import the latest driver from the PC or Device's Support Downloads webpage.

This is explained along with other steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall Factory OEM
