Looks like some BIOS menu(?) Select drive0 there. Is it really a HDD (I thought SSD)? Is it really the C400-MTF you want to boot from?

It might make a difference if this laptop is using UEFI or Legacy Bios.
It would help if you include more info in your SF specs, including the laptop make and model.

In BIOS settings there's an option... something like "boot priority" or "boot device order". What is that list?
1-cd, 2-usb, 3-harddrive ?

It is a Fujitsu Lifebook i7 U772 32B SSD.

When I remove my windows installation usb my pc shows the first picture attached to this message...

When I dont remove it, it goes again to the initial installation windows screen, even if I just installed the windows in the ssd..

When I run the diagnostic test from the application menu, my machine recognises both SSD and the other drive..

He has a ssd, he had ubuntu on it, he now wants to install 7 on the ssd.

Everytime someone here had ubuntu, linux etc. they had trouble installing W7, the linux, ubuntu code etc. had to be wiped from the drive before W7 would install.

Nothing in the bios should have to be changed.

What is fixed disk C400 ?

This looks like one of those hybrid things.

Greg knows about this.

Or is this a separate hard drive and an ssd ?

Why are there 2 fixed disks listed ?

32 GB is my SSD and the C400 is my HDD.

My windows USB stick is 8 GB..

If you want to install windows on the 32 GB ssd, the hard drive should not even be installed.
