Windows 7: Installation repeating itself

Installation repeating itself

So I searched and could not find anything on this. Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. During the installation it will get all the way to the first reboot. Once it restarts it just goes back to the choose language screen and starts all over. I can't seem to find a way to get out of this loop.

NVM. Found a solution by messing around. Apparently it is supposed to be booting to the harddrive instead of the disk once it restarts. Just changed the boot order.

It won't boot from the DVD unless you "press a key" when prompted to. If you leave it alone, it will boot from the hard drive. In fact, your boot order should always start with the CD/DVD, then HDD.

The comment wasn't related to what the majority of board manufacturers set as boot order default, it was in reference to the statement "It should be". Personally I prefer Hard Drive if you have a first boot device option in the post screen.

Oh what silly things there are to debate...
