Boot manager problem

Have revamped my old Desktop 1 with a new CPU - Athlon 260 8GGB RAM a Samsung 930 SSD and Coolermaster TX3 to send to my brother in the UK.

Am also going to put in a Samsung Spinpoint 500GB HDD for data transfer etc

However on power up it runs through the devices and runs through the post process which ends in a message BOOTMGR is missing.

Am using the OEM disk that the original builder sent with the machine ( a pre-built I had for a spare).

Have set the BIOS to ACHI and - which it was before and the optical for the first boot device but it keeps stalling at this message and Ctrl/Alt /Del to start again.

Am at a loss as to what is wrong anyone point me in some sort of direction please as I thought this would be a straight forward swap of components and reinstall.

Oh and have tried new cables and a brand new optical drive but with the same result.

What exactly is this installation disc you were using. That did not sound like a normal Win7 installation disc.

And di you disconnect all HDDs during the installation whilst you were installing on the SSD.

Hiyya Wolfganag yes mate I only had the SSD in as the HDD is still wiping on the other machine.

The disk is a genuine one although it is a pre SP1 disk and I bought the machine form my usual dealer PCCG is Melbourne where I get my OEM's from anyway.

Hiyya Wolfgang Have found the problem through a Google - my Gigabyte BIOS has a first boot device choice of CD-ROM and if one scrolls down that list there is the installed DVD optical.

Set it as first boot device and it's loading

It wasn't very clear at first until I saw someone with a similar problem and that setting was mentioned and see the CD-ROM and still nothing happened so then just idly tapped the down arrow in that setting and the list started to scroll down - I thought it was only the devices listed when first accessed. The scroll bar wasn't very distinct to sat the least!
