Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

1) Please post your full specs.

2) What exactly are you trying to do? Install Windows? Reinstall Windows? Repair Windows?

3) When you boot your computer, are you booting from a DVD or your hard drive?

Is this happening when you try to boot your PC? If so, then there are two possibilities:

1. Your Master Boot Record (MBR) is damaged, or
2. You have a CD or DVD in your PC's DVD drive that is not bootable.

Can you tell us which one it is - you can check by removing any USB external storage devices, and maiing sure you have no CD's or DVD's in your CD/DVD drive. Can you also tell us whether you have an OEM Windows installation, or whether you have a Windows installation DVD?
