Windows 7: Attempting to Get This Repaired

Okay, now I'm unsure of how to boot from a flash drive. I adjusted the BIOS so that the first priority is to "Boot from USB-FDD," but it doesn't seem to notice it... It just boots straight to the Startup Repair, bypassing even the failed startup that sends it there every other time.

Your motherboard might have it to boot from USB stick by choosing HDD. Then you might have to choose which HDD (USB Key in this case) in the bios too.

Many bios are different. You could read the motherboard manual or find it online if you need to.

Sometimes if you keep repeatedly pressing F8 as the computer is booting, you can choose there without altering the bios setting(s).

Okay, I'm beginning the reinstall. If I run into any problems, I'll tell you, but so far it's going fine. Thanks a lot to all of you.

Yeah, I think you won't have any further issues with the install. Should be fine now. You're welcome. Let us know.

Okay, now I've run into a problem. It restarts several times during the installation, but each time it starts back up, it doesn't return to where it was previously. It seems to just be repeating.

That's how it normally installs.

I don't remember it restarting from the beginning each time, though, when I first installed it.

It starts over again completely at copying files stage?

I never saw or heard of that before.

Yep. Completely from scratch, each time.

Try setting bios back to boot from the HDD (not USB, the real HDD I mean.)

I have a Point of View 9800GTX+ and this one comes with low cost about 50mm fan. Using XP, it constantly didn't start spinning at boot, causing overheating later under load. Now in 7 the problem is gone. I think it's because of drivers.
