Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

It should be set to boot from the hard drive.
That should be the primary boot device.

Is there more than one HD on your PC. It says Win7 in specs but you say you're using Vista.

If so you'll need to set the HD first to boot that holds the System boot files. This may be a choice under the HD or storage section of the BIOS.

Then in BIOS Boot order priority make sure HD is set first to boot. Save the settings and exit.

If this fails tell us what choices are there under BIOS Boot order priority.
