Windows 7: Toshiba sattelite m45 cann't boot, BLACK SCREEN

14 Dec 2011   #11

windows 7 x86

I took out my hard drive and clone it on pc,

yes in the bios I was setting up something like this FDD->HDD->CD-ROM->LAN
hope can read my fd boot as usual

only this time my fd is not detected and jump straight to HDD
I've tried all the various formats provided RMPREP usb tools <>
the result is same... the boot direct to HDD.
and my cd-rom clearly broken.

so the conclusion I think that this laptop does not support the FDD now model.

the problem did not lie in the BSOD.
it's just that when he was booting from the hard drive [I have my pc cloning] did not show anything. just black as usual before going into the bootscreen just black, just black and keep black screen. but the laptop is on.

therefore I also think its possible vga

TRY DVD>HDD boot order if you want the Win7 DVD to boot. Is it a DVD drive?

Disable FDD in BIOS. Can I be any more clear? It cannot be used any longer and will cause problems!
