Windows 7: Unable to boot from disc

Again you are bumping up against the latest hardware features with an XPired OS. The most compatible setting in this case is IDE.

Sometimes RAID is also a generic setting for Auto, however I doubt it in this case if it also offers the AHCI and IDE. However you can check for sure by reading your manual on the maker's Support Downloads webpage as you should be to demystify the settings.

I just noticed that there's a setup UEFI option in the pre boot options. Should I select that? If not, how do I do those commands you mentioned earlier?

No, the point is that you must cut UEFI out of the boot process unless you're installing to an GPT disk.

To assure you're not already using a GPT disk run the Diskpart commands I gave you earlier from DVD accessing DISKPART At PC Startup.

Ok, I follow what it said in the tutorial- do I quit it now like it said in the tutorial or something else?

Did you type Convert MBR on the selected Disk #?

Just read your post where you mention the commands. I now type 'clean' now, right?

Again: Follow Diskpart Clean Command

then add after Clean: convert mbr.

Exit.

Tom,
as the writeup and greg said Clean.

You can use clean all if you would like, however, be prepared to go visit the local bar or whatever as you await the completion of the clean all.
