Windows 7: Deleted boot entry! Will WIN7 installation fix it?

Deleted boot entry! Will WIN7 installation fix it?

I have problem.
State of my laptop: Now I havent any OS on my laptop (I formated OS partition)

I accidently deleted "boot manager" boot entry in BIOS. So now in BIOS where I could choose boot order I see now just DVD rom (no HDD,just DVD)

Yet I havent installed any WIN, because I have little problem with it...

I would like to ask you, if I istall WIN7, will it automatically add new boot entry in BIOS (so i will be alble to choose boot order between DVD and HDD)?

Thanks for help

Was the deleted BIOS listing an "EFI boot disk" which needs to be first in boot order to install Win7 to a GPT HD? Why did you delete this?

Try setting the DVD drive to boot first to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - everything you need is in the link.

If you get an error following those steps, post back the exact error text so we can help you with it.
