Windows 7: Windows wonīt boot after second restart??

Windows wonīt boot after second restart??

Hi Iīm new in the forum and if i post something wrong sorry.

So I insert the disk, set the laptop to boot from dvd first, hdd second, restart, press any key for the installation to start, choose my installation settings.
After windows installs all the files, updates, etc, it must reboot, and it does.
Now when it reboots, it should bypass the "boot from dvd" thing and boot from the hard disk.
IT booting from HD an will reboots second time, and it get stuck on the screen where after loading BIOS,where also says "Boot from DVD" if i don't pres press any key it like freezing what i can do is just to <ctrl+alt+del> to reboot.

i tried many thing changed the order to boot from HD after first restart, tried another win7 home basic, premium, and ultimate(all x64) etc, i had win7 if not wrong it was home basic(x32)

Which license do you own for WIn7? Install that one. Where did you get the disk?

At first reboot remove the DVD. If that doesn't help unplug the DVD drive. Report back results.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS. If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install:

Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here. I would use a fresh ISO written with tool in Step 2 as yours is in question. Do not use a version for which you do not have a Product Key as it will not work.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. You are creating the partition here for the purpose of wiping the HD and marking Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Go to the manufacturers website to get all your drivers.

I would help you find it but you have not filled in your computer specifications.

Tell us what make and exact model of computer you have.

Also, there should be a sticker somewhere on the pc, that sticker should tell you what operating system came installed on your pc. I have never heard of a computer being sold with Linux installed.

It looks like this.

It explains in detail in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
how to handle drivers in a new install.

You should have already enabled Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates, with reboots, until there are no more offered. This will deliver most drivers. Any drivers still missing in Device Manager can be imported from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC or Device.

Let us know how this works first, then any devices which remain without driver.

What is the make and model of your laptop?

DId you enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3), Check for Updates, then run all rounds of Important and Optional WIndows UPdates? If not do that now. This delivers most drivers if it is done exactly as I wrote.
