As I understand it, he's saying that the CD with the Win 7 installer won't boot so that he can install Win 7 on the HDD.

Is this an original installation disc?

Hi AaLF,

If you have got another computer that you can use you can download a Win 7 Pro SP1 x64 ISO and burn it to a DVD/USB and try using that.

Two thoughts-

If your system is UEFI, you could try temporarily disabling Securboot in the BIOS.

You could also try to change the BIOS to Legacy rather than ACHI (if that's what it's set to).
