Probably won't help but do you have a flash drive that is at least 4gb? You can copy the windows installation to the flash drive and boot off of that instead of the disc. http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool
Unplug the mouse only see if that does anything. --- Corsair 500r ~ P8Z68-V Pro ~ i5 2500k ~ Hyper 212+ ~ Corsair 2x4gb ~ TX750w v2 ~ 560 Ti ~ F3 1TB ~ Crucial M4 128GB ~ Xonar DG ~ Tt Meka G1 ~ Asus PA248Q
sometimes it just goes in the lowest numbered sata port as opposed to your installation drive. I had a 60 gb hard drive in my computer just cuz, and I ended up with my MBR on it. Only just got around to taking it out and moving the MBR myself.
Try doing it from a flash drive. Aside from that i'm of no help. --- http://i.imgur.com/2dhh8tn.gif | http://i.imgur.com/p5EXSiq.jpg http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/2/7/201227_v1.gif
Well, I have made some progress despite not resolving the issue.
-I know what the problem is now
-I have a sheet printed out with instructions on how to fix it
I now have another issue stopping me from fixing it (my mouse and keyboard die as soon as I boot a Windows disc) so I will pursue the solution to that problem and come back to this one. Thanks very much for your help. --- My movie and gaming room: http://imgur.com/a/IjWr1 My pets: http://imgur.com/a/P9VGU
Problem 1: unresolved, but I know how to fix it, I think
Problem 2: resolved (Windows does not load USB 3.0 drivers when booting from disk. Mouse and keyboard must be plugged into USB 2.0 ports or they die.)
Problem 3: When inserting the Windows 7 Ultimate 64 disc that I installed from, when I choose the repair option, I get the message "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of Windows."
This is the only Windows disc I have...it is most definitely the one I used to install this OS. WTF, Microsoft?
The only other option I have is to reinstall Windows again with no other drives connected. I just did that a month ago, and it seriously took me about 2 weeks to get everything up and running again exactly how I want it. This is beginning to be more of a problem than the $40-$50 I'd get by selling the old hard drive is worth.
