• My disk is only allowing me to reinstall on a bootable drive.  Why don't I get the black and white message after restarting the computer that I need to hit any key to open up the disk so that I can install on a data only disk.  My computer does not recognize my Windows 7 auto function.  My boot sequence(CDROM and HD) has been changed several times without correcting the problem. I had a code 39 problem earlier indicated in contol panel and corrected the problem only part way.

    In the past I have had two ways to install windows 7 since Oct 08.  Something is wrong with my computer.  Please help!!!!!;EN-US;314060  used . Nero uninstalled.  Belarc information available with different format. Windows 7 Home Premium (build 7600) 32 bit.
