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!!!!!
I Found the answer in Computer hope. If a bootable disk does not boot keep holding the key down until it does.
