New desktop pc need help booting
So I just finished building my new desktop.
I used some of the old parts I have, as well as ordered new parts.
One of the old parts I used was my old IDE HDD and IDE CD-ROM.
There only being 1 place to put the IDE cable on the motherboard, I have to use my HDD as Master and Slave. No problem there, I actually had the same problem with my old desktop and it worked just fine.
The old IDE HDD had Windows 7 installed on it, so I was hoping for, when I hooked it up to the new computer, I wouldn't have to do much, but to my despair, no windows was found on it. And it told me to insert boot media. So I *cough* downloaded *cough* bootable windows 7 and burned it onto a DVD as well as put it on a USB stick. When I insert the CD, it acts like nothing happened, like if I didn't even put a CD into it.
When I insert the USB stick, something happens, the "insert boot media" text doesn't appear, instead theres just a "-" and then it jumps down one line and nothing happens. Also, once I insert the USB, I am no longer able to detect the HDD in the BIOS :/
What to do? o_o Get new HDD? DVD-ROM? or?
