"the Windows Vista Office Home and Student 2007 installation disk" is not an Operating System. Tell us which Operating System you want to install.
I have just completed the home build of my own computer:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3/S3
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo
HDD: Samsung HD400LD - IDE
Video Card: GeForce 8500GT
CD/DVD: Lite-On Corp - LH-20A1S - SATA (Pwr+Data)
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2032bw (DVI)
PSU: Akasa - AK-P050 FG8
So far these are the only components connected.
All seems OK during BIOS and POST and I have set Bootup to First CDROM, Second HDD, Third Floppy.
My problem is at end of BIOS and all details are on monitor BOOT FROM CD/DVD is indicated, the Windows Vista Office Home and Student 2007 installation disk is active and runs on my CD/DVD drive for 1 minute and slows down eventually stopping. There is no error message on screen, only BOOT FROM CD/DVD: and nothing else.
I have tried changing many enable/disable functions in BIOS with no changes.
I have verified both drives and they run, all fans run, LEDs all active.
There is something I'm missing! Any help appreciated.
