Missing Operating System with Fresh Install

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm on a EVGA 780i SLI mobo.. all the cables and everything are connected right, it posts.. however even though i've disabled 'floppy' and made the first boot device the CDROM.. it says:

Boot from CD:
Missing operating system

any ideas? i've looked for a solution on googles with no avail lol

this is for a CLEAN install alot of other reported problems are with windows already installed and seeing the message

just did that but it doesn't do anything.. now it just says "Missing operating system"

and yes the windows disk is legit, it's burned from my university's msdnaa and i've used the same one to install it on like 5 other computers so i'm a little puzzled haha
