Pressed power button during Windows 7 install please help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so like the title states, my buddy is building the rig for the first time. He did everything right cept that he accidentally pressed the power button in the middle of the Windows 7 install.

when he powers up the computer it says that it will complete the install after it restarts but ends up not doing it.

it loads from the hard drive even though boot priority is the optical drive,

any help would be appreciate, this is my first post but i've been trolling forums for awhile whenever help and look at cool rig pictures smile.gif

Reboot to the Windows 7 disc and wipe the partition, start over.

If you can't, there should be an option for "boot menu" while its starting in POST or in the BIOS it might have "force boot option."
