Ok, i bought this laptop, and planned to put my seagate momentusXT into it. I have it in my old ACER laptop and it works just fine, but when i put it in, the new the motherboard seems to access it for a sec, and then cuts power to it as if it doesnt like that fact that it doesnt match the mobo bios tattoo possibly?

Either way. I planned to just install win7 64 ult on it, But i keep getting a no bootable device error. Even when i have my disk in. I have used this ISO multiple times on this disk and have never had problems.

Anyone know what may be going on? I am getting the hunch its a win8 thing. Since this laptop seemed to be all windows 8 themed. Even the windows key is a win8 logo. Im grasping at straws here, and i need this thing done for work tomorrow.

Any help is appreciated.thumb.gif


EDIT: Answered my own question. I had to disable UEFI in the bios and things took off. tongue.gif

Thought I had did that already.
