If you could provide more details on what you're trying to do and with what hardware, we could help more.

But it sounds like you have more than one drive set as active, and the bios can't handle that. Unplug all hard drives and thumb drives except the hard drive you're trying to install to and whatever you're installing from.

I have this issue, just do this:

Go into your boot order for your drives, and make sure your boot disk is first, save, exit.

Should now boot for you.

But since you cannot install 7, go click F12 and select your CD drive and boot from it, then install.

Make sure your boot drive is first in boot order or it will hang at DMI.

Clear CMOS and disable any non-essential features.

Figured it I had SATA POWER connected but not the SATA data to the DVD drive on the way now! Sorry for the false alarm
