win 7 wont boot unless DVD is in drive
Hi guys. Has anyone come across this issue?
We are in the middle of a Win 7 rollout, and some of our Stone Laptops are giving us grief. MR052 laptops with an 80GB SATA drive will accept an installation, but on reboot, give a "missing OS" error. We would normally use WDS to deploy an image. This is working on all other hardware platforms other than these laptops.
I therefore tried to install directly from DVD, but we get the same result.
If the install DVD is in the drive, the OS will boot from the hard drive after timing out on the boot from CD option. I've not got an option in the bios to change the SATA drive status to AHCI. Have tried repair installs, repairing boot sector etc, but have had no joy at all.
Any ideas at all would be most welcome.
