New HDD installed, computer will not boot up from installed CD
My Asus R503U laptop was contaminated by Microsoft by an update, I think a .net update.
The computer went into a continuous repair loop and will not answer any commands.
I replaced the HDD with a new one and I noticed a difference in the connections, it has the SATA slots and a port (possibly power?) that the other did not. I installed it and powered up the computer.
There seems to be a power on problem as the screen flashes Asus and then goes off. When it does come on, I placed the Windows 7 Pro disk in and it sounds like something is wrong as the disk is being scanned. I get a message to reset and select the proper device to boot from or insert the boot CD and press a key.
Nothing happens. the machine appears to not recognize the CD and does not appear to be reading the new HDD. How can I fix this?
