I also installed a new video card (PCI-e) and an additional 4 gigs of RAM.
When I boot on the new hard drive with the windows cd in the CD-ROM, I get the following:
Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.
I have used this Windows 7 CD last week so there shouldn't be any problems with it.
When I look in BIOS, I can see both my new SATA hard drive and my IDE CD-ROM, CD-ROM has boot priority.
I can put in an old corrupted hard drive running windows 7 and it will boot into windows, then go to Computer, but I don't see the IDE CD-ROM drive.
So, BIOS detects my CD-ROM but the OS doesn't seem to.
