Hello and Welcome -
Can I first ask you, do you know who installed Windows7 on the computer ??
Did your friend have a Windows7 CD / DVD to install Windows7, or have you not yet asked them ??
>> Also it will try to read a flash drive prior to anything else. << Sounds like the BIOS has been set to read that drive letter first -
>> F12 works and lets me select where I want to boot from << Where have you selected the computer to boot from, as you do not mention this ??
Most Dell precision M 4400 models seem to have been released with XP or Vista as their Operating System, and it is hard to find one with Win7 as installed
Thank You -
