I have a Sony laptop that I am trying to do a re-format and re-install on. The machine booted normally until I booted with the disk. I get the first error when trying to use a Win 7 disk. The second one when trying to boot normally. I have tried changing bios settings with no luck. Any info would be great. I thank you for your time.
BOOTING WITH STORE PURCHASED W7 DISK.
"Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer."
"This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external usb drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardwre such as a hard drive or cd-rom drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and restart your computer."
It will also say " No boot manager found, press cntrl-alt-delete to restart" or something similar when first starting machine.
