Hello all. Looking for a little help.
I have an Asus desktop computer that started blue screening after a windows update this morning. I rebooted in safe mode and it attempted to revert back before the updates. However, it froze. I let it sit for hours before turning it off via the power button. Now when I turn it on, after the windows loading screen I just get a black screen. Nothing there but my mouse pointer.
I ran a windows repair disk and all options came back with no problems. So, I decided to do a reinstall. I downloaded a windows install on another computer and put it on a USB flash drive with the windows 7 USB DVD tool to make the drive bootable with the .iso file.
My issue is that I cannot get my PC to boot from USB. I went into my bios options and the only boot options are hard drive, cd rom, and removable disk. I moved removable disk to the top of the list and it still just loads to my hard drive and goes to a black screen. I then disabled boot from HD and CD rom and left only removable disk. I get "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device."
Any suggestions on how to get it to boot? Or another method of reinstalling windows???
