Hello, I am trying to install windows 7 via a USB stick onto a laptop that I had to replace a HDD, I downloaded the OEM of windows 7 professional and used the program Rufus to put the iso program onto the usb to make it bootable. I tested it out using MobaLiveCD program on my current pc and it does load up the windows installation.
Problem is, it will not start the windows installation setting. it will just say this when i turn it on:
Boot Device Not Found
Please install an operating system on your hard disk.

This laptop is a 360 hp Spectre, it has 4GB ram, and i installed a 500GB HDD as the old one failed. I ran the long 2 - 3 hour test of my hard drive test to make sure it is working and everything passed.
What do i need to do?
