Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, AMD 1600/ 8 GB
I just built a new PC from scratch and it is having an issue trying to load Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium. I think it loaded all of the OS but after removing the Windows disc and rebooting, it is saying that it is missing the BootMgr and to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to restart. I tried to get the Mobo drivers to install but it will not boot from the mobo disc, as it claims the command.com /p /265 line is wrong.

Here are the specs for computer as I know them:
Case- Roswill Thor version 2
Mobo- ASROCK Fatal1ty 990FX Pro
RAM- 8GB DDR3
Graphics- Unsure at this moment

On the motherboard, there is a LED unit called Dr. Debug. This gives a code number by which to diagnose the issue the board is having. This current issue is showing

Try just this boot order:
1- ASUS DVDRW
2- SATA Hard Drive

Test memory with a bootable disk of Memtest and let it run through all tests. Any errors are cause to reject the memory.

Boot into your BIOS set up. Make sure that your hard drive is selected as bootable and that your hard drive is second in the boot order just after your CD/DVD drive.

Your driver disk is not bootable and drivers cannot load until Windows is running, but all of your drivers for SATA and IDE (PATA) drives are part of your BIOS (PCIe drives may need specific BIOS settings in order to run).

If it still does not boot then try a Start Up Repair from your Windows 7 DVD.

Note: For someone who just built your system, your specs are extremely lacking. For more info, please include ALL specs.

"I think it loaded all of the OS"

You think? Did you go thru the setup process or not? Did you run thru all these screens?:

"I tried to get the Mobo drivers to install but it will not boot from the mobo disc"

Of course not. Drivers discs aren't bootable. You have to boot into Windows then install the drivers.

OK, I actually got this system after someone else tried to build it. They assembled the hardware but had issues that I have already corrected.
I knew that driver discs are not bootable and should have remembered that.

Currently, the boot sequence is set like this:
1) Built in EFI
2) ASUS DRW-24B1ST
3) SATA ST2000DL003-9VT166
4)UEFI: ASUS DRW-24B1ST

When I loaded the OS, it got to the point where it required a reboot and it would not start the OS. If I try to run the OS disk again, it shows the progress bar then it freezes on the Loading Windows screen.

Here are the specifics of the system:

Case- Roswill Thor V2
Mobo- Asrock Fatal1ty 990fx Pro
CPU- AMD FX 4100 Quad-Core with a speed of 3600 MHz
RAM- 8 GB (2 x 4096 in slots A1 and B1, both of which are red)
Graphics Card- Gigabyte 64 GTX 650
HDD- SATA 2TB Seagate Barracuda
DvD-RW- ASUS DRW-24B1ST (Not sure about the specifics on this product)

Both suggestions were correct. There was a bad memory module and the boot order worked perfectly. I did not have the MemTest disc so I just removed one of the modules and the OS installed no problem. I then put the module back in and it froze trying to load the OS. Next I removed the good one and replaced it with the bad one, which again froze loading the OS. Thus it was a issue with the memory.

I am curious about this case though. There does not seem to be a reset capability and tapping the start button does nothing. Any suggestions?
