Hi Charles,

 

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

 

As per the issue description, it looks like the computer unable to boot unless use Windows 7 installation disc.

 

There could be a possibility that the boot priority has been changes to CD/DVD drive instead of Hard Disk.

 

Follow the steps mentioned below to set the Hard Disk as the first boot priority from Windows Recovery Environment:

 

a.        After performing hard reset, press the key F 12

b.       This will take you to the Boot Priority menu

c.        In Boot Priority menu, select the Hard Disk

d.       Set Hard Disk as the first boot sequence and check if that does the trick.

 

Hope this helps and let us know if you need further assistance related to Windows. We will be glad to help.

Try this:
1. Set your BIOS to use the DVD drive as the primary boot device.
2. Boot with a Windows Repair CD. 
3. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …" appears.
4. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.
5. Select an Operating System, then click Next. You are now in Repair Mode.
6. Click Repair your computer.
7. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next. 
8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.
