I am trying to install Windows7 Home Premium on a Dell XPS 400 desktop computer. I have installed a brand new hard drive which is recognized in BIOS. I get a message that says "No boot device detected". The DVD device is running with a blinking light and the boot order has "Boot from DVD as the number 1 choice. I have purchased a full edition of Windows 7. There are no markings to indicate that it is only an update. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank You, victor1244
