This should start an installation of Windows, thus there will be an OS to boot.
The problem with that is, when the HD is put into the computer for no apparent reason, the CD/DVD drive stops completely, wont open even. When the HDD isnt connected to the computer, it works fine and can run the CD/DVD drive.
