    Well, that's quite it, just installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bits that i downloaded from iso hunt (7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULXFRER_EN_DVD.iso) and i did'nt even had time to get problems with authentication because it won't star without the dvd on the drive.

    When i try to start windows widhout the dvd, it ask me to insert a boot disk or boot from elsewhere, but don't let me boot the os that i installed on my HD.

    So every time i want to start my pc, i have to get the windows 7 dvd on the drive and boot it, i don't even have to repair it.

    Tips?

    Did you verify the hash of the ISO file?

    Start over, make sure to wipe old/defective bootsector, eg: wipe the partition with the free killdisk or such

    Found the problem! I just bought this pc, the bios was set to boot from the dvd driver as 1st option. Feeling like like a child here, lucky that i didn't installed all over again.
