Default Need help loading os into new system.

I just finished assembling my new comp last night, and now have no clue what to do next. I presume I need to configure the BIOS settings, but aside from setting the clock and date I don't know what to do next.

BIOS settings can be left at default. If later, you feel that you need to change some settings, then you can do so.

Do you have the installation CD of any OS? If yes, then put that CD in your optical drive, and follow the instructions, to install the OS on your hard drive.

I would suggest getting local help for this, from your friend, or relative, because the whole process would be quite difficult to explain here.

Hi Todd-
If you need restore your motherboard BIOS to its default settings remove the motherboard battery for a few minutes, then reinstall the battery. You should be able to make your optical drive bootable by changing the bios setting, but most default setting should have the optical drive as bootable.
Insert the Win 7 installation disk into your optical drive as Anupam suggested to begin the installation process. Win 7 should install device drivers or ask you to insert a drivers cd if one came with your box. You can always update those drivers from the manufacturer's website.
