Hello all,

I recently purchased a computer from CowBoom and it states that it comes with a BIOS sticker located near the battery. When I boot up the computer, I get the following message "press any key to boot from floppy mbr error". I have the product key from underneath but anything I try to press doesn't seem to work.

I tried pressing F2 as soon as the Toshiba symbol pops up but this gives me a blue screen with a large gray box that just gives me info about the computer's SSD, date, time, etc. F12 brought up a small gray box that gave some information about the hard drive and somewhere it states "enter setup" but when I press enter nothing happens. I am in desperate need of some help as this is a birthday gift to give someone in the next few days. Thanks.

Before I saw these responses I went to BestBuy GeekSquad and they told me there is no Operating System installed on this computer that I got from Cowboom. Since there is no optical drive, should I just put a copy of Windows 7 on a USB stick and use that? Will that work when it gives me the "load from floppy" message.
