    Hi guys, I'm currently in the process of instaling windows 7 into my HP Pavilion Slimline s5120y. I finished with the HP Upgrade assistant and the next step is to insert the other CD the UPgrade Media CD but now my computer DOES NOT recognizes my disk drive so I'm unable to read any CD's

    Any ways I could fix this?

    Thank you

    Does your HP have a DVD reader?? If it can see a CD but not an upgrade DVD, having only a CD read/write could be the cause. Try inserting your Upgrade Assistant CD and see if it sees it again. If so, you could use an external DVD drive or a flash drive (bootable) to install Win7.
