Just got my new cyberpowerpc and when i started it up it took me to bios settings page and i didn't get any window since i already purchased windows 8 and have it. Since i was stuck on bios pari thought it was because there was no windows on it so i went to open cd drive but it wouldn't open and i see inside no cables connected and I'm not good with cables and pcs if anyone can guide me through it or knows a way on how to get by bios and directly to window without the disc
Thanks

The CD drive isn't connected? Professional assembly from Cyberpower strikes again!!

It looks something like this?


You need a power cable from the PSU (the larger one) and a data cable from the motherboard.
Anything like that hanging loose in there?

It looks a little bit like this. You have to get the "L" part in the right way.

Notice the shape of the plug / receptacle ... it s "L" shaped make sure you have the short side of the L in the right direction

Assuming everything else in there is properly connected, yes, you need to install the OS.

Given the fail to connect the CD, I would not assume everything IS connected properly.

If you have a valid Win 10 license, go for that.
