Dell D620 and Windows 7 Pro install - (reads "Missing Operating System" - No Dell Disks (stupid idea w/o them)

I knew this was going to happen sometime...

Was running Windows XP Pro upgraded to Windows 7  Pro Full Installation

Dell Latitude D620

Intel Core(TM)2 Duo Processor

3072 MB Memory   (533 MHz) Dual Memory Channel DDR2 SDRAM

500GB HDD

Dell Battery Module (Dual Battery interchangeable with Dell CD/CD-RW Drive) 

I cannot install the Windows 7 Pro (Brand new - never used) onto my Dell Latitude D620.

Booting gives me the message "No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot. F2 for setup utility. Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics."

F1 results in same identical message.

F2 results in "Missing Operating System"

Its f12 you should select. Then you should select boot from cd/dvd. Note if installing the 64 bit version that the processor is this model may be incompatible depending on the processor variant installed. For full instructions and drivers see my Windows Reinstallation Guide (link in my signature).
