Centros 7 Boot after new install

Please bear with me I am new to Linux distos and the installation of them.

I have installed Centos 7 and all went well from a bootable USB. However when I reboot I get Attempting to boot from hard drive (c:) and then it starts to try and boot from NIC.

I understand this may be the MBR missing on the C drive (maybe) but i am a windows man, any help would be appreciated in getting this booting properly from the C:

Thanks in Advance

Do the installation again and keep a note of the displays you get during the installation. Personally I don't use CentOS so I'm not current on it's installer, but there is probably an option somewhere where you select what device to install the boot loader to. When you get that option make sure you select the correct device (the disk you are installing CentOS to), and not the USB stick you are installing from.

Is there a way of manually installing the grub/mbr? In windows there are a few ways to change the boot options.

Thanks

At the moment I'm not aware of a simple way. As the installation is fast anyway that would be easier and faster anyway.

How do I reinstall? If the USB is in it boots up and doesnt start the installation

Recreate the USB stick from the iso. As I suspect you probably wrote grub to the USB stick rather than the internal disk, and that has also changed the USB stick.
