fail out of the box

Win7 but does not see the UNO. Unknown device shown in list of devices.

Install Wizard did not launch.

I tried another USB cable with same results and pressed the Reset

Try right-clicking on the 'unknown device' in Device Manager. Select 'Update Driver'.

That should bring up the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the same instructions as for the "Found New Hardware Wizard" to install the Windows Driver

And can you select it as a COM port in the IDE?

This may be some help, from the Arduino website. It's the installation guide :)
