My question is really about hard drives, but that wasn't an option for some reason.

I keep getting a "Reboot and Select Proper boot device" message upon powering on my Desktop.

A similar question / problem was posed here:

, but I don't understand jaquith's answer.

Please Advise.

I should mention that there is currently NO OS INSTALLED.

Well you should install OS. No OS no boot.

This problem is preventing me from installing an OS, there is no recognition of boot drivers either, the boot over ride only recognizes the optical drive sometimes.

Reset your BIOS, check you power and sata cables. In BIOS select as boot device dvd to be first, hdd second.

I've now tried this several times and even gone so far as to switch out the cables I'm using - no luck

In my BIOS it gives me 'boot mode' options. They are: UEFI and LEGACY + UEFI. Could this be a part of the problem?
