Ok, so after trawling plenty of sites to try to find an answer to this I thought I'd come to the experts.
I am getting the "reboot and select proper boot device" message on booting my Windows7 Laptop. It started doing this very randomly and had no reason to do so.
I have done the usual, including fixmbr etc and also reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows 7 (losing all my precious data in the meantime)
So what makes this any different? Well, if I resume to Windows from hibernate or boot from off I get this message however from both these situations, if I press F2 while booting, enter the BIOS and touch NOTHING but F10 to save and reboot it then boots perfectly into a running and happy Windows 7.
Someone please help me before I lose the plot! I'm sure it must be a simple fix.
