Weird Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device Error

Last response: in Windows 8

Hello. I've searched through the forums with this same error, but it seems my problem is a little more unique.

I'm currently on a fairly new ASUS N550JV-DB71, running Windows 8. I'm also using a 240GB Intel 530 Series SSD as the primary drive.

---

The problem is, every time I boot this machine, I get the "Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device" error. But when I reboot after this message, it will start up correctly to Windows.

Then, when I shut down, the next time I boot up, the error will appear again until I reboot it (which will then correctly start up).

It seems that this will always happen if I shut down. But if I were to restart, it will boot normally.

---

I've ran diagnostic scans on my SSD and there doesn't seem to be any errors. Everything seems to be fine (I'm currently on this system right now), it's just this little annoying error. I went for an SSD for a faster boot but having to essentially boot it twice is kinda counter-intuitive.

Any suggestions/help for this issue would be greatly appreciated! :)

Try disabling Fast Startup in Power Options/System Settings (Need to select 'Change settings that are currently unavailable')
You don't need it anyway with an SSD, and the hiberfile takes up around 2.5 Gb precious SSD space...

Wow! Worked like a charm! I was half expecting it to not work because it was such a quick and easy solution.

Thank you very much sir!
