I tried to start up my computer the other day, but ran into the "insert boot media in selected boot device" problem.
I currently have a Intel 520 120GB SSD as my primary drive.
I did what anybody would do, opened up my PC and checked the connections and checked BIOS, and still nothing, still the same "insert boot media in selected boot device" message. I even tried clearing the CMOS.
Even when I checked for errors from another PC, there were none of those to be found.
I changed the SATA connections, hoping that might work - both the cable and the port, still no luck. I even tried booting it via another computer as the primary drive, as I have had success with that before, but I get the same error message.
I am still able to access the data from another computer, when the drive is plugged in along side another boot drive, but am unable to reach Windows with it.
Normally I wouldn't care, I can access the data, just back it up and start all over again, but I have a encryption key/certificate that I need to access, which I of course didn't backup, fearing somebody may access it.
Is there anything anybody thinks that I could do? I find it odd that there is no errors found, and that I am able to access the data, but it will not boot at all - even to a repair screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
