Just built my computer, first time. Getting an error after power up, "reboot and select proper boot device." I think I wired it wrong (ahh >_< so many cables) or hard drive not working? Dunno. Maybe I need to fix settings in bios. If anyone has any tips, advice or solutions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Make sure you know where the windows OS is(HDD or CD etc), then change the boot order in BIOS. If you are instakking Windows, set it as CD first, install OS, then reboot, enter BIOS, change to HDD, then reboot.
