so I just got my brand new, first build to turn on.
did all the motherboard bios stuff, made sure the cd drive is the first device to boot from, put in the windows 7 disk, and when I exit out of the bios it comes up with the message,
"Reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"
anybody have an idea as to why its not installing the operating system?
Having the same problem with an asus p6t se mobo with a sata hhd and a sata cd-rom. Posts fine (gets one beep), can see the hd and cd in bios, set the cd to boot priority 1 and I get the same screen as above.?? What else could this be?
Thanks for the help alvin, I'll try listing it as zero, sata6. This is the 2nd optical drive, 1st tried with a lite-on24x, at first, though it was bad, so took it back and got this one. That's when I realized it I was in deeper water. 1st drive was probably ok.
it was a pretty easy fix. I had my hdd cable going into one of the 3 main sata ports and the os wouldnt install. I then unplugged it from there and hooked it up to one of the 6 blue sata ports and for some reason that did the trick.
I am assuming that the p6t se mobo has a related issue, but all my sata port are red, alexttlyrocks, just curious, which sata ports did u hook everything up too, ex cd-rom to sata_, hhd to sata_, etc, maybe the sequence is the same for my mobo even though all the satas are the same color code.
