I just got the remaining parts to put together my upgraded PC. Heres the specs for starters:

Mobo: ASRock z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3
Memory: G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W
HD: Western Digital Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB 10000 RPM

I put it all together and booted it up and got the black screen that reads: "Reboot and Select proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in Selected Boot device and press any key." I already have Windows 7 64bit installed from previous config, so I went into my Bios and checked to make sure it was booting from the WD Raptor which it was. Right now I'm putting the ASRock installation CD on a USB drive since I don't have a Optical drive on my PC (using my laptop right now), but I don't think that will fix it. The biggest USB drive I have is a 8GB drive so I don't know what I can do right now to fix this... Any thoughts?

Have you tried booting without the flash drive plugged in? So, is the HDD from a previous system?

Ensure that the boot order is correct, as in booting off of the HDD. You may need to reinstall your OS to make sure all drivers are correct. :bounce:
