I'd be very appreciative if you would help me out. I'm running into an error that I can't seem to resolve:
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media"
I recently updated/rebuilt my machine and am trying to install Windows 7 on it. I keep running into the Reboot error. I searched the Tom boards as well as some others but can't find anything that quite fits what I'm seeing.
Steps taken thus far:
Verified that Windows 7 disk worked (tested on another computer) - Reboot error
Mobo, 1 stick of RAM (tried both), CD Drive, HDD only - Reboot error
Cleared CMOS - Reboot error
Different SATA ports and SATA cords - Reboot error
Downloaded Ubuntu iso onto USB and set USB as first boot priority - Reboot error
Through these steps I have confirmed that the boot priority is set as appropriate for whatever test I was running. Additionally, the motherboard is recognizing all of the hardware.
Flash latest BIOS and try again.
I picked up a new motherboard, case, RAM, and processor. The optical drive, hard drives, and power supply were salvaged from my old machine. I formatted the Seagate hard drive and was planning on doing a fresh install of Windows to it on the new machine. I have a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium.
