I am in need of some help, and I appreciate it in advance.

I am building a new pc:

Asus P8Z77-v Pro
Intel I5 3570k>MSI 660 TI - Twin Frozr III
Corsair TX650 power supply
Seagate Barracuda 1TB Sata
Lite On read write - SATA
Corsair Vengeance 4GBx2

Unit boots up into bios fine -- no problems.

When I boot to disk I get the reboot and select proper boot device error. >
I have ensured the boot order is proper, the DVDRW is first, followed by the hard drive on SATA ports 3 and 1 respectively.
I have forced boot to DVDRW through f8 menu. Still, I am not able to boot to my Windows 8 CD to start installation.
I have removed the battery to reset the bios, and have tried multiple different SATA Ports etc.

I am running bios version 1504.
Everything appears to be detected and functioning properly. Please help. Thanks!

There must be a problem with your boot disc, boot sectors must be missing.

There can also be a problem with your drive. Try using the disc on any other pc or any other bootable disc.
