So I put together a new build. I go too boot up and install win7, but it says, "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected." I then turned if off made sure all of my sata cables are connected properly and they seemed to be. Tried again, same thing. I reburned win7 on to a new dvd and tried that, still did not work. In bios I checked to make sure the dvd and hdd were coming up and they seemed to be, however the names were a little wierd(not sure what they should be called). I checked the boot order to ensure the DVD-rw was selected and put it at priority 1. I am running out of ideas. Can anyone help me trouble shoot this. It would be a huge help
Other PCs boot from the same Windows 7 DVD? If so and your PC is configured to boot from the DVD-RW before the hard disk, then it may be defective. What motherboard and SATA controller? What are the names that look a little weird?
