Hi, i just built my new computer yesterday and went to start downloading all the disks today.. But when i boot up my computer it comes up with:

"Reboot and select proper boot device, Or insert boot media into selected boot device and press a key"

I have't downloaded an operating system yet, but im inserting my Motherboard Disk which contains Windows XP, which i need in order to download my Windows 7 Ultimate. (Upgrade)

I have tried my other disk which contains Linux or what ever it's called..

Anyone able to help please?

Check your boot order in the bios. I disable all references to a floppy drive. I also only connect one hardrive when loading windows; connect your secondary hardrive after windows loads and let windows configure it as a secondary device. This is especially effective with ssd's.

I only have one Hard Drive and there is only one boot option which is set to my only hard drive. :/
