Bit of a Newb but I have built a PC before and had no issues. I have no idea what is going wrong. I have spent hours going through community forums and cannot seem to find an answer.
To tell you about the hardware,
Motherboard Asrock B75M
CPU Intel G860
500GB WD Hard Drive
I have the computer firing up and going into the bios. From there the problem stems.
I didn't originally have an optic drive, i just wanted to boot from a thumb drive which didn't work.
I then burned windows files to DVD, tried to boot that from an external bluray drive, that didn't work.
I then went out and purchased a DVD drive, tried to boot from that, that didnt work.
I have defaulted in bios to boot from all of the different options I went through and I still keep getting an error message:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device
Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.
I tried the drivers disc that came along with the motherboard which makes no sense to me, it keeps asking me
Do you want to generate Serial ATA driver diskette [Y/N]
I have exhausted all avenues, i tried to find information from Asrock, maybe there is a problem with the hardware, but it fires up to bios... I just can't get past bios.
