Hi

When I am booting my computer Windows cannot find my boot drive and prompt me to insert boot media. This happens every second time I try to boot my system, when I restart my computer it loads in Windows without any problems. Since the problem isn't random I expect it being a software problem. I hope you can help me.

My specs are:
CPU: Intel i3 - 2120
CPU cooler: Intel std.
MotherBoard: ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe
Memory: 2x Kingston KVR1333D3S9 4GB
GPU: Intel onboard
HDD: OCZ Agility 3 120 GB SSD
Case: LianLi PC-Q09F w. internal 150W PSU
DVD: LiteOn DS-8A5S slim
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64 OEM

First try the obvious, re-seat your hard drive connectors, both data and power. If the problem persists, check out a bios reset or update.
