Solved Booting correctly?? Tags: New Build Boot Systems Last response: January 25, 2013 1:26 AM in Systems Share TonyArnold2 January 15, 2013 12:09:21 AM Finally built my first PC... but when I boot it up it gives me the following message: Reboot and select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key What do I do?? Specs are: CPU: Intel i7-3770K GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 RAM: Crucial 2x8GB (16 GB) SSD: Intel 120GB HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB More about : booting correctly TonyArnold2 January 15, 2013 12:21:44 AM I tried inserting the Intel SSD disk and nothing happened. m 0 l cball1311 January 15, 2013 12:33:07 AM First, I would disconnect the HDD from the SATA port on the motherboard. This prevents Windows from creating a system partition on your HDD. Second, make sure the first boot device is your CD-ROM (or flash drive; however you are installing Windows) in the BIOS. m 0 l Related resources HDD not booting correctly into Windows - Forum Windows 8 not booting correctly - Forum System not booting properly or correctly utilizing SSD - Forum New build not booting correctly - Forum Computer stopped booting correctly - Forum Can't find your answer ?

It's called ASROCK UEFI SETUP UTILITY. m 0 l cball1311 January 15, 2013 12:47:21 AM Yep. Now, in the BIOS, go to Boot, at the top, and select your CD ROM drive as the first device. Once Windows restart once (during installation), you can set this to the SSD. m 0 l TonyArnold2 January 15, 2013 1:01:11 AM I did that, and it's asking for my product key... I have no idea where it is. I bought Windows 8 OEM 64 bit just yesterday m 0 l TonyArnold2 January 15, 2013 1:08:12 AM Found it. It's asking me to boot upgrade or custom (install windows and keep files, settings, and applications) or (install windows only) m 0 l Best solution cball1311 January 15, 2013 1:49:16 AM I would install windows only.
