Hello,
I am having a problem with my computer,each time I turn the system on it says "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media" I then F12 and change the boot device to the hard drive and it starts, but then every time I restart the computer I have to go through the same process. How do I fix this?

Go into the computer's BIOS and reset the boot order of the drives, i.e. your primary drive as #2 after the CD/DVD ROM.

Double post. He could disable the Floppy disk controller so the machine is not searching for it to initiate during boot and save time with boot up. he could also set the first boot device to the hard drive the OS is on and save additional boot up time. But first he has to figure out how to do all this in BIOS.
