Hi,
priorites for booting is OK but I assume the problem is with bootable disc. Maybe it's damage or it's not bootable at all.
good luck.

How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

My pc wont boot. All i get is " reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"


This can happen if you have non-bootable media in the default boot device (i.e., you have a CD in the CD/DVD drive and that drive is listed as the default boot device in your system's BIOS). More often (on newer systems), a failed hard drive will also produce this message.

If you have bootable media (the Windows install CD is one example), you should try to boot to it and see if you can read your hard drive.

Gateway laptop message PXE-E61 test failure, check cable PXE-MOF:exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. No bootable device


Your system is trying to boot from someplace other than your hard drive (Probably a LAN).

Turn the computer off and restart it, but watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Select the Hard Drive as your boot device and see if it boots up. If so, you will have to do this everytime you boot up, but you can make it a permanent change so that you won't have to do this each time you boot.

To make it a permanent change, turn the laptop off, then turn it on and watch the screen to see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence or Boot Order and go to it and make the ddc/cd drive as your 1st and the Hard Drive as 2nd. This is the normal boot order but you have to make sure nothing is in the dvd/cd drive when you boot (such as a music cd or a movie dvd) otherwise the system will try to boot from it and you will get a error message. This also allows you to fix your computer in case it can't boot from the hard drive for some reason. Save the changes and exit out of the Bios or System Setup and reboot.

I get the following error message: Check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


You computer is trying to boot from somewhere other than your hard drive.

Turn the computer off and when you turn it on, watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and try it again. Select the Hard Drive as your bood device and let it boot up. This is a temporary change only good for this boot cycle. You need to make a permanent change to the boot order.

To make a permanent change to the boot order or sequence, turn the computer off and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or you will have to restart and try again. Once you get into the BIOS or System Setup tab over to change the boot order or boot sequence. Normally the best sequence is to have the DvD/CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. Just make sure when you boot the computer that you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you will get an error message if it tries to boot from it. You want this sequence just incase you have problems with your hard drive, then you can put a repair disc or system disc in the dvd/cd drive and it will boot from it so you can try to fix the problem.

My asus desktop with windows vista will not start up. I keep getting a black screen that tells me reboot and select proper boot device or insert media? What is wrong?


It means your system is trying to boot from somewhere other than your hard drive. Make sure you don't have a CD in the CD/DvD Drive. Also when you boot your system pay close attention to which key it says you can hit to change the boot sequence or boot order and which key it says you can select to go into the Bios or Setup. Boot the system the go into the BIOS or Setup. Go to the tab that allows you to select your boot order. Make sure your Hard Drive is selected as the first boot device. Try rebooting after saving and making this change.

its basically telling you that your master hard drive with O/S installation cannot be found in the booting system...Check if your master HD is not corrupted and see if your O/S still exist or maybe wiped out..
