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.

My Dell Windows 7 laptop won't boot?


Press the Delete key during start up, to enter its bios settings window. At boot sequence selection, select CD ROM as first boot device, Hard disc to second boot device, and deselect all other boot devices. Means, there should be only CD ROM and Hard disc as boot devices, as said above, in sequence. Select 'Save and reboot' at the bios option, the computer will restart with hard disc; provided there is no CD at CD ROM. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

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.

Installed power supply and recived : Reboot and Select proper Boot device


A couple things to check first, make sure there's no floppy disc/cd in the drives, and if you are comfortable with computers, you can enter the boot setup of your BIOS, and check to see that your hard drive is listed as the primary boot device.
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press usually the Delete or F2 Key to enter set up this will vary depending on your computers bios.
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press ENTER to check if its set to boot from your hard drive. The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?

IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ? If for any reason you have changed a setting in bios and you are unsure of it you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart .
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Or there is a connection problem such as a bad cable
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ribbon ide this will be the first to fail. Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty computers need power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error Hope this helps.

Selected boot device is not available


What are you trying to boot from? It sounds like you selected something other than your hard drive.

When you power on the computer take note of which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence and hit that key. This is a one time change that will get you booted up. You should select your Hard Drive to boot from.

To make the change permanent you will have to get into you Bios or System Setup. Reboot the computer and notice what key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. When it opens up, hit the tab that lets you change the boot sequence or boot order then save it and exit out. Normally you want the DvD/CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. This way if your system has problems you can insert a repair disk or operating system disk to fix it in the drive. The only drawback is that you need to make sure nothing is in the CD/DvD drive when you boot up (such as a music cd or movie dvd) or you will get a message telling you that it can't boot from the device.

If you like, you could just make the Hard Drive as your first boot device.

What can I do to fix this problem, my gr 500 is telling me to reboot and select proper device or insert boot media in selected boot device


You need to go into your Bios or System Setup and change the boot order or boot sequence. It sounds like you might be trying to boot from a Network or Lan. It could be that you are trying to boot from the CD drive but instead of having a operating system disc in the drive you might have a movie or music cd in the drive.

Reboot the computer and notice what key the screen says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and hit that key. Change your boot order or boot sequence. The best sequence is to have the CD Drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. Changing this in the bios or system setup will make the change permanent. Just make sure when you boot the computer that nothing is in the CD drive unless you have a repair disc or operating system disc in it.

You could make a temporary change but then you will have to change it every time you boot. If you notice the screen when you boot it also gives you the key to hit to change the boot order or boot sequence. This will allow you to change it just for this time that you are booting.

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.

Os not found message appearing on the screen


Can you get in to your bios setup screen? If yes, then check that your hard drive is on the boot order list.

Your boot order list should be:

CD/DVD
hard drive
other (different bios have different options here)

If your boot order doesn't show your hard drive or the proper drive if you have more than one, change it to the proper drive.
