Re: Reboot and Select proper Boot device
Hi Slash73, can you check your bios for:
And hard drive config, I have seen this on a XP Pro PC, The HD the OS was loaded onto was set as "Secondry Master", with a primary hard drive installed.
The PC doesn't have a card reader built in? I have heard of a PC attempting to boot to a camera "flash card" which was left in the reader and forgotton. ( just like the "old day" with the floppy left in the drive. I think that if the PC ran alright for the 1st week that this issue is in someway hard ware related (Not that I have faith in Vista)

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.
What is the error message? The CPUs will not overclock on there own, that requires configuration. Some components when not installed properly with cause the computer to boot to a black screen and the fan to speed up dramatically. I've seen memory sticks and display port cables cause this. Check all your hardware and make sure everything is seated properly.
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..
The easy way is to do this via the vista os CD or an old xp one.
You will need to reboot your PC as it starts up look out for 'boot options' and select boot from your cd drive. If you do not get this option then please reboot again then go into boot options and select your CD rom or DVD rom to be your boot device.
For both options after making the change and your have your CD i, you will be given to option to press any key.
make sure you select to reinstall windows, at this point you will be be given the option to format your hard drive.
If you need more info or the PC is a laptop with out a CD Rom / DVD rom let me know and I will go over other ways to format your hard drive.

In your BIOS use IDE(IDE mode). This lets the Sata drive run without any special
drivers. You loose hot swap and native command queuing. ACHI(Advanced Controller Host Interface) is for things like hot swap and native command queuing(more useful for servers). If
you plan to hot swap drives later then ACHI is a good option, but
requires a driver on windows install. You may be able to change it
after windows is installed.
