Windows 7: Computer booting

Computer booting

I just built a new computer and when it boots it boots to a dos screen saying "no device found" Press F1 to continue. So I press F1 and it boots into Windows. When I get an update that requires a re-boot and I sit at my computer in the morning I have to press F1 so I'm wondering how to fix this?

Check your boot order in BIOS.

It sounds like it is trying to boot from another drive before the hard disk. Test by setting the boot order to Hard Drive first.

If it is set to boot CD/DVD first and you have a non-bootable disk in the drive, that might do it too.

I had the same problem with my old Mobo, it was checking for an IDE HDD and asked me to press F1 to continue, have a look in your bios for an option "wait for F1 if error", if you know its ok to continue booting diable this setting and it will not require you to press it.
