Getting "CD Rom Boot Priority No Medium" error, but still able to boot
I'm a new poster in this forum. I just got a boot error today that I haven't been able to resolve by myself, so I thought I should get some help.
I'm currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. I have two hard drives in this PC. One is an Intel SSD (on which my Windows 7 is installed and is the active partition), and a 1TB hard drive. This computer has been up and running for 1 1/2 years now without any issue.
Yesterday I updated Norton and ran its Registry Cleaner and might have started this problem.
So the problem is when I boot my computer, every thing is normal until before the Windows 7 logo screen. Prior to today, it just goes there without any issue. But today, I received an error: "CD ROM Boot Priority Error - No medium". I have an Asus motherboard, and it has the F8 option to select boot device. So I reboot my computer, hit F8 and select my SSD, and Windows 7 is able to boot correctly and without any issue. Then I check my BIOS to make sure the boot order is correct and it's set to
But everytime it would display me that error. Yes, I have a workaround by pressing F8 during POST and I'm able to boot to Windows 7. But I'd like to get rid of this error. I ran the Intel diagnostic software on my SSD and the drive is okay and healthy according to it.
Any idea on this one? I appreciate the help!

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.
Probably the easiest way is a system restore to a point in time before you updated Norton.
If that solves the problem you can always update Norton again, but this time don't use the registry cleaner.
Windows 7 does a pretty good job of taking care of business and personally, I think using a registry cleaner is unnecessary and can cause more problems than it solves.

Yup, I did this already. The order is correct on the BIOS screen, however that error message keeps showing up prior to the Windows screen. Thankfully, I can press F8 during the boot process to force my PC to select my SSD drive. Whenever I do this, my computer just boots as normal. But I didn't have to do this prior today.
Not a big deal I suppose if I have to hit F8 every time I boot from now on, but this error message just puzzles me. After researching and looking into it for almost the whole day, I figure maybe someone else might have ran into this in the past and can share on how they fix it.
