Getting "reboot and select proper boot device" error on startup
Hello, Ive recently been getting this message and I cant seem to solve it.
I read a few topics and solutions, but I can't seem to grasp it. I am rather greatly unfamiliar with pc tech know how.
I tried putting the OS disk and restart, but I get the same error, and I dont know how to reinstall the OS. I can manage to get to the BIOS, if thats what its called, but Im not sure what to do from there. I tried setting priority to CD Rom but still, same error.
Im considering visiting the tech shop that built me the PC but if I can fix this at home I would give it a shot.
Im running Windows 7 Home premium 64bit.

Next unplug any other HD's or peripherals, check that the Windows 7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition are marked Active: Mark Partition Active - Option Two.
This can be done with a visual map using free Partition Wizard bootable CD, to also post back a camera snap of the drive map and listings. How to Set Active/Inactive partition -Partition Wizard Video Help.
then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times.
If this fails you'll need to start at the top to work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start since Windows 7 may not repair unless it's first disinfected, or may require special steps if its corrupted.
If you lack a Windows 7 disk it's provided in Step 5.
