Reboot and select proper boot device on new build?!

I recently built a new PC, and when I go to install windows 7 from a boot disk, it gives me a "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media and press any key". I can get into the bios and everything, it just will not boot into windows setup! Please help!

System specs:
i7 4770k
MSi Z78-G43
Intel 60gb SSD
Crossfire'd Radeon 7850s
8gb Vengance RAM
650W power supply

If you need anymore info, just ask. Anything to help fix the problem!
Also, SSD is brand new with nothing on it and I have it set to boot from the cd drive in the BIOS

If you have the Original copy that would be the best deal

Sometimes bootable disc don't work well have you tried to copy it to usb stick and boot ?

No, it still gives me the same error. It won't even boot from the usb. Could it be a faulty mobo?

Where did you get Windows 7? Is it a store bought disk? Have you set DVD drive to boot first as shown in How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube? "Do you get prompt to Press any Key to boot disk?"

If not try another ISO for your licensed version, burned to disk or written to stick from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 (same for retail) which steps will also help you get and keep a perfect install.

If disk and flash stick written from new ISO with tools provided fail, reset BIOS to defaults, set HDD to boot first, make sure SATA controller is set to AHCI, then try triggering the installer media with the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen? Any response?

The CD is a copy of an original. I'm trying to install windows 7 on a new hard drive, in a newly built computer and it won't go past the 'Reboot and select proper boot device' error. Usb nor dvd works.

Tried that, no luck. I formatted an old hdd and tried using that, but it still won't register it. Do I need to take it somewhere? If so, where?

Welcome THEDARKLORD,
You've built a killer new rig. Posting this in Installation and Setup would have been better place to post for future threads picking the most applicable place is always best. Have you tried unplugging all sata devices but the optical and your target SSD? Then have you set up the SSD as a AHCI drive in the bios?
