Windows 7: No Boot Disk on Restart

Windows 7
No Boot Disk on Restart

Hi - Can anyone help? I have just upgraded from Vista to 7. Everything is working fine except when I restart. The system goes thru the post routine and then fails to find the boot disk.
The only way round this is to turn the PC off completely ad then switch back on. Everything then works fine.I had no such problem with Vista.
Any ideas would be gratfully received.
