Windows 7: no bootable device- insert disk and press any key

01 Oct 2012   #11

windows 7 32 bit build 7600

Have you tried already changing the 'priority' on your BIOS? just dont change anything except for that in BIOS because you might brick the system. Just change the CD/DVD drive as the first boot priority and then save and restart. Insert the installation disc of your OS and now is should boot to your disc. Do not re-install the system yet, but try to choose the 'repair' and try the tutorial i have posted above using MS-DOS (command prompt).
