Windows 7: MBR error 1 press any key to boot from floppy

MBR error 1 press any key to boot from floppy

Hi, I installed a Seagate 4TB hdd last week adding to the 2TB WD & partitioned it into two drives. I used Seagate DiscWizard to install it. I didn't move files until yesterday onto the new drive & all seem to go well. It wasn't until this morning when I turned the Pc & got the message (MBR error 1 press any key to boot from floppy). So, I restarted the Pc several times trying to get into the bios, but to no avail. I then disconnected the Hdd & restarted again & all was good. I'm running Windows 7 home premium 64bit with a Gigabyte ga-h55m-ud2h motherboard & Quad core Intel i7 870. Can someone please help me with this problem.

Hi and welcome.

It seems like the boot order in the BIOS has the new drive first. How have you tried getting into the BIOS? Tapping on DEL during boot?
Once in the BIOS, you can just change the boot order.

You could also try swapping the SATA cables on the two drives. Putting the drive with the operating system on SATA2_0
