    "Reboot and Select proper Boot device" with only 1 data drive


    So a while ago my computer crashed and I wasn't sure what it was so I tried many things because I wasn't getting any BIOS beeps so I thought it was the motherboard but long story short it's the graphics card, so I've replaced that with my old one for now. But since I took out so many parts so many times I keep getting the

    "Reboot and Select proper Boot device" error.
    I have a Motherboards - P8P67 LE - ASUS

    And I've set the SSD to the primary boot, I've tried to directly boot it via BIOS but they both still give the same result, I've put the Win7 disk in and done a repair but still, no change.

    Since my OS is installed to my SSD, is there a chance it could have corrupted the files or the actual drive when the computer crashed? From what I heard SSD's seem to be a bit fragile.

    Any help or recommendations would greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    How many times have you tried startup repair ?

    It may take 3 attempts.

    You'll also need to confirm that the 100mb System Reserved (preferred if you have it) or C is Partition Marked Active before the repairs will work. Unplug all other drives and peripherals.

    If this fails start at the top of the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

    When you get to the steps involving Partition Wizard boot disk, post back if you can a camera shot of PW drive map showing all listings columns. This will tell us a lot.
