Select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Now, after attempting to reboot I am greeted by an error message. I see the Asus logo, which isthen followed by a flashing underscore (_) then the error message appears.
The message reads:
"reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."
I have checked my boot priority in BIOS and 1st is my HDD and 2nd is ATAPI CDROM.
I installed multiple programs on my flash drive but nothing worked.
The closest I got to anything working was when I (illegally) downloaded a windows 7 iso image thingy onto my flash drive but it seems you need an OS system to install an OS system or something anyway that didn't work.
I'm going on vacation soon and I need my netbook!
my problem is the laptop will not boot evey time, it makes the usual noises but nothing happens, the on third or fourth try it will boot and run perfectly all day. it I switch off it might or might not boot up first time...
Now, whenever it starts, it gives the error "No boot device detected, insert system disk and press f1 to continue." So, I putin my windows 7 disk and rebooted the computer.
Windows installed just fine, and it functioned properly. However, when I turned off my computer, once I turned it on again it gave the same error. I found out that I could install windows 7and get it running, but when it turns off it seems like it no longer functions.
I have tried some other solutions and they have not worked. I am fairly certain that the hard drive is set up correctly.
I think it is possible in XP to have dual boot or n-boot
without elaborating, things happen, now the sequencing shows two possible booting options.
but when I boot up- a screen appears for a few seconds- acting as if I can make a choice. how do I make that screen disappear. so when I boot up again- it performs the usual normal Win 7startup procedures? smooth as silk, like before.
I was able to get to Setup where the keyboard worked okay, set the boot order to CD/DVD in all four places, and hit F10 to save and exit.
PC went to the "Press any key to boot from CD" keyboard not recognized, boot from HDD. Shut down restarted, hit ESC for Boot menu.
Got the menu, keyboard would not respond had to shut down and restart again, I could not get to Safe Mode because again, the keyboard will not respond. I tried different USB keyboards, different USB ports, all the same.
I'm at my wit's end. I'm about ready to call it dead and replace it but I thought I would just post this here to see ifanyone had an idea that I didn't already have.
Since the repair install, the dual boot option menu no longer appears. I assume the repair install overwrote the relevant boot files on the C:\ drive.
How can I restore these options?
