Reboot and Insert Proper Boot Media?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just spent close to 2 hours cleaning out and re-cabling my computer to make it tidy. I put it back in my room and turned it on to have it say Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media and reboot. I have had the computer for nearly a year and I dont know how to fix this i have checked other forums on this issue but usually it occurs on the VERY first boot up when you install an OS. I think i may have something to do witth my hard drive (Seagate Barracuda 500G) but i have checked the connections and it is all connected. PLEASE HELP!

what happens when you go through and select the HDD to boot from the "boot options" menu?

Is the bios set so the HDD is the first boot priority?
