I finished my new budget build but when I switch it on I get this message
"Reboot and select proper boot device. Or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

What does this mean?

On a side note there was a wire extending from the case labelled H.D.D. LED but there was no place on the mobo to put it and it wasn't mentioned in the mobo manual.

Make sure you got the right drive to be selected in the bios as well if you have multiple installed, or have a usb drive still plugged in.

*edit* Might need a fresh install, specially if that os was on an older setup of yours prior to this new setup.

Exactly what Fletch said. Make sure your boot drive with OS is the one (I'm presuming it's the 320gb) is selected as the primary boot drive in bios.

If you're installing windows fresh, you need to boot the cd from the drive, not the hd.

Well, looks like you figured out your problem =P

*edit* Unless drives come preloaded with os's now, its been a year or so since I've got a new drive =D

Then you need to boot from a OS install disc and install it to your SSD.

You expected it to boot into windows without installing it first?Woops.

The message you got is what happens when there is no operating system installed,or no hard drive.
