I hope this hasn't been covered somewhere already but my search came up dry.
I have been running Vista with out any major problems for a couple of months now. With out knowingly making any changes to the hardware or software of my system I now get the "Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device" Message. This is what I've covered so far myself:
-Hard drive is set to master (tried CS as well)
-Actually removed all other HDs just in case
-IDE cable is fine and connected
-HD is the only device powered off strand from power supply
-Boot device priority is correctly set with HD first (except when I want to boot off the DVD)
-Reset the BIOS settings to default
-Placed HD in secondary computer in slave mode (Files intact, ran check disk with no errors)
-Can boot off the Vista disc, enter repair mode but OS is NOT listed.
(If I select load drivers at that menu it DISPLAYS MY HARD DRIVE AND ALL MY FILES how frustrating is that!)
I've run out of ideas from googling my problem. Any suggestions appreciated.
(I seem to remember repairing boot sectors with XP, can I do this from Vista repair somehow if I enter the command prompt?)
