I'm trying to install Windows 7 to a rebuilt machine but it won't run from the SATA CD drive.  Message is  ' Reboot and select proper boot device '    The CD drive is first boot priority and the HDD is blank  .  The CD drive appears in the BIOS boot list.

Anybody had experience of this ?    I've set the BIOS to defaults.

As was suggested on the Computer Hope Forum, check to make sure the cd / dvd is bootable.

OK, it's a bad dvd drive.   I've installed another and I'm continuing with the project.  Thanks.
