I bought a new HDD (WD3200LPVX 320GB Sata) for my laptop, i installed the OS and everything went well but after like 2 days when i started my computer it started showing the following message: "Select proper boot device and press any key".
I managed to finally start the computer after like 4 to 5 reboots, but today nothing works (5 minutes trying that "trick").
Edit: This problem happens aswell in my desktop with the same disk. Sometimes theres an error message when trying to start the pc, appears the pri master atapi cd rom etc... (It's like the screen before entering bios but this one just stays) the error says Third Master Disk Error, again it's a completely new disk.
I already searched a lot about this but nothing seems to work.
I acessed BIOS (American Megatrends 2.61)
-Boot order is set correctly: 1:Hard Disk 2:CD/DVD etc,,,
-In the ide configuration its set: Pri Master: ATAPI CD Rom ... Third Master: Hard Disk,
Pressing esc it gives us the option to select if we want to boot from HDD or from CD/DVD ROM my HDD from times to times disappears, so i thought leaving a CD(Windows Vista CD) in the computer to test if it would boot it up if i selected to boot from hdd and it did. Maybe it's because of the IDE Configuration?
Please help me this problem is quite annoying and seeing has i can't find a solution maybe you can help me out, thanks!
