When I start up my computer I get an error on a black screen that says:

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083)

Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

Hello, and Welcome to BC.

 

That error usually indicates a failing drive or a drive that for some reason is no longer detected. The fallback of not detecting the boot drive is to find a device on the network.  If you check your BIOS does it show your hard drive listed?  Is this a desktop or laptop?

I have a desktop, when I go to the BIOS thing it detects hard disk: WDC WD20EZRX-00D8PB0 ( which I'm guessing is the western digital hard drive) but I also have a solid state drive that has Windows 8.1 installed on it but that one isn't showing up, ( I think so atleast, it's really hard to navigate this BIOS menu)

If your SSD is not detected it's possible it has failed. See if re-attaching your data and power cables helps. Be sure to unplug the computer, hold the power button down for 30 seconds and touch some bare metal of the case before doing it.
