Over the last couple of weeks my boot up has been very hit and miss, when it misses I get the message, 'Reboot and select proper boot device', I switch off and after a couple of tries all works fine.

When I look in the Boot Option, 1st Boot Device is 'Windows Boot Manager'.

I have reinstalled Windows 10 yesterday but still get the same problem!

Any ideas as how to solve this?

Thanks.

Disconnect all non bootable devices and place  Windows hard disk drive as a first boot device.

Take not of the clock within BIOS setup utility does it display correct time each time you power on the system?
Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer. Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download.


To keep a record of your system profile at any given time, you can publish to the Web using Speccy. Speccy uses Piriform's servers to publish the profile without any identifying information. Each profile is given a unique URL. For an example, see:

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/nGmV1yekiTFbWJJ1oggVwcV

The last part of each URL is randomized, so only people you provide with the URL will be able to find your profile.

Note: Each time you start Speccy, it will generate a new randomized URL. This is useful if you want to track your computer's information over time.
To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

  • In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.
  • In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.
  • Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.
  • In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste. This will load a link to the Speccy log.
