  1. Reboot and select proper boot device issue


    Hey folks, scratching my head on this one as my computer no longer boots. Had a friend ask me to wipe her SSD from her laptop that wouldn’t turn on. I plugged in her ssd and ran Diskpart to delete partitions on her ssd (Disk Manager wouldn’t allow me to do so). Formatted her drive and removed her ssd.

    I rebooted my computer shortly after and now unable to boot to windows 10.

    Bios shows my ssd, startup repair fails, command prompt seeing all files intact and appears healthy. I cannot use diskpart -> select partition -> active as it is not MBT.

    Any adice or guidance on how I should proceed? Ideally, without a complete reinstall?

    :)

  2. Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device...after reboot?

    Hello all. Getting a little frustrated here. A couple of weeks ago we had a user come in on a Monday morning to find that her pc was displaying the classic message "Reboot and select proper boot device...". Tried popping in a windows disk and fixing the MBR, no luck. Ended up reinstalling windows and her few programs back on it. All was good after this. For about a day. She came in the next day to find the same message. So at that point we decided that more than likely the drive was bad even though oddly enough it tested out fine. It was a Corsair 60gb SSD.

    Last week we swapped that Corsair with a 64gb Crucial SSD and installed Windows. We then created a backup image of that drive. All was good until Thursday when her power strip that the PC was plugged into got tripped. Start up the computer for find "Reboot and select proper boot device..." message. So, apply the backed up image to the SSD since repairing the MBR didn't work.

    Now this morning she comes in and the PC is running fine. Attempts to open Microsoft Word and she gets a pop-up stating there isn't enough disk space. So, she then restarts and upon booting back up gets "Reboot and select proper boot device..."

    Any ideas what is causing this? Is it something with the mobo or do I just have horrible luck and replaced the bad SSD with another bad SSD?

    I understand your logic.
    But that is not what is happening.

    It simply won't go.

    On the other hand, if I take this path... brings me to W10 from where I'm posting *Smile
