Just finished building my first PC, every thing seemed to be ok, it booted into to Bios fine and picked up all the components. But then I keep getting this message;

 

reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key

 

Now I have check the boot menu and the DVD drive is set as the first boot device with the hard drive as second but still no joy. It’s also set to IDE not raid.

 

Any ideas ?

 

Thanks

Hi B..

And you do have your operating system disk in the optical drive..  Sometimes, with the OS disk in the drive, tapping F8 at power up allows you to select the optical and start the OS installation.

Hi B...

The disk is apparently OK as it boots properly on another system.  The BIOS sees your optical drive but the system will not boot from it...   LG is a pretty good brand...

So... what's up with all that..?  

I don't know if this has anything to do with what is going on but you might do a bit of research about this link..

Hi B..

On some of these boards, certain SATA ports are only available in AHCI and RAID mode.  I don't know for sure whether that is the case with the CIIIF but if you don't already have your optical connected to SATA1 or 2 or 3... try it on one of those ports....  SATA 4 and SATA 5 may be reserved for AHCI or RAID.

If that gets you nowhere, then I world write to LG and see if they have any ideas.

I don't have the Crosshair III Formula, but I wanna thank you anyway cos I learned what "Insert Boot Media" means, and pressing F8 helped me while instalilng Vista OS seemed to lag or freeze.

Thank you much

Thanks all managed to get this sorted, ended up borrowing an external DVD drive from a mate at work and this thankfully allowed me to get windows installed.

 

Once in windows I applied the firmware update to the LG drive which then started to work.

 

 

Once again thanks for the help.

Hi B...

Glad you finally sorted this out...  Was this the firmware revision that solved the issue

GH22NS50_TN01(EW).zip


or was it something else...
