Hi all,
I sometimes have this issue when I boot up my PC. It sometimes can't remember my HDD boot order so I get this error message saying something along the lines of: Please insert boot drive and restart. Or insert boot media and press enter. (I can't remember the exact phrase)
It doesn't happen all the time just whenever it pleases. :p
I just reboot when I get the error and it starts up correctly. It just gets a bit annoying.

It could be the CMOS battery or something.
Please help. Thanks. :)

No problems so far. Must have been the battery. Thanks Speedy. :)

Could also be a failing HD. backup your data.....just in case :-)
Also Some PC's also try to boot from USB drives 1st....why why why why....just a matter of disabling boot from USB drives in the bios

If the CMOS batt is iffy, often the date/time goes out of wack .
