  • Hello, 
    I was getting a disk read error before so I bought a bran new Hard drive, installed it and im getting this error message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press key" I'm lost on what to do or what is wrong, I cant run any CD toinstall windows, in the BIOS it goes CD/DVD then my hard drive. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? and please explain things in simple terms. Thanks!

    p.s there is nothing on the HDD it is new, I've tried to install Vista and windows 7 on it and have gotten errors 

     my laptop is Alienwear m9700i - r1
