Vista boot up trouble
I have vista loaded on an INtel 865 motherboard with a 500 Gb SATA drive as
the C drive. Installation was fine. If I reboot, I get the error about not
having a boot device. If I have the Vista DVD in the ROM drive, I get the
message about booting from Disc, but if I ignore it, the computer boots up
from the Hard drive. I want to be able to to take the disc out of the drive
and boot normally. Any ideas?

RE: Vista boot up trouble
I haven't had that problem, but have used this solution for other strange
boot issues:

Boot from the CD, then choose the repair option. I have found that even
when it says it did not find a problem, on the next boot, the system works
fine. Don't know why that is.

Hi Bart,

You might take a look at your BIOS boot option settings to make sure
that the hard drive is listed as one of the devices to boot from. For
example, I have my BIOS boot order set to boot from the CD/DVD drive
first, then the hard drive. If there is no bootable cd in the drive, it
will automatically boot to the hard drive.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
