    So I swapped my sata hard drive for another one drive but when I swapped the drive back it wont load. I get an error saying "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". The drive shows up in the BIOS. I tried defaulting the BIOS setting but to no avail. Any ideas?

    Are both drives SATA? In the same machine? Go into the BIOS and make sure that the correct drive is set to boot.

    yes they are both SATA and yes I already set the correct drive to boot, but still nothing (same machine). I'm starting to suspect that it's the Seagate drive. The tested the machine with a WD drive and it worked fine.
