    Hi
    I just got new Hdd 1 T. For my min tower acer desktop.
    1.I created 2 new partitions.
    2. installed a fresh copy of my windows 10.

    after initial installation system is rebooting AND I got a very simple message on the black screen :

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

    I tried to change all options in BIOS related to autostart like secure boot. AHCI IDE on off etc . Still can See only this message.
    I installed a 100 of systems on laptops and desktops and never had such problem any genius around?
    Thank You!!!

    Have you verified that you are using the correct partition type GPT OR MBR?

    Do you know if you are using uefi or legacy mode to boot the Win 10 USB? If you still have your install drive then please do the following:

    1. Boot from the Win 10 USB
    2. inside Windows Setup, press Shift+F10 to open a command prompt
    3. Type diskpart
    4. Type list disk - this will show you a list of your disk and weather it is using GPT partition or not? Please paste screenshot or let me know what it shows
