    So my buddy seems to think it is a windows xp OS on a custom built pc. When I boot the pc I am presented with "Select proper Boot device", so I boot into the bios and as you can see by the picture the sata drive is selected. Need some serious help here on my next move. Thank you in advance.

    That SATA drive you're referring to appears to be a Lite-On iHAS524 disc drive.
    I'm very familiar with that brand/model disc drive because I have a few of them.

    There doesn't appear to be a SATA hard drive detected.

    The YouTube link should be in your Browser history.
