Outline your problem : I had Vista, Win7 & Ubuntu Linux 9.1 on this machine and it was running fine and one day it just would not bootup. "It said install media in the proper boot device and hit any key." I bought a new HD and a new Win7 OS.

Exact error message: "It said install media in the proper boot device and hit any key." Sometimes it would say, "Searching for storage devices."
What were you doing when the problem first appeared: I was playing the Facebook game "Knights of Camelot."
Any new hardware or software installed recently: Only something KOC put on there so I could play their game.
Any other information that may help: I had a friend look at it and he couldn't do anything with it, but he did manage to update the bios.
