    It is basically asking you to select another boot device. Have you checked the bios to make sure the correct drive is set as the primary boot device?

    Otherwise, remove any external drives or flash drives and media in the DVD drive.

    Do you think your hard drive might be old enough to be having problems?

    To mitigate future issues, remove the flash drive as a boot option in BIOS settings.
