    I've had my macbook pro for about to month now. I've had not problems with it until today.

    Every time my computer is restart I get the message "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key" I have to restart hold down the option key to select my hard drive...

    How do I get rid of this message?

    System Preferences > Startup Disk ... choose your HDD.

    Somehow the startup disk got set wrong. Not sure how, Boot Camp changes the startup disk, as can some other things.
