"Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"
The Pc will boot from the Win7 disc and it offers to install.
Luckily, my PC is configured as:
C: Win7 and Programs only.
D: DVD R/W
F: Copy of E: Data (I use a Batch file to copy what I want from E: to F: on a regular basis)
It also so happens that when I built the PC I fitted a 64 GB SanDisk SSD but later decided to up it to a SanDisk 128 GB. So not having wiped the original 64 GB SSD, I have just put that in and the PC boots fine.
So my diagnosis is a failed SSD C: drive. It is just under 3 years old, which is likely still under warranty.
The question is, since it looks like I will be replacing the SSD, which make should I use? I obviously would rather pay for quality/reliability here.
Many thanks in advance for your comments/suggestions.
ps I am logged in on my wife's pc, luckily I remembered my Password!
