At first, we have to know what is the reboot and select proper boot device:
Mainly there is a chip soldered on your PC’s Motherboard named the “BIOS Chip,” and that chip is responsible for starting your Computer System, mostly from the opening.
If you don’t know, which Operating System is installed in Computer’s Hard Disk Drive or Solid State Drive (which depends on Computer) and that BIOS Chip is the one, who begin the Operating System from your HDD/SSD and gets it running by working the Boot Volume.
And By displaying the error title “Reboot and select your proper boot device” either “Insert boot media in your selected boot device and press any key” your BIOS is just trying to say, that it is not able to identify your Computer’s Operating System Drive.

I shall give some quick tips for some primary problem:
-In case, if you are receiving this error while booting your bootable USB flash drive then it’s likely that the software what you use to get your pen drive bootable isn’t running on your computer. Just use some different one to boot that USB.
-In case, you made the new build for yourself or bought a new Computer for yourself and having this difficulty on that PC. Then it’s entirely possible that your computer or laptop don’t have any operating system installed on it. And yes, it also occurs a lot when you installed a new Hard Drive or SSD into your computer.
-If you are having this problem randomly, or maybe your hard drive isn’t detected by the BIOS, then it’s entirely possible that your HDD got dead or having some difficulty in it.
If those don’t work, then you can work with some more things. Those are:
1. Check Power Cable to the Hard Disk Drive:
If the power cable is broken or attached incorrectly, the HDD cannot be identified. Then the error would cause. You can test the power cable on a different computer.
2. Check the Boot Order Settings in BIOS:
Usually, Windows should boot from hard drive. In the BIOS, if the main boot device is not set as a hard drive but an external hard drive same a USB flash drive, the error would occur. So go into BIOS to check and change the boot device to hard drive as the first priority if necessary.
If the RAM is dirty, the computer may display you this error. Clean the dirt on the RAM with a soft fabric and see if the error continues.
I Hope that solutions will help you to resolve the error.
