Acronis True Image 2020 restore and after rebooting the computer I get this error "Reboot and select proper device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key".

I've select the drive to boot and still does not work.  What good is it using ATI if the restore fails?

Sorry but more information is needed to understand why you have an issue here?

What BIOS boot mode does your PC use?  Legacy boot where the BIOS boot option is a physical disk drive, or UEFI boot where the boot option is 'Windows Boot Manager'?

What type of backup image were you restoring the PC from?  Only Disks & Partitions backups will result is a bootable Windows OS after recovery - this cannot be done from a Files & Folders backup!

How did you perform the recovery?  Was this done using the recommended method by booting the PC from Acronis rescue media (booted to match the BIOS boot mode used by Windows?
