Q: U510 fails to boot - no bootable device - insert boot disc and press key -

I get the above message when trying to start the laptop. Is the problem in the SSD, the HDD or Win10? I tried the 1 Buttton Recovery (twice) and nothing changes even though it says the recovery was successful. What should I do?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Dear Friends,

Hope all is well..

Yet another mystery appears today to me anyway when I booted this notebook first time.
I do not have any bootdisc.

This appears at the top of the screen.
"No bootable device -- insert boot disc and press any key" and if I keep hitting enter it just repeats.

I set the BIOS to defaults assuming the boot order might be the cause?! But,

Before I reset it to defaults it was giving me this sort of message. I'm not sure if this is the "exact" order it appeared?

The day before yesterday, I turned off the PC using Windows Vista Menu > Shut Down. When I turned it on, after the HP logo, it shows a black screen with the following error: No bootable device -- insert a boot disk and press any key. I already tried to Load BIOS Setup Defauts, did Memory and Primary Hard Disk Self Tests (they were OK), changed the boot order (F10), but the error message persists. I did the reset procedure, which I unplugged the battery and the AC charger and keep the power button pressed for 6 seconds, but it didn't worked either. I tried the (F11) Recovery Mode, but the error message persists (I do not have the recovery discs to boot from the disc). I tried to boot from Windows XP disc but it stays forever on the Press any key to start from the CD message. I tried to boot it using another OS CD (Ubuntu) but it asks to update the BIOS. I do not have Vista DVD (it did not come with the PC). What else can be done? How can I solve this problem?

My partner's laptop HP 0700 Notebook will not boot up and just comes up with the above message. We found an HP troubleshooting site which said to reset the BIOS default settings by pressing the Escp key, F10 followed by F9 to reset. Then it said to press the F2 System Diagnostics keys which tested the hard disk and all the tests came out OK. When we tried to restart it, it came up with the same message and we have noticed that before it comes up with this message it says in the bottom left-hand corner "Prepare boot to OS" and then comes up with the message in the heading. We have not bootable disk as the laptop already had everything installed.

Coupled with this my partner's virus protection is coming up with "Threat detected" every minute on practically every site my partner visits on the Internet. You will appreciate that we cannot run any virus checks as we cannot get into the computer.

I have Windows Vista installed on my desktop. Today when I woke up, the computer had turned itself off and when booting up states "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key." So I used my Windows Vista Anytime Upgrade disc to boot to "Repair your computer" option. When the System Recovery Options loaded, it could not find my Windows installation so I just hit Next anyway. When I went to Command Prompt, it brought me automatically to "X:\Sources". I tried running "bootrec.exe /fixmbr" and "bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd" and both outputed "Device not found." I tried "cd c:\" and it outputted "Device not found." I tried Startup Repair and it said "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically." ProblemSignature06 reported NoHardDrive. I rebooted and removed the CD, and still no luck. I entered the BIOS via F2 and switched the boot order configuration, so hard drive was above CD/DVD, saved, and then it booted up to Windows! But I restarted and am only getting the same "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key." Please help me. Thank you.

The hard drive is not defected as it has the OS installed and I can log on to it and use the programs in the laptop.

I'm having the topic error whenever i start my laptop, and i believe i know why, i just have no clue how to fix the damage i've done. I believe i've formatted my computers internal hard drive to a partition that the computer doesnt recognize. I was trying to format an ide hard drive to a format i can use for my ps2, but instead of disk 1 (the ide) i choose disk 0, the laptops hard drive, and now i get the error.

A:no bootable device, insert boot disk and press any key.

Disk 0 is your system drive and usually contains the boot files needed to start Windows. In this case, it sounds like you've wiped the drive by formatting it and all of the data on the drive is lost. I think you're looking at a re-install.

Hi. I have formatted my hard drive and installed windows XP pro (SP3) on it. It got installed well. However, once I take out the OS cd after completion and restart the system for any reason, the system stays blank for long with a blinking cursor on top left corner and then after couple of minutes goes on to show the above error.

This doesnt happen when I keep the OS cd in the optical drive and then start the system as it goes on to show the "press any key to boot from cd..." thing and then load the OS normally. What could be the reason for this and how can I get my system to boot without the OS cd in it everytime (without having to format it again). Please help.

It can be a number of things

First thing I always tell customers to do is:

1: Check in BIOS and make sure the HDD IS detected
2: Make sure the boot order seems OK, make sure the HDD is set to first boot device as a simple check.
3: Make sure no peripherals are pluggged in, i.e. printer (to rule out any 3rd booting options)

If everything seems OK, then that's when we'd try a system recovery, stick in the recovery CD / XP CD depending on the OS and recovery method.

If it boots into the recovery and we can do chkdsk /r - If that comes back OK, try and run the complete restore.
If it goes through OK and in to Windows then problem sorted just a software issue.

If it goes through OK but then comes up with the same issue, could be a fault with the HDD / Mobo (Not recognising a HDD is detected properly)

Hi everyone, I just thought that i would share my findings on this problem as it has been giving me a headache all night. I tried to install Windows 7 on my laptop which was running ubuntu 14.04 and i kept getting denied due to error msg-

"PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

I tested the hard drive and it was ok, I installed linux mint and was successful and realized that the fault was in the usb drive. So after a great deal of research the result was that the installer needed to be made bootable for UEFI.

- Create bootable Windows 7 usb using the Windows 7 usb/dvd download tool
- Once completed open the efi folder
- Create a new folder and name it "Boot"
- Open the microsoft folder and then open the boot folder and copy all of it's contents
- Paste the contents into the "Boot" folder that you created
- Open the "sources" folder and right click on the "install.WIM" file and use 7.zip to open archive
- Once extracted open the "windows" folder then open "boot" and then open "EFI"
- Locate "bootmngfw.efi" and drag it to the "boot" folder that you created
- After moving the "bootmngfw.efi" file rename it to "BOOTX64.EFI"

After doing this my usb booted finally booted into the Windows 7 installer screen and I was able to proceed normally. I hope this post saves someone else some grief.

Hello:

I have Windows 7 on a AMD Phenom Machine.

Hard Drive died so I put another one in and restored Windows with Acronis True Image.

When I leave the Windows repair disk in the drive, the restored system starts perfectly, runs perfectly etc. But if I pull that repair disk out of the drive I get this error about "No Bootable Device" "Insert Disc". So in other words that repair disk has to be in the drive, else I get the error.

I have already:

1. Verified that the boot sequence points to my Windows Drive
2. Run system repair. That's useless. It just tells me everything is fine.
3. Run bootrec fixmbr, vixboot, rebuildbcd. No problems found
4. Run Chkdsk. No problems found.

And about a million other things.

What should I do?

Thanks.

A:No Bootable device - Insert Boot Disc error.

Just a guess, but it sounds like there were two partitions on the old drive, the System reserved partition, usually around 100MB and your OS partition. You restored the OS partition but not the System Reserved partition, which is where the boot files were.

Running Startup Repair from a booted Win 7 install DVD should fix that. You may have to run it up to three times.

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River.
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

I have figured out if I go into BIOS first the PC will boot up but is very slow in doing so. I googled the issue and found something telling me to default the BIOS. I did this and it booted once. Trying to decide if the HD is out. I ran diagnostics and it does not see a HD. But if that's the case why does it even boot after going into BIOS. I am running Windows 10 Pro.

I am no expert on BIOS, but I have read other problems similar to this one, and know that if I don't have the boot disk or the OS disk, I will need to know that at least. So my boot sequence is as follows:
Boot 1: (Hard drive)
Boot 2: CD/DVD: PM-ATAPI DV
Boot 3: USB: Generic-Compa
Boot 4: Lan

I am curious if the (Hard drive) is the issue. The BIOS tells me that anything in parentheses is disabled from corresponding type menu. But I truly have no idea how to change that. Which brings me here.
If anyone can offer any help to this, I would greatly appreciate it.

HiYou will have to give a little more information.What is the make and model of the computer?If it isn't a brand name what make and model of the motherboard.Or you can post a Speccy that will give that information.[ Go to Piriform's website, and click the big button.

Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version.

You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot

You will see the following prompt:
Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Congrats! You have just posted your specs!... Read more

I bought a Caviar SE16 Serial ATA drive from Western Digital(SATA II).And all i got was this lousy message when i started up my PC.My mobo is an Intel D946GZISSLIt only supports SATA but i didnīt think i would have a problem since the drive is backwards compatible with SATA.


I got the utility called Data Lifeguard Tools from the makers website and burned it to a CD and tried rebooting with that to see if my disk was kaput but i couldnīt boot from the cd either.Now iīm not sure if i burned the DLT right or something but iīm pretty sure i couldnīt boot from the cd either when i tried with the Windows XP Cd.And that cd works fine.

The bios i just donīt understand whatīs going on.I checked to see if it detected my drive and it appears to be detected as SATA 1 or something.Master and Slave say nothing is installed.I tried changing the boot order but i doesnīt seems to change anything.

Gonna try tomorrow booting with the Data Lifeguard Tools form a floppy disk.But first i would love to have some kind of advice first because my Pc case is a bit small( microatx) and i have to remove my dvd drive and videocard to reach the Hardrive.

Thanks for the help and sorry for my bad english and poor grammar.

This black screen appeared after starting up my pc. I ran my windows repair cd and 'no hard disk' appeared. I checked in my bios and my HD is not showing up. I have checked and reseated the cables with no success. I also extracted my Hd and hooked it up to a USB adapter and it did not show up at all. I hear power to the HD but can't seem to get to the data. I have a years worth of photos on there and need to get it working again. Any suggestions?

I have changed boot manager to DVD drive, f8 key does nothing, same with old HDD and new HDD.

Are you trying to just boot from the DVD or only because the HDD isn't working?

My Mom brought her computer to me once with that error and the HDD just wasn't plugged in all the way.

PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

I am not hardware savvy...

I have checked all connections, and they all seem good
I have tried removing my hard drive and reinstalling it

I have tried using my boot disk
It loads windows files, I choose English and press ok, but the only option that I can choose is exit on the restore menu, the other 2 choices are greyed out and cannot be selected
I have tried booting from the CD/DVD ROM drive
I have tried booting from my backup USB device
And I have also put in a new hard drive
None of these options have gotten me anywhere...
Can anyone help? (BTW, please speak in computer dummy language because I am not familiar with all of the computer lingo and abbreviations, lol)
 

A:PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable No bootable device -- insert boot disk...

The PXE-61 Media failure frequently that the hard drive has died or has otherwise become unreadable. You would still receive this failure by installing another drive without changing the boot order to install an operating system. This can also be caused by a failure of the Disk Controller or even a bad data cable.

Usually when I see this error its the Power supply, or and bios issue. Anyone have any Ideas. I can actually boot to windows but the computer shuts down in about 20 min and give that error. I am use to seeing that when it will not start, but it starts and stays on for a bit but not long enough to save stuff. I even tried to reload it and it wouldn't let me. I am figuring its the hard drive. Any Ideas

"reboot and select proper boot device. Or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key.
 

A:"reboot and select proper boot device. Or insert boot media in selected boot device

First of all, no one has any idea what we are attempting to diagnose. Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb, exact ram, exact video card, etc, etc. If this is a big box system, then post the exact brand and model# If you have a service tag# post that as well.

Note do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for all of your parts.

This error happens every time I try to boot my PC.

First sign of something going wrong was the wireless internet not connecting to any network, after rigorously scanning fr viruses there was a trojan my anti-virus software could not get rid of. Occasionally, my system starts up if I'm lucky, but having this problem I have left my PC off for quite some time, came back to it today and it turned on fine although being very slow. Also, when the computer starts it makes a little beep noise but being on the desktop it kept repeating the noise over and over as if it was stuck in a loop, then after around 5 minutes the blue screen error message came up, after this it just keeps displaying the disc boot failure message.

I have no idea how to fix this as I am no computer boffin, any help would be highly appreciated!

Thanks, Sam.

p.s im using a different computer to the one im trying to fix if this isnt already obvious

I have upgraded the RAM of my pc last friday. I have added another 1GB of DDR400 and everything seems working fine. But this morning, when my brother just informed me. that when he tried to turn on our pc and errors come up:

"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device"

I have not had this PC for more than a year now since I bought this from my previous employer.

Here are the specs of my pc:

HP Compaq dx2000 MT:
-Intel Pentium 4
-256 MB RAM (currently upgraded and added 1GB RAM)
-80 GB harddisk
-CDRW combo drive

I don't have WinXP CD.
Maybe interface cables may have become loose when I installed the RAM last friday?
I'm not really sure.. I'll have to check it, once I get back home..

A:Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device

Since you installed new ram and had no issues before that is where I would start, run Memtest. If it shows any faults whatsoever the ram has a problem. New items can fail during initial burn in, Memtest is free and has good approval ratings here and on other boards.Look for "free down load on the left" http://www.memtest86.com/
