No Bootable Device despite Windows Boot Manager

Q: No Bootable Device despite Windows Boot Manager

So I shutdown my windows 10 based Inspiron-15 5000 after a normal day's work. When I turned it back on again the next day, instead of booting into Windows, it opened a dignostic check which it passed but never booted into windows. Btw I have a SATA SSD which holds my windows and an HDD for data. I tired disabling secure boot and making sure UEFI was checked. I even resetted the BIOS to factory setting but nothing worked. It also said "No bootabe device" despite the F12 menu showing "windows boot Manager". I looked up the problem online. A solution fixed the problem by adding another boot sequence named "Windows boot manager" which file path: /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI. This solved the problem. But I still dont get why the problem came up the first place. Is my SSD faulty? If not then what is it? Thanks!

Preferred Solution: No Bootable Device despite Windows Boot Manager

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.)

A:No bootable device found-please enter a new boot device

Try, removing the battery, unplug the device and holding the Power button down for at least 30 seconds. Re install the hard drive, making sure of proper connection. Replace battery and Power plug, go into bios and set optimized defaults. Then see if the hard drive is recognized. Try to listen and see if the hard drive is spinning up.

Hi, Did any one receive that message on there Yoga2? 

A:Message on black screen saying: No bootable device, please insert bootable device.

Hi Paultyk,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
This message indicates that either the bootable Windows image is not working/ corrupt or the hard drive itself is bad.
Try checking the BIOS (FN + F2 on restart) if the hard drive storage is still being detected so reseating it to its place can help ensure that it is not loose on its connection.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes.

This is what i walked into when i came into work this morning no bootable device pxe-e61, insert bootable disc and hit any button to continue. Well, I tried to restart the comp with out the disk and was not able to get to safe mode, just the same screen, very annoying. I first tried to disconnect everything and restart, tried bios (though i really dont play in there often) but it had all the info there, but i wasnt able to access info about the hardrives (from what i recall it didnt let me highlight them, didnt list any slaves, didnt list alot of info but that was 2hrs ago, im lucky i remember 10 min ago). So i broke down, went home and got the disc, and came back, inserted and restarted, and bam, its on. I've backed up my important files, tried a system restore, took the disc out, and still get that screen, so put disk back in, restarted (still unable to get to safe mode screen) and after a few trials of hit and miss with the mouse and keyboard not working, finally got it going again. Now, the CD is in the drive, my mouse and keyboard are working, now what? I have not installed any new hardware or software in some time (at least 2 weeks for software, and over 2yrs for hardware) computer has not been moved in at least 6mnths.

A:no bootable device pxe-e61, but can boot from CD...

If your exploration of the BIOS showed NO hard drives, that could mean the drive is starting to fail, smart move backing up your data! Soon as you can, run a disk check.

Super weird that by putting in a boot CD, it then boots normally!

Okay, so first double check if your hard drives are showing up in the BIOS. Next, there should be a Boot Devices (or Boot Order) section... you should have something like 1st: CDROM 2nd: Hard Drive 3rd: USB 4th: Network (You should have Hard drive pretty high up in the list, first or second is recommended)
There will also be a section in the BIOS relating to the Network card, you should be able to change it from 'Enabled with PXE' to just 'Enabled'.

Another possibility is that the onboard CMOS battery is failing. Should look something like this.
That battery helps preserve configuration information when the computer is powered down, so if it is starting to fail, that could mess with how the system starts up, it might also mess with your date and time settings. If you decide to change it, just make sure to head back into the BIOS after the new one is in and double check the Boot devices, Network and hard drive settings.

To begin, here is my laptop, Acer 15.6" VN7-591G-792U Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Gaming Laptop. (http://bit.ly/2lEJZiv)

I'm also new to this site, so forgive me if this is the wrong thread.

I've had this laptop for about a year now. Everything working fantastically fine, until I decided to take use of my m.2 slot and buy one (Samsung 850 EVO - 250GB - M.2 SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-N5E250BW)". I honestly can't remember if I had this problem since the first day I put it in, but I think I did.

To the problem - whenever I go to boot my computer, the screen pops up with "No Bootable Device". With nothing else to do, I force shutdown my computer, wait a few seconds then boot it up again. Windows (Windows 10) loads perfectly the second time around. I've been using this method for several months now, as I don't have a way to fix it. I've also gone into BIOS, but as far as I know the m.2 is set to be the device that boots. I can be wrong, though.

I have attached an image of the BIOS boot tab to make sure I'm not an idiot.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I have installed a second (320GB) hard drive and put vista on it by disconnecting my primary (750GB) hard drive and loading vista on the new (320GB) hard drive. I then set my BIOS to boot to the new (320GB) hard drive which worked fine. Finally I reconnected my old (750GB) vista hard drive.

My goal is to have the boot option between the two Vista installations. Currently my machine automatically boots in the (320GB) hard drive as it is the one hard drive set in my BIOS.

I downloaded a copy of VistaBootPRO and put it on the new (320GB) hard drive. Now the first issue was that VistaBootPRO wanted me to backup my BCD, how do I do this?

Hi everyone, while trying to install OSX to a PC from the iATKOS v1 disc I think I comited a

mistake with the "Darwin Boot" utility and somehow rearranged something on the HDD which

rendered it unbooteable, now everytime I boot the laptop I got something like this:

"NO BOOTABLE DEVICE -- INSERT BOOT DISK AND PRESS ANY KEY"

Before that I was dual booting Win XP PRO+SP3 (in the first partiton = 100GBs) and win7 (on he

2nd partition). A third partition (30GBs) was reserved for the OSX install which failed.

I can see under another PC the intact winXp 100GBs / win7 100GBs / 30Gbs "spare" partitions

but on the laptop this HDD wont see any OS!!!

What can I do to boot win XP again and recover the folders on the desktop?

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Multi boot Problem (NO BOOTABLE DEVICE)

multiboot with OSX on a pc is fragile and strange. I use the bios to switch boot order on drives. OSX is built on BSD which uses a very different partition and format method. I would not try to use install osx on the same hard drive. I use a separate sata drive for osx and always disconnect it when installing another os. I used the same method with bsd for years though since even GRUB has trouble pointing at bsd slices if loading from the mbr.Which boot manager are you trying to use? This is probably something you should ask at :http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/

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.

I get the impression that I need to create a bootable USB to run diagnostics but I don't have the product key for the Win 8.2. Wondering if I get another copy of 8.2 somewhere, can I still run the diagnostics on this devce or do I need to get the original one from Lenovo (I don't see anywhere to ask them a simple question like that). Also wondering if the data on the drive can be recovered to a second hard drive without going through some expensive service. I had backup software on the device, but apparently it wasn't actually backing up for the last year or so. It's my son's device and there's nothing like school or work data on it so I don't want to sink a lot of money into the recovery, but don't want to have to get another device as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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?

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.

Hello, I dropped my HP laptop and must have busted the hard drive which had Windows 7 on it. I placed a different hard drive in that was also compatable, but it has windows 8. The problem that is occurring is when I start it up, it says: "No bootable device --insert boot disk and press any key".

I do not have a boot disk. How do I get the laptop to work with this windows 8 hard drive, when the default factory settings have it as windows 7?

hard drive and memory test come bak OK.
(I do not have a boot disk, or know what that is)

Can someone please help me out here? Thank you!

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.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

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.

You might want to go to the website of your hd manufacturer, download their diagnostic utiity, burn it to cd and run it. Alternatively, you can try SeaTools for DOS.

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.

Try a Repair Installation.

This can be a number of reasons:

2: It is trying to boot from another source, i.e. printer with memory card slots
3: A Memory card / usb stick which is in your PC.

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)

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?

Hi there,

This may be a warning that the Operating System maybe corrupted and needs a re-install, it may also be that the Hard drive has been corrupted. But before Re-Installing its good to check the drive if it is firmly fixed, You may also try to blow the machine off the dust --

T-540p - Windows 10 Pro x64 (upgraded from Win 7 Pro) I'm having the Inaccessible Boot Device problem discussed elsewhere here, and I need is to have a working bootable DVD or flash drive. Couple of questions. I created a system repair disk on my hub's T-530, but mine wouldn't boot to it (non-system drive error) when I changed the boot order to boot to it. Is it still possible to create a disk or flash drive to actually boot to Windows vs simply allow it to be reinstalled? I have a fully functioning command prompt, but sfc does turn up some anomolies, and I assume I need to be booted elsewhere to fix them? I see all my files on C and a backup drive just fine at the cmd prompt, and was able to get all  my files to the backup drive OK using xcopy (restoring system without losing files option does not work).  Chkdsk showed a few bad sectors, plus the "MFT Bitmap attribute is incorrect"--is that indicative of an impending disk fail? Given safe mode is not even showing as an option, I'm guessing the boot manager etc has been fubar'd. Is there any way to repair this? Will reinstalling Windows 10 even affect that? If the HD is fubar'd I'm guessing not. I'm assuming I'll need to work with Lenovo on this as it's still under warranty, but hoping there's an easier way. TIAelaine

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.

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.
