Bootable devise was not found new


Bootable device not found actually indicates the HDD (hard disk) is no longer recognised and either needs to be re-seated or replaced, if the bootable device error message comes up all the time the it will be a definite HDD replacement.

When i turn on my Acer Aspire One D255 it says: "check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"


The PXE ROM is part of your system's network interface controller. It is being entered on your system's startup to look for a bootable image on a physical network connection and if found, to boot from that image. If there is no network cable connection to your system or if there is but no bootable device is found on that connection, the result is the error message that you got. As to why your system is entering the PXE ROM can be explained by looking at your system's Setup Utility,,,

Press F2 while powering up to enter the Setup Utility and use the cursor control keys to go to the Boot tab which then shows the Boot priority order. The default order is as follows...
1. IDE0
2. IDE1
3. USB FDD
4. USB HDD
5. Network Boot : LEGACY PCI DEVICE
6. USB CDROM
Your system's internal hard disk drive should be listed beside IDE0 and it will be accessed first to look for a boot record. If the drive fails to boot, the next devices in the list will be accessed accordingly until either a bootable device is found or the last item which is USB CDROM. If a USB CDROM is plugged in on one of the system's USB ports, it will be checked for a bootable record and if not found or no CDROM is plugged in, then the system displays the last part of the message -- insert boot disk and press any key.

Press F12 while powering up enters the Boot Menu which has the Boot Option Menu. This menu should show by default the following...
1. IDE 0: (the name/type information for your system's internal hard disk drive
2. Network Boot: LEGACY PCI DEVICE

If there is no hard disk drive information shown beside IDE 0, then the possibilities are that
1. there is no internal hard drive present
2. there is a hard drive but it has failed
If there is hard disk drive information and pressing enter to select it does not result in an operating system startup, then the drive's startup partition has been wiped and so it has no bootable image.

If there seems to be an internal hard drive present but it has no bootable image, you may attempt recovery from the installation images in the hidden partition. The recovery allows restoration of...
1. operating system to factory defaults
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)

Press Alt and F10 keys together while powering up and the Acer logo is showing to enter Acer's eRecovery Management. Follow the instructions to do the recovery.

Dellc600 'primary hard drive not found nobootable device' worked


When the computer cannot "see" the hard drive, it is usally because of dead hard drive and it would need to be replaced. In this case you would see the "primari hard drive not found" and/or "no bootable device found"

You should have your computer checked by a qualified technician.

Good luck!

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable


Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.

No bootable devices-strike F1 to retry boot,F2 for setup utillity


Is there a hard disk installed inside the computer? try reconnecting it.

The motherboard, the hard drive, or the connector could be faulty in this case.

Remember to unplug and remove battery if you open the laptop, the hard drive is in most cases in the bottom under a cover with few screws or in some dells its on the side with few screws and comes out from the side instead from the bottom.

Primary Hard Disk Drive Not Found, Fixed Optical drive Not found


Reseat both the Hard Drive and Optical drive and see if they detect. If they do not, then a HDD failure is most likely. The I8000 is quirky in that if the HDD fails, the Optical drive will not work.

If reseating doesn't resolve, Replace the HDD and the optical drive should work. (Controller is a serial design and neither drive will function if the other fails)

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found


Hi Kenneth,

If you just bought the laptop, then it is still covered by a warranty. Then all you have to do is contact the seller or directly to dell. This is the fastest and most appropriate way, and usually you will get one-to-one replacement (they will replace your laptop with new one). But, please make sure by contacting Dell.

Regards,

Hi,
The no bootable device found or the promary disk not found error can be caused because of the following reasons

1. The operating system has crashed
2. The harddrive is faulty.

Try the following steps
1. Remove any cd if there is in the optical drive
2. Disconnect the Ac adapater and remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button on the laptop for 10 seconds
4. Reconnect the Ac adapter
5. Power on the laptop and press F12 key on the keyboard a couple of times slowly on the Dell screen
6. Select Hardrive diagnostics from the list
7. If the harddrive returns with an error code , you would need to replace the same
8. If not then, restart your computer and press F8, a couple of times on dell logo screen
9. Select safe mode from the list.

Use the following wizard
