How do i fix a encore 2 toshiba with a message that says no bootable device resart system how do i do that

You should check in your BIOS settings to make sure your internal hard drive is designated as your primary boot device. If it is and the system still does not boot up, you either have a bad hard drive or the ribbon cable has come loose. There is an outside possibility that your MBR (master boot record) has become corrupt and the drive would have to be reimaged.

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.

I just bought an little Hannspree SN10E288 with Linux. I can not install XP because all the partitions are unknown for Windows.What can I do for it.

Try the following, You need a bootable Windows CD/DVD for this
(1)Set your BIOS setting to boot from CD/DVD ROM first (before the Hard Disk or any other media)
(2)In order to set this priority resart your computer and as the first any information appears on screen start pressing "F2" and "DEL" keys swiftly and alternatively. A new screen appears....
(3)Look for "boot priority" and take the CD/DVD drive on top of the list. You need to experiment this a little because every PC BIOS has a different format to make these settings
(4) Insert your bootable Windows CD/DVD in your computer and boot from it.
(5)You will be asked to Press any key to boot from CD.......
(6)Press any key
(7)The Windows installation screen will appear.
(8)In the setup carefully select delete and select the partition where you want to install Windows.
You should have adequate space for Windows.
(9) Be careful do not touch the partition where the Linux is installed
(10) Once you have deleted the partition carefully Format it or make a Quick format.
(11)After that your Windows installation should start.
The rest is very intuitive......
Good luck!
