If the drive is not recognized in the BIOS, either the issue is with the drive or your system board. try to remove and reconnect the drive from the notebook. if this does not work, you can also try a BIOS update, or test if your drive will be detected on another notebook. if the drive works fine on another system and another drive also fails on your system, it would be an issue on the system board. If the drive, however, fails on another system, you'll need to get a drive replacement.

Can legacy bios ever boot gpt efi, say with a linux efi emulation.


Ok so when it's trying to boot in legacy mode it will see the hard disk as unformatted. Therefore it won't boot Windows 8 or 10. You need to get the bios back into booting uefi.
Resetting the bios should do that anyway, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the bios to make that change. Try doing this with the hard disk unplugged so you don't risk trashing it.

I have a NP770Z7E-S01UB notebook. I can't get BIOS changes to stick so that I can boot from a CD.


Hi
BIOS changes are usually saved using the F10 key or going to the EXIT menu and using SAVE & EXIT. This is detailed on page 99 of the User Guide which you can download from here:-
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201408/20140828134026815/Win8_Manual_eng.pdf
If you use the Esc key to leave the BIOS, your changes will not e saved.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

The hard disk may be running too hot.
The desktop case inside temperature maybe too hot. Check the power supply fan/CPU fan are operating correctly. You may need additional cooling in the desktop case an additional fan near the hard disk.

if you have a new hard drive you will have to install the windows operating system from an external source such as a cd drive
go to bios --boot settings and change from 1st boot hard drive to 1st boot cd
install the win os and then you can install the rest
when finished go back to bios and -boot and change back to 1st boot hard drive

Bios replacing


You will need to download the BIOS installation software for DOS if they have one from the motherboard manufacturer and the BIOS file. You will then need to make a bootable dos cd-r disc using windows. Once you have done this you can use the disc to start your computer in DOS mode. Then burn the BIOS DOS SOFTWARE and the BIOS FILE on a cd-r. Then you will be able to run the BIOS software from dos and install the bios file. You could also install windows on a USB hard drive then try to boot from it if your computer can boot from USB and the USB boot device option is still working.

Boot problem with Dell Optiplex GX150


To reinstall Xp from the CD you need to press F2 and go into the BIOS then select the boot order configuration and make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
After installing XP, if you wish you can go back into the BIOS and change the boot order to boot from the hard disk first.
