You are receiving this error because your computer was unable to find your operating system so it could not boot. And this is because of the following reasons:

1. There is a disk stuck in your optical drive. So check if there is any disk on the drive and remove it.

2. The boot sequence in your BIOS is not properly configured. Boot into BIOS and then modify the boot sequence and prioritize your primary drive.

3. You have installed a new hard drive. Just insert the installation disk of your OS and then restart your computer. Esnure that the boot sequence is set to boot on your CD-ROM drive.

4. You have corrupted system files. It is possible that there are system files that have been deleted or corrupted or the boot sector has been damaged. To ensure about it, insert your installation disk and go to the Recovery Console. Type Dir C: and check if you can access the contents in Drive C:. If they are accessible, it could be a missing or damaged files and you may need to run the following command: 

fdisk /mbr

sys c:

5. This can also be due to a damaged partition in your hard drive. Try to reformat your operating system.

Hi Rodney,

This means that there’s no bootable device that your computer can detect. The main possible reasons why you get this error are:

1. Loose HDD power connector.

2. Loose SATA cable

3. You have a broken HDD

First you need to unplug your CPU, open one side where you can see all hardware installed, remove the two connectors connected to the HDD, it is the power connector and SATA connector. Then connect it again properly.

Next, turn on the CPU, on post press DEL or F1 to open the bios, go to “system” and check if the system already detect your HDD. Normally Serial ATA port 0 to 3.

If the system still cannot detect HDD, possible that you have a broken HDD.

Hope this can help.
