Dell XPS 12 :: Cannot Find Hard Disk Drive And No Bootable Devices

Nov 18, 2014

My laptop suddenly hanged. When I pressed Ctrl + Alt + Del, the menu did not come on. When I repeated, it did not shut down. I manually shut down the laptop. When I restarted, it said cannot find hard disk drive and no bootable devices.

Someone checked it out and they say the drive has crashed. Is it possible the links are loose? Is it possible to recover data from drive?

Dell :: M1730 Can't Find Bootable Devices.

Jul 13, 2009

My M1730 cant boot to Vista. It says in red FAILED. Also says It cant find any bootable devices. I did do the test (The one where you press F8 I think) more than once.

I just got my Windows Vista Home Premium OEM disc from Newegg today, I left my original dell one in storage back in NY. It can boot from the disc, but it cant repair my laptop. So is the HDD dead or what? =/

Dell XPS M1330 :: Error Auto-sensing Internal Hard Disk / No Bootable Device Available

Nov 29, 2014

I cannot boot into Windows anymore. The error - Error auto-sensing internal hard disk, no bootable device available' comes up.

I've removed & reinserted the disk tray but the error persists.Even in the BIOS the hard drive doesn't show up and  cannot be detected by Diagnostics either.

I removed it from the laptop and connected it to my desktop and its working fine. So my guess is the problem is not with the disk. The laptop is out of warranty.

Dell :: XPS M-1530: No Bootable Devices Found

Sep 4, 2009

My XPS m-1530 is running XP-Pro, clean-installed via instructions on this forum. It runs perfectly . . . except for one thing.

Every once in a while, especially in the middle of a lengthy download, everything stops and the screen goes right to this message: No bootable devices found.

Error Code 2000-0141. This used to happen very infrequently, but now it is more often and scary. I have removed and reseated the HD twice.

Dell Latitude D630 :: DVD / CD Not Found - No Bootable Devices

Feb 24, 2013

My previous Dell Latitude D630 went out of order (nvidia graphics) so I bought another d630 second hand without hard disk and introduced the "old" hard disk.

Everything works fine (installing drivers...) except the DVD/CD is not recognized at all:

- when in the BIOS, putting the boot sequence to: CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive

the Laptop says: No bootable devices... (It also says that, when I unplug the DVD/CD)

The DVD/CD itself does a short spinning movement when booting, so it seems to have "electricty".

I've upgraded the BIOS to A18 already;

When booting Windows, the drive is missing altogether (the hardware manager does not show it as an unregonized driver; instead the drive is missing altogether)

I understand the DVD, though introduced to the Laptop, is connected via USB - do I need some USB driver update or how can I fix this?

Is there a manual that would tell me how to check cabling or similar things? when I introduce the DVD from the old hardware - which was/is working, it is also not found in the "new" laptop, so I suppose the DVD hardware "connection" is missing??

Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.

Acer :: How Can I Find Out If My Other Hard Drive Has A Built In OS

Aug 30, 2009

I am currently using an acrer aspire 2930z. It comes with two HDD, both of which have 111GB each. I am only using 1 HDD at the moment which is only around 52percent full. I want to move all my movies, music and games to my other empty one, (we'll call drive D)but when I do this my drive D only opens up as a folder. Itries to mark this HDD as active, but get a maessage telling me that if drive D has no OS installed on it, it could stop my comp from working. What I would like to know is...... Does this drive come with vista already installed?

this is only to save me buying an external drive, (which is probably the better option), but with this extra space on my laptop it would be handy to use.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Remote Hard Disk Drive Is Not Showing Document Files

Mar 27, 2013

Just purchased an Inspiron 15 laptop with Windows 8.  I removed the hard disk drive from our old Inspiron 6000, installed it in an enclosure, and hooked it to the new laptop to be able to access the document files.  (The hdd from the old computer is a Western Digital 250 GB and was newly installed six months ago).

When I plug in the enclosure, the power light comes on and it shows up on the new laptop as local disk E.  When I click on disk E and go to documents, the only documents shown are three that are saved on the new laptop, and none of the hundreds of documents saved on the hdd from the old computer.  What I can do?

HP Envy 14 2090 Recovery :: Windows 7 Installation Cannot Find Hard Drive

Nov 13, 2014

I'm installing Windows 7 x64 on my HP Envy 14 2090.
 
Setup cannot find my harddrive, presumably because a SATA driver is missing. I have tried the supplied SATA driver from HP driver download page for my model, but they don't work. I've tried various others, still no luck.
 
The harddrive is found by BIOS. The harddrive has been working without a hitch for years, right up until I tried a re-install.
 
PS: I'm not using the HP recovery DVDs, since these install all sorts of unneccessary software I don't want. (Why do all major laptop producers add this crap?)
 
Where can I find the correct SATA drivers for use with Windows 7 x64 installation?

Acer :: Upgrading Hard Disk In 1410 - Removing Old Drive

Mar 26, 2010

I just got an Intel X18-M G1 80 gb ssd with a 2.5" enclosure to upgrade the HDD in my Acer 1410.

I opened the back panel, removed the 2 screws, then removed plastic piece holding down the gold connector, and pulled the plastic tape to get the hard drive out.

Problem now is, how do I remove the old hard drive from the chasis? I've upgraded laptop drives before and usually just there is a SATA connector. But here the SATA connector seems to be connected to a chasis/circuit board. There are several 6 point star shaped screws, including some covered by a piece of black plastic.

Apple :: Copying Contents Of Hard Disk Onto External Drive

Mar 29, 2009

Unfortunately the internal keyboard and mouse on my MBP seem to have packed up for good. Fortunately, I can still use a USB keyboard and mouse.

Is there any way I can copy the entire contents of the hard disk onto an external USB hard disk (everything so that I don't lose desktop icons, filing structure e.t.c.) and then restore it when I get a new machine?

HP Envy 14-2160se :: Hard Drive Failure - Disk Read Error Occurred

Sep 21, 2014

There's a "disk read error occured" when I startup and it won't boot into windows at all. I did a hard disk test in BIOS and the Short DST failed and the failure id is GTU23F-5QF788-XD6V5F-60UR0 for Hard Disk 1. I know there's an 80 SSD and 750 HD but which one failed?
 
If the ssd failed can I use the 750gb HD or does it need both?
 
If I do need to replace the SSD can I replace it with a regular HD (on a budget) and what size drive do I need? 2.5?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T530 Full Disk Encryption - Hard Drive Password?

Jul 24, 2013

I just received my T530 (2359CTO) and need to encrypt the hard drive. When I purchased it, I opted (among other reasons) for Windows 8 Professional because it comes with BitLocker. I then discovered that some ThinkPads have hard drives that support hardware encryption (FDE).
 
I've tried to figure out whether mine has this feature, but haven't had any luck. The BIOS gives me the option to set a hard drive password, but I'm not positive that it actually encrypts the hard drive with this setting.

a) how to figure out if my hard drive supports hardware encryption
b) how to enable it
