I bought a new 320GB hard drive for my computer today at Best Buy and I'm now getting a message that says no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key. I didn't get any disk with my computer when I got it for christmas or a new reinstallation disk with the new hard-drive. I reset my BIOS setup back to default, but I'm still getting that message...
I bought a eRecovery disc from acer today hoping that would restore all the settings on my computers and get windows back up and running...If this doesn't work, then I guess it's going to be a new laptop in the works. Unfortunately, I let the guy at best buy destroy the old hard-drive.
I hope the recovery disk works. But if it doesn't recognize your new hard drive, you can buy a complete Windows DVD for $180. At this point, you will have to research the value of your current laptop vs. the cost of a new one.
