Got a brand new ACER V3-731
Formatted the HDD and want to instal Win7 Ultimate 64Bit
The following error keep coming up asa i Start The PC up:
NO Bootable Device, Hit any key
Go to the bios and change the secure mode from UEFI to legacy and then disable the secure mode.
Hi Thanks for the Reply
I CANNOT access the BIOS no matter which keys or combination of keys i use
I think i'm screwed here
HA Got it!!!!!
One finger on F2 keyWith ANOTHER finger press start buttonIMMEDIATELY start pressing f2 every SECONDYou can even start pressing F2 ...BEFORE you press start/power button (it will do no harm)SO like this....PRESS F2, PRESS POWER BUTTON, WAIT 1 SECOND PRESS F2,WAIT 1 SECOND PRESS F2,WAIT 1 SECOND PRESS F2,WAIT 1 SECOND PRESS F2,
Worked like a charm
Windows 7 Now loading after changes to HHD Mode and BIOS changed to legacy
Good day Go to the bios and change the secure mode from UEFI to legacy and then disable the secure mode. Regards,Freeza
Doesn't work for me. Brand new V3-731 today.
I can turn UEFI off and onto Legacy but the Secure Mode mode is [Disabled] and greyed out in both modes.
I want to set up dual boot Win 7 & Win 8.
I daren't repartition the hard drive until I can boot into Legacy Mode.
I have the same problem, but i can press F2 so many times i want, i can get in the bios.
only what i get is no bootable device error...
Same problem for me also - I realize I need to change security settings in the BIOS to allow CD to boot but I cannot get into the BIOS. Has anyone found a resolution yet? Previous solution of holding F2 key before pwering on doesn't work for me.
Finally got the machine booting and gained access to BIOS using the info at the following link: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/tkb/articleprintpage/tkb-id/Beta_OS@tkb/article-id/177
If secure boot is greyed out, temporarily set a supervisor password > disable secure boot > clear supervisor password.
Ah. Ha! Nice one Alan
