    You may receive the error "No Bootable Device" if your computer does not detect a hard drive, solid state drive, or other bootable drive to load the operating system. This can sometimes be caused by a change to settings in your BIOS or UEFI. Use the following steps to resolve this situation:

    1. Hold the power-button for 5 seconds to power off the device.
    2. Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key, or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.
    3. Press F9 and then ENTER to load the default configuration. Press F10 to save your changes, and restart the system. Select Yes and press ENTER to confirm.


    Power off the machine and disconnect everything from the machine. Check whether there is a small pinhole on the underside of the machine. Not all models have a pinhole. If pinhole is present, press into the hole for 5 s with a bent paper clip without a sheath. Then press the on/off switch continuously for 20 s and ignore intermittent restarts of the machine. If pinhole is not present, press the on/off switch continuously for 20 s and ignore intermittent restarts of the machine. Release the button and wait for 15-30 minutes. Reconnect the laptop to the power supply and wait for the full battery indication (blue) light. Then turn it on normally.

    Can you send a photo of the BIOS boot tab?

    If possible, remove the SSD , connect it to another PC and check if it is accessable.

    If that doesn't work, try to repair your PC.

    To repair your laptop, do the following steps.

    1. Create a bootable flash drive with Windows Media Creation Tool.
    2. Enable F12 Boot menu in the BIOS.
    3. Insert USB flash drive, start your computer and begin tapping F12 to enter boot menu. Select USB. When you see the windows screen, click "Repair your computer" on the left side of the screen.
    4. Click "Troubleshoot", "Advanced Options", "Startup-Repair" or try "System Restore".
