Aspire TC-120 Won'T boot anymore since windows 10

BurritosBurritos Posts: 2Member

Greetings folks, I got a problem with my Aspire Tc-120 since i installed windows 10. I'm fairly skilled but theres one thing i can't figure out yet.  I saw there was a bios upgrade to fix that problem. I upgraded my bios with the win flash utility. Now i'm on the EFI thing, and i can't find a way to use it, it says i to make a bootable flash drive, but how can i do it? i don'T wanna loose my data on my hard drive, do you guys have any solution for me?


it tell me to insert a bootable drive ( pc won't recognine my hard drive)

I tried to install windows on another hard drive to boot that's how i succeded at updating my WIN, but then the problem came back, still can't boot.


Thanks for your answers, i hope i've been specific enough about my problem.
