    Hi, can you kindly tell whether the HDD is getting detected in the BIOS. If the HDD is getting detected and if you want to bring the unit back to factory settings like it was the day one from you opened the box, you can reset the unit by following the below steps.

    Reset PC using Alt + F10:
    ******************************
    1) Press and hold the Power key for 5 seconds to power out system off completely.
    2) Hold down the ALT key down and press the Power key to turn on the computer.
    3) Immediately after pressing the power key, keep on tapping the F10 key while you are still holding down the Alt key. Your system should boot to a blue screen that says Choose an option.
    4) Select Troubleshoot.
    5) Click Reset your PC. This process will erase all data on the your system. 
    6) Click Next, then select remove everything.
    7) Click Reset and plug your unit with the charger and leave it. The process will go on and bring the unit to default settings.

    Re-try the ALT+F10 reset procedure again as shown in the video below. If it still fails, then your HDD has likely crashed. New HDDs aren't that expensive any more (about $30USD for a new 1TB HDD) and you can re-load a generic version of Win10 for free from the Microsoft media creation tool site if your system came with factory-installed Win10.

    How do I know if my hard drive has really crashed, since in the bios my hdd0 is still detected?
  • JackEJackE Posts: 17,103ACE Trailblazer
    The BIOS Information tab only detects that HDD's ID information that's embedded on a circuit board chip, NOT the system and data on the read/write disk platter and head. Jack E/NJ

    @ JackE
    on my acer 5, a515 5g. And Im pretty sure that my HDD was still working fine because before I had the "No bootable device" error, I was stuck on the Automatic repair bootloop, and I was able to get into a bluescreen via this method check link to see (). 
    But after doing this method, thats when I experienced the "no bootable device" error.
    I think I might have done something wrong and I don't know what it is.

    Im also being persistent because I am a student who is currently lacking in funds. And the cheapest trusted HDD model I can find here in the philippines costs around
    $90. Sorry for the Inconvinience and thanks for trying to help.

    Try the ALT+F10 cold boot erase-everything reset again. Sometimes it will succeed in repairing or accomodating HDD errors if tried a few times. Jack E/NJ
