Getting an atypical "no boot device available" error message
by Paladinhero - 4/6/13 5:30 AM
Hi all, pretty new here, and would appreciate some help.
In my pc I have an SSD drive (c:) with windows 8 installed, and two 7200rmp hard disks (d: and e:). I do not have other OS installed in the other hard disks, nor have I partitioned any of the hard disks.
Recently, the e: drive became faulty, and every time I removed it from my mobo, the computer would give me a "no boot device available" error. But when I reconnect the faulty hard disk, I would be able to boot up to windows (albeit at a very slow pace).
I ran chkdsk on the c: drive, no problem.
When I connect and reconnect d:, I still get this problem.
I've checked the bios configuration, I.e. making sure the hard disk priority points to the ssd drive, but I still get the error message.
Can anyone help me with this? It is a weird problem.
