HP Slimline 290-a0036 UEFI Bios does not recognize HDD after shutdown.

HP Recommended
HP Slimline 290-a0036
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am in a loop here.

This small desktop keeps on telling "No boot device found" (3F0).
UEFI Diagnostics doesn't find HDD.

Reboot with F10, set to default configuration.

Reboot in to Win 10. HDD is perfectly fine.

Shut down, reboot, "No boot device found" appears again.

Changed the BIOS battery.

Doesn't help.
Reconnect HDD cables.

Doesn't help.

In order to get to Win 10, shut down, wait, boot with F10, set default configuration, reboot into Windows.

What am I missing?

 

Thanks!

@Musepuckl11 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you are getting no boot device found.

 

Please follow the below steps to identify and resolve this concern: 

Step 1: Perform a hard reset 

HP Notebook PCs - Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset 

Step 2: Restore BIOS default settings 

Step 3: Test the hard drive using HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI (In your case, Skip to Step 4) 

Step 4: Reseat the hard drive (here's a video that shows how to re-seat the drive: Click here

If none of the above actions resolved the error condition, back up your personal data and then perform an HP System Recovery on the notebook. See one of the following documents for instructions:

Hello and thanks for your response.

The hard drive turned out to be flawless, also when tested outside the system. 

Booting the system with F10, setting the Bios to default brought temporary solution, system booted up again. 

After shutdown, bower cable disconnect and restart the error showed again - even with a new Bios battery.

What seemingly worked was switching to Legacy Bios (no booting) and back to UEFI Bios.

So for now it works again.

Will let you know if it reoccurs.

 

Thanks
