Solved!

No bootable device — insert boot disk and press any key to continue

HP 250 G7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I just bought HP 250 G7, tried to install windows and at first everything seemed fine. I've started installation, choose language.. but could not install because hard drive has to be formatted in GPT, so i had to convert MBR to GPT. Hard drive is SSD 128 GB, processor is Intel n4000.

So, i have converted to GPT and after that i've started to receive the message - No bootable device — insert boot disk and press any key to continue.

 

While converting to GPT i have cleared the hard drive. System showed me two drives, and i have cleared and converted booth. One of those drives was in a size of my hard drive and other was 15 MB.

 

Now i am not sure have i cleared some instructions or something, from the 15 MB drive, that was enabling the system to recognize the USB or cd/dvd and to start booting?

 

I have checked the BIOS: boot devices and boot order is set up right. Anyway, i have reset BIOS settings to default, but i am still receiving No bootable device message..

 

I have run system diagnostic (Esc button after powering on), everything seems to be in order (memory ok, hard drive ok).

 

Can you help with this. How do I resolve this issue.

I think I've managed this.
Changed to legacy, changed the boot order in bios, and it worked. Still does not recognize the usb boot volume, but started to boot from the cd. And i am really happy now, juhuuuu 🙂

Thank you very much for reading.
