SSD Upgrade and Hard Disk 3F0 Error

Hp Omen 15-5114dx
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

My notebook had Sandisk A110 M2 2260 256gb ssd. I have replaced it with Intel 660P 512GB NVMe M.2 QLC SDD.

 

Before the replacement I re-installed the latest version of the BIOS and UEFI utilz. I created a live Windows 8.1 Usb and installed it. But it doesn't boot and gives an error:

"Boot Device Not Found.

Please Install an OS on your hard disk.

Hard Disk (3F0)"

 

What should I do? I am quite sure the hardware is able to detect the SSD since I am able to manipulate the hard drive partitions via live-linux tools such as GParted.

Let's reset the BIOS settings to default and check if that helps

  1. Turn off the computer and wait five seconds.

  2. Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup menu.

  3. On the BIOS Setup screen, press F9 to select and load the BIOS Setup Default settings.

  4. Press F10 to Save and Exit.

  5. Use the arrow keys to select Yes, then press Enter when asked Exit Saving Changes?

  6. Follow the prompts to restart your Notebook

Also ensure the HDD is properly seating and detected by the Notebook

 

If the issue persists, you will need to get the Recovery Media to reload the Windows. You can contact HP Support for the Recovery Media

Yes I have tried that and the result is the same.

What I am gonna do now, I will create a live-linux usb stick then I will copy the EFI/BOOT section to the external hard disk sector wise, then re-copy this section to the new ssd again sector wise.

I will update the results.

It doesn't working. The thing is I don't know why but the hardware somehow doesn't/can't communicate with the ssd during the boot. But I can install windows or linux from live-usb which means the ssd is mountable.

 

Here, the same issue I think
