Solved!

Boot device not found. Hard disk (3F0)

Hi, 

I have a HP Pavilion 15 n203ed laptop running windows 8 64bit and have updated my bios.

About a month ago i bought a SSD and upgraded my HDD, it worked fine till yesterday, i started getting the error message "Boot device not found. Hard disk (3F0)" . i keep getting this error each time i restart the laptop, but when i load the bios, change nothing and then press save and exit it suddenly restarts again the error is gone and everything goes back to normal. Till it happens again in a few hours. i have had it 4 times now.

 

My question: Is this a hardware or software problem, should i return the SSD? or could it be something else?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Danny709

 

 

I have a HP Pavilion 15 n series & is planning for SSD upgrade as you did,

Sad that you got an error

 

Try going through this document & promptly follow them,

 

If that doesn't resolve you may to contact HP in your region to help you out, Did they upgrade it for you?

 

 

Thanks,
