Hi,

 

It is not a good news actually and it's a hardware problem. Please use the following article to check:

Good luck.

Hey Man, Its not a big issue. It is because of your new laptop doesn't support legacy support of other operating systems.

Dont worry

 

GOTO BIOS(GENERALLY BY PRESSING F10)>SYSTEM CONFIGURATION>LEGACY SUPPORT>"ENABLE" IT

 

THEN PRESS F10 TO SAVE AND EXIT.. NOW YOU CAN SEE YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM WILL WORK LIKE A CHARM

..

(INCASE OF ANY HARDWARE DAMAGE IT WILL NOT BE WORKED)

 

RAGARDS

 

THANK YOU

Sol_Hemal was right, to modify BIOS settings what you need is to turn on your computer, then the black window with the message "Boot device not found, please install an operating system on your HD"

Then you must press F10 button, and you will be in BIOS menu settings.

Then do what Sol_Hemal told before, system configuration → legacy support → enable
Press F10 and select "yes" then your computer will reboot immediately, and... Voilà, all the problem solved.


Thanks Sol_Hemal I have solved my problem!
