HI everyone. I have both bios and hard disk error that happened after i tried to install Windows 7-X64 with rufus but the thing is that i forgot to change MBR to GPT and now my elitepad 1000 G2 makes these errors below :
"Boot Device not found
Please Install an operating system on your hard disk
Hard Disk (3F0) "
And want me to use diagnostics by pressing "F2" and when i do that this error pops up :
"The HP BIOS application Selected is corrupt or missing . Please install the application and try again .
BIOS Application Error (501)
And shows the "Enter" cmd but when i press it take me to above error massage .
Also when i try to enter BIOS configuration for resetting to default device freezes and that is my major concern .
Here is the list of the things I've done so far :
1. I tried to repair BIOS through recovery and all the USB bios recovery and others like "HOLDING POWER BUTTON and WIN+B or WIN+V combinations" didn't work especially when i tried to use a BIOS recovery using USB with exact product BIOS driver in boot section ......
2.I tried to determine if this problem is a Failure in Hard Disk simply became unusable or something like that ....
So i download and booted through HP UEFI Diagnostic Recovery Tool and I've also Done a lot of test for finding hardware failure in both "Quick" and "Extensive" modes but every test passed with no error so i already know that this isn't about hardware issues but i want to tell to you so you see that .
3.I am now trying 4 in 1 USB key that HP support provided in support page if that works
i will this post for others that maybe gone through the same headache .........
But other than these methods i want you to suggest any other solution you know about this
and i'm pretty sure that it's based on the faulty MBR so can you help me fix that ?
Thanks in advance
My problem solved after using Diagnostic 4 in 1 USB key v 5.0.0 but first of all you need to change your
hard drive state from MBR to GPT for preventing further disturbances .
