I/0 error. press eny key to reboot - are

Hello Dell Community, it is my first time posting here so please bear with me. Also, I am not well-versed in the technical terms so please explain stuff to me like I'm 5.

I own a Dell Inspiron 15 3567 for school purposes. Its battery has failed a few months ago (it's powered on through an outlet). 

Today, I woke up to my laptop booting up in a loop with a black screen with the words "No boot device found. Press any key to reboot." under the PXE ROM stuff. I have been told that 4 power interruptions happened on that day and my laptop presumably booted up at least 4 times during the time I left it unattended.

I have read past forum posts and tried the following:

1. Check the BIOS if the hard drive is detected (result: it's still listed as a Toshiba 1TB drive).

2. Run Diagnostics (F12) and check results (result: ran the diagnostics and everything seems fine (except for the battery)). 

Past posts point out that this is a problem with the hard drive but the diagnostic test says the test results are "Passed." I also clicked "OS Boot Path" and it returned a passing result. What seems to be the problem here?

    It is extremely unlikely that any computer purchased at a store bought on this planet will have installed XP Recovery Console.

    It is extremely unlikely that any computer purchased at a store bought on this planet will be accompanied by a genuine XP installation CD bootable that can be used to start the XP Recovery Console.

    It's extremely likely that any manufacturer on this planet will send you an installation CD XP genuine for you can start in the Recovery Console.

    It is extremely likely that the majority of the posters on the forums is not any type of bootable XP media.

    It is extremely likely that the majority of the posters on the forums have never actually seen, possessed or otherwise come into contact with an XP bootable installation CD authentic in their lives, or if they already had in their possession, it is now nowhere to be found.

    I wonder why never support engineers offer this idea for the Recovery Console.

    (a) they do not know how
    (b) they are not allowed to post anything that isn't in a KB article
    (c) they are not allowed to post links to any place outside of Microsoft
    (d) your idea here

    You can make a bootable CD of XP (no XP media required) Recovery Console.

    If you have no XP bootable media (or aren't sure you have) create a bootable XP Recovery CD of Console and do not forget.

    This is not the same as recovery disks that might have come with the acquisition of the system store.

    You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burn it to a CD.

    The ISO bootable image file you need to download is called:

    xp_rec_con. ISO

    Download the ISO from here:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?ueyyzfymmig

    Use a new CD and this simple and free program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:

    http://www.ImgBurn.com/

    Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:

    http://Forum.ImgBurn.com/index.php?showtopic=61

    It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer running.

    You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.  These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

    When you start on the CD, follow the instructions:

    Press any key to boot from CD...

    Installing Windows... going to pronounce.

    Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.

    Select the installation that you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)

    You may be asked to enter the password (usually empty).

    You should be in the folder C:\WINDOWS.  It's the same as the

    C:\Windows folder that you see in Solution Explorer.

    The Recovery Console allows base as file commands: copy, rename, replace, delete, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, cd, etc.

  • Remove disks or other media.__Press press any key to restart

    Hello

    I've seen a few posts on this topic but not have been very useful.

    My computer (Dell Inspiron 2200) was relatively slow and I decided to reformat the machine.  After doing that it seems the hard drive was fried in the process that I have been unable to get the machine to boot properly after the reformatting process.  When I ran a diagnostic on the computer, a message was also discussed more leading to believe that this was the case.  This is why I took an old hard drive that I had and tried to use it on the machine.  I created a Windows startup disk by downloading the file and burn a disk.  I changed the order of BIOS to move the CD drive first on the list and the error "remove disks or other media."  "Press any key to restart" continues to be displayed.  Please help me

    Thank you

    A HD is fried in any reformatting/installation process.

    You don't need to create any gain of boot floppies, you just need your convalescence winxp / installation disks to prepare your drive for installation

  • No boot device - insert boot disk and press any key

    Hello

    I was with boot camp to install 10 Windows from a usb key. The first problem I encountered was an error message stating that Windows supports software could not be downloaded on my flash drive. I read that the necessary drivers could be installed later so I unchecked the box. The part of the installation, then training camp as it should (create a partition etc.)

    However, when the Mac went to restart and (probably) to start the program installation of Windows, the error message "No boot device - insert boot disk and press any key" displayed. My problem is the wireless keyboard does not respond and the light on this issue seems to suggest that it is not connected. My guess is that the drivers needed, such as Bluetooth are not there.

    I'd be happy enough to restart OS x and forget all about Windows, but I can't see how to get around this problem?

    A wired keyboard could work?

    any help is appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Max.

    A wired keyboard and mouse will work. If you try to install Windows and tried to download the Windows software on a wireless network, try a wired connection. to rebuild your USB Installer.

    Hello

    My laptop froze this morning and so I stopped it when restarting it however, I received the message "No boot device - insert boot disk and press any key", what it means?

    I didn't not get discs with the laptop, or have I made the recovery discs. The instruction manual says to press f8 when I restart and go to "menu of advanced start", but it doesn't matter. Where should I go from here, is there a program I can download that would have this disc? All my work on the computer will be lost?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hello

    He looks at the HARD drive died and so the laptop can not boot from the HARD drive but request disk bootable.
    But to be sure, you need to access the BIOS (press F2) and check if the HARD drive is recognized in the BIOS.
    If it s not recognized, then you need a new HARD drive.

  • Pavilion dv6 - 7095ca: no boot device - insert boot disk and press any key


    Thanks for your help and please excuse my bad English.
    Please check item 7, if you're in a hurry. This is the point with my Pavilion DV6 - 7095-CA:

    (1) the operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit), the provided original with my 7095CA Pavilion, more updates HP until 2013, and all Windows updates until July 2015.

    (2) now I can't access the operating system and I have no interface UEFI. I can see that I press F2 at startup, just a test simple disk in BIOS f.0Une (the test shows that the disc is OK)

    (3) return in 2013 it took a drive failure. I did replace the disk and reinstall original Win7, all updates, including the HPS, win7 updates and all my personal software.

    (4) at this time, I bought a spare hard drive and did a complete copy of the disc using Partition Wizard bootable cd. The second disc has been tested and worked perfectly, with all of my personal software on this subject.

    So I have 2 HDs identical with the same system on both drives, fully working and tested.

    (5) a few days ago I came across the HP website and made a few updates, including the BIOS f.0Une (the last BIOS update, was of course).

    (6) after BIOS update ran, I received the message "no boot device - insert boot disk and press any key".

    (7) I couldn't solve the problem, so I did remove the hard drive and install my backup drive, which lay in a dry place without danger from 2013.

    (8) I turned on the computer and got the same message "No boot device - insert boot disk and press any key", and I couldn't find any way to solve this problem.

    Now I'm doing a new installation on a third HD everything works very well, so far, in the new facility and I will never buy HP again.

  • My Toshiba laptop error: No. Bootable device-insert boot disk and press any key.

    When I put the bootable disc in I lost all my data. Now the problem is that I have a disk of Home Premium Windows 7 64 bit with product key number. This drive doesn't have SP1 on it, and when I tried to load the disc the message was that he could not install this drive.  This hardware of computers may not support booting to this disk.  Make sure that the drive controller is enabled in the Bios of the computer.  (I don't have the original software provided with the purchased used laptop computer).

    I called Toshiba and they said I needed a new drive and it would install for $149.00. I did not pursue it.

    Is my question there a way to get a Microsoft update disc that includes the original as well as the Service Pak data? I see several option on the web site but do not know what I can do.  It seems to me that everything I need is the service pak but cannot load the original software. Is there something in the BIOS I can change?

    Or is there another solution without buying all new software.

    Thank you

    Pickle, farmer

    Your PC Toshiba laptop includes a manufacturer recovery partition, and unless you have screwed up the hard drive, it should still be there and accessible...

    That's how access you... For Toshiba, press and hold the "0" BEFORE and during power-up Need you options recovery and overall the machine back exactly as it was when you bought it first.

    Several updates and hours later, you would still have a working machine. After re-installing your programs preferred and your applications, you must use the data backups made to recover what you have done on the machine since...

    It takes a lot of time, but it all works.

    An alternative...

    You can download a Windows 7 ISO, Windows 7 downloads , create a boot from it and pure media install Windows. The only catch here is that you must be able to read the sticker COST on the machine, the version of Windows and the key code. Then you re - install your favorite programs and do data backup procedure as above.

    If you have no backups of data or copies elsewhere and your Windows does not start, you need to make the drive of the machine, connect to another and copy the important of her data files, then place the player to the original host, using one of the methods above to re - install Windows...

  • How to Fix No boot device found Error on Windows 10, 8.1 and 7

    Getting startup error no boot device found press any key to reboot the machine, while Start the Windows 10, 8.1 or win 7 System? This error message basically means that the affected system was unable to gain access to the HDD/SSD that contains its boot information. Or in other words, when you turn on the system it scanned all connected HDDs/SSDs for boot information But did not find any. Some Time this Error message would be different like no bootable device detected – Insert Boot disk And press any key. No Boot Device Available – Strike the F1 key to retry boot, F5 to run the setup utility etc.

    Contents

    Why no boot device found error at startup?

    Usually, this Boot Error no boot device found, No Boot Device Available or No Bootable Device Detected Error occur While Reboot the system to fix some problem or Some Time After added a new HDD Or external HDD drive. So the reason for this error can be incorrect boot order, faulty MBR (BOOTMGR is missing or corrupted ). Again if System files are damaged, Having a Faulty HDD, Disk drive Error, Bad Sectors, partition not detected etc cause this no boot device found error on windows 10, 8.1 and win 7.

    No boot device found

    After understand this Boot problem (no boot device found) And the Reason Behind this Boot Error. Here apply Bellow solutions To get rid of this windows Boot error no boot device found press any key to reboot the machine.

    Disconnect External USB Devices

    Start with Basic solution First disconnect All External USB devices to make sure any external HDD, USB thumb drive not causing the issue. Sometimes due to incorrect boot order windows try to boot from an external disk drive, USB drive. And when didn’t found any OS this will result no bootable device detected – Insert Boot disk And press any key. No Boot Device Available – Strike the F1 key to retry boot, F5 to run the setup utility etc.

    Also a number of Users Report on Microsoft forum, Reddit they were unable to boot to their PC, but after disconnecting their USB devices, the issue was resolved. We recommend disconnecting all external drives such as external HDD, USB drive, printer, scanner etc. Then after try to start windows normally and check windows start normally. If yes then any external drive causing the issue to connect them one by one to find out which one causing the issue.

    Check HDD for loose cable connection

    If you are a Laptop user you can skip this step.

    If you Are using Desktop computer Then you might get No Boot Device Available message if your components aren’t connected properly. Especially if the SATA cable or power Cable not connected properly with the HDD this might cause the problem. We recommend to first check and fix this problem. To do this you need to power down your PC, disconnect it from the power outlet and open your computer case. After doing that, be sure to check all SATA cables and make sure that they are tightly connected to your motherboard and to your hard drive. Several users reported that this problem occurred because their SATA cables weren’t firmly connected to their motherboard. After connecting everything properly, the issue should be completely resolved.

    Check HDD for loose cable connection

    Change Boot Order (Set Hard Drive As First Boot Device)

    As Discussed, An incorrect boot order can mislead your computer to boot from an unbootable hard drive or device. Which may Cause boot error no boot device has been detected please press any key to reboot. So Access BIOS Setup by following steps and change Set hard drive is the first of the boot order.

    Enter the BIOS interfaceRestart computer and tap “F2” (Del, F12, F8 As perform Device manufacturer support ) key continuously at startup. In the “BIOS Setup Utility” option, switch to “Boot”. Now press the “↑↓” keys to modify the bootable disk as the first boot device. After that, press “F10” to save the changes And Restart the computer. This time System Try to Boot from the proper disk drive which may solve no boot device found error.

    Set Hard Drive As First Boot Device

    Fix boot information of your system

    Sometimes damaged MBR can cause No Boot Device Available message to appear. Also, You may get a “No bootable device found” error when the boot information, such as BCD (Boot Configuration Data) or MBR (Master Boot Record) of your system is corrupted.

    To fix the issue, you need to start Command Prompt from Advanced options ( Windows 8.1 and 10 users ).

    Advanced options

    If you are Windows 7 user then boot windows form an installation media, if you don’t have then create one by following the link. Select the language and region, and then click on Repair your computer. select the Windows 7 system from the list of the Operating system. Then click on Next. After that click on Command Prompt.

    windows 7 Advanced command prompt

    Now In Command Prompt, type the following lines one by one and press Enter on your keyboard after each. (If you are asked whether you want to add a new installation to boot list, press Y and then press Enter.)

    • bootrec /fixmbr
    • bootrec /fixboot
    • bootrec /scanos
    • bootrec /rebuildbcd

    Fix Bootrec Errors

    If those commands don’t work, try using these commands instead:

    • bcdedit /export C:BCD_Backup
    • c:
    • cd boot
    • attrib bcd -s -h -r
    • ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    • bootrec /RebuildBcd

    After running these commands, check if your problem is resolved.

    Check And Fix Disk Drive Errors

    After fixing BCD (Boot Configuration Data) or MBR (Master Boot Record) by performing the above commands. Now Run CHKDSK command to Check And fix disk Drive Error and make sure The Drive Error, Bad Sectors not causing the issue. You Can Run CHKDKS commandto Check the Drive Errors And add some extra parameters to force chkdsk to fix the Errors. To do this on the same Command prompt type command chkdsk /f /r /x And hit the enter key to execute the command.

    This will scan and check the disk drive for errors. If found any the chkdsk utility try to repair them if possible. Wait until 100% complete the repair process.

    Repair Corrupted System Files using SFC Utility

    After Run CHKDSK command Again Run the System File Checker Utility To make sure any corrupted, missing, damaged system file not causing the Boot error “no boot device found”. Running SFC utility scan system for missing corrupted system files, If found any the utility repair /restore them from a compressed folder located %WinDir%\System32\dllcache.

    To run the System file checker utility On Same Command prompt ( which you opened from Advanced options ) Type command sfc /scannow and hit the enter key to execute the command. Wait until 100% complete the process, After that Restart windows. I hope This time windows Start normally without any Boot problem such as no boot device found, No Boot Device Available etc.

    Note: If the SFC scan results windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them, Then run the DISM command (dism /online /Cleanup-image /restorehealth). Which repair the system image and enables SFC to do its job, you can read more about DISM command from here.

    Change Primary partition as active

    If perform Above solutions Still getting no boot device found, No Boot Device Available etc ? Then Try to Change the primary partition of your hard drive as active partition. If due to any reason ( by mistake ) primary partition(where the operating system is installed) of your hard drive is inactive that may cause No bootable device error.

    To fix this Again open command prompt from advanced options then perform command below one by one and hit the enter key to execute the command.

    DiskPart list disk select disk 0 list volumeselect volume 3 ( Select the Os isstalled Volume numbber,for you the voulume numver may different ) active exit

    Change the Active Partition in Windows

    Note: Always mark the System Reserved Partition (generally 100MB) active and if you don’t have a System Reserved Partition then mark C: Drive as the active partition.

    Close the command prompt and restart your PC. Most of the time, this method was able to Fix No Boot Device Available Error Windows 10, 81 and 7 PC.

    Reinstall your operating system

    It is also possible that the corrupted files in your operating system cause the error. You can try resetting your system and see if this fixes the problem. To do so, you can use your Windows installation media to reinstall your operating system. hope the error will no longer occur on your computer after the reinstallation.

    These are some most applicable solutions to fix windows Boot Device errors such as no bootable device detected – Insert Boot disk And press any key. No Boot Device Available – Strike the F1 key to retry boot, F5 to run the setup utility.no boot device found press any key to reboot the machine etc on windows 10, 8.1 and win7.  I hope to apply these solutions to fix this no bootable device detected, No Boot Device Available or no boot device found error.

    You wrote:

    After that I created a partition using

    The command you specified did not create a partition; instead, it marked your existing first partition as a BIOS Boot Partition, which GRUB uses by writing part of itself directly to the partition, without using a filesystem. Thus, when you re-installed GRUB, you trashed your existing first partition! That partition was probably either your EFI System Partition (ESP), where your EFI boot loaders go, or perhaps some other Windows-specific boot partition.

    There's a slim chance that you can overcome this problem by resetting the type code on your first partition and using or some other filesystem-recovery tool on it; but you may need to re-create the partition's contents from scratch. This is possible, but tricky. I don't have a URL handy to a procedure, but try a Web search on terms like "fixing damaged EFI System Partition." The ESP is basically a FAT partition that holds EFI boot loaders, which are ordinary files, so the recovery procedure will involve laying down a fresh FAT filesystem and restoring the files by copying them from another source or using a Windows recovery tool.

    As a meta-comment, installing Linux in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode to a computer that already has Windows running in EFI/UEFI mode is doing things the hard way, at best. It's much better to install both OSes in the same mode, as described in this page I wrote. If you hadn't trashed your ESP, it would be relatively simple to add an EFI boot loader for Linux to the ESP to work around your initial problem, but now you've got to restore your Windows boot loader, and possibly adjust your boot loader NVRAM entries.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Maybe I misunderstood the question. Are you trying to boot off the USB?

    If not, press the boot menu key at start up and choose the hard disk.

    I'm afraid I haven't studied that error a lot.
    You can do some research yourself with Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: Windows root\system32\hal.dll - Google Search.
    If you can't find a suitable fix then start a new thread, since this one started as a booting from USB question, and put hal.dll error at startup error as the title.

    Sorry, I couldn't be of more help.
    Good luck.

    The case: No boot device available error in Windows 7

    "Help! I have a Dell Inspiron laptop that Windows 7 installed on and it always works well. But I receive “No boot device available-insert boot disk and press any key” prompt when I start up it. Then, I press F1 to restart my computer but this message still appears. What happened to my computer? How can fix “No boot device available” error in Dell computer and boot it normally? Any advice will be appreciated!"

    Possible reasons for  “No boot device available” error in Windows 7/8/10

    Boot from a disk that doesn’t contain an operating system.

    MBR or boot sector on the bootable disk is corrupted.

    After realizing the possible causes for boot device not available, it’s time to see how to fix it using effective methods.

    Fix 1. Check boot order and reset BIOS settings to default

If the disk that you boot the computer from is not the right one, press “+” or “-” to set the bootable hard drive as the first in the boot order. After that, save changes and restart the computer to see whether the error disappears. If the error still exists, try to reset BIOS to default settings by steps given below:

    1. Turn off your computer and wait for a while.

    2. Restart the computer and press a certain key to enter the BIOS Setup menu.
