Boot drive not detected

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just booted up my computer, when I got the message that there is no boot drive detected. The exact message I get is 'Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.' I use a SanDisk SSD that's a little over 2 years old, so not that old. 

If I go into the boot sequence in the BIOS, it detects the SSD but when I click on it, it says 'no bootable device found'.

How can I fix this? Is my SSD dead?

I doubt it, ssd's are supposed to last longer than hdd, though there is a chance you got a bad ssd. How long ago have you had this problem? Did you recently install windows on it, or did you update windows?

I've never had this problem, until 5 minutes ago. I didn't install Windows recently or did a major update of Windows. I also tried a different SATA and power cable, to no avail.

Did you try moving the ssd to a different computer and check the files to see if they are corrupt?

Did you force boot from this drive, or change your boot order to try making it work?

I don't have a different computer to my disposal at the moment, so I'm not able to test it unfortunately.

Well I can't select the drive as boot device since it says that there's not boot device present. How can I force boot it?

I just tried this and the SSD shows up in device manager. What can I do next?
