No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility

This question is not answered

My Laptop is Dell Latitude D600 (A16) Everytime I tried to power up, Splash screen appears with blue bar and when going into next screen this message appears " No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility "  so I clicked on F1 and this " No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility " kept on coming up over and over again. Any idea how can I fix it?

  • Anything happen just prior to this?  Unit dropped?  Try running diagnostics on hard drive to see what it says.  Remove and carefully reseat hard drive and see if it boots.  Re-run diagnostics... if it says fail, then time to replace.

    I had the same problem, and fixed it by my suprice, by  disable the " Internal HDD" in BIOS. (spacebar)

    When i Esc and saved, Windows starts up like nothingever happened !!!

    If I go back and enable the HDD in BIOS, the same error accours again.

    Have a look in bios. Do you see your hdd volume?

    If it's not then try reseating the drive in the first instance and report back.
