I had bad sectors in my HDD and i copied all my data to my exxternal HDD. Then i was running Partation Guru to find out the errors it scanning for errors i went outside when i came back pc was restarted and was showing this message" No bootable device--Insert boot disk and press any key".

And then i tried to insall windows 7 but it doesn't show the HDD there. I was googling and found something about "ListParts by Farbar" i scanned and it gave me a Result.txt file but the foruim where i read about it i am not able to post the log file there.

Sounds like the the hard drive died. You have a couple options; remove the hard drive and test it from an external source such as a desktop computer with available sata ports, or you could try booting from a USB or CD into ubuntu just to make sure your other hardware is working as intended. if none of that works i'd suggest buying a new hard drive, if you're trying to save money you could even buy a cheap external USB drive, open it up and take the 2.5inch HDD out and use it. note that those HDDs are normally slow 5400RPM ones. Best of luck.

if it's warrantied - that's what it's warrantied against. send in just the hard drive if you can (consult warranty pamphlet) because i've seen friends of mine get charged a lot more than they should have for "extra" things that "needed repair".. as long as you have your files backed up externally i can't see anything to lose :) best of luck
