Good day,

I got a problem with a Samsung NP270E5E laptop.

O/S: Windows 8

Bios problem! The only available device toboot tois the network.

Even if secure boot is disabled it only gives you the choise of network to boot to.

Tried a new harddisk, but it will  ot boot to anything else than then network.

Any other sugestions, as USB device alos not bootable.

The SATA controller pick them up, ad they registar on the CMOS, but not available for boot to.

Reset everything, even took out the cmos battery, and wow that was a story as you hve to disassemble the complete laptop as the batery is under the motherboard.

No luck,

What could have gone wrong?

If you boot into the BIOS enter the boot order you should see your hdd.  If you don't there usually will be a problem with the hdd or its connection.

 

The other possibility would be that you need to replace the CMOS battery.

Yes I can see the hard disk in cmos, and I did replace the battery as well, was a uge story as it is on the reversed side of the mboard so had to strip the laptop tothe bone, nothing resolved the problem. Still only boot device is the network!

Are you sure you are looking at the boot order.

 

You can view images of different versions of the BIOS boot order here.

Hey Sir,

 

I'm not a newby with PC's, Have my own Company since 1997! If you read my initial post, you should see exactly that what you suggest is not available.

I need something to boot to network to reload Bios or something strange like that, as there is no other boor devices than network available!

I don't know f the client who's PC it is maybe did a bios update that went wrong, and or is the MBoard just a poor one that went BAD!

Besides disabling Secure Boot, disable Fast Boot which I believe is under Advanced. Also enable CSM or legacy mode. Save the settings. Enter your CMOS settings again. Enabling CSM may get your boot devices back.
