I received an error message when I tried to boot up my Computer, "no boot drive has been detected".

 

What should I do to get WIN 7 back to operating properly?

Hi :welcome: to BleepingComputer,

 

Make sure you don't have any flash drive or external Hard Drive connected because that error could be the BIOS trying to boot from other device instead of the internal HDD.

As mentioned above, that is the most common occurrence, when you have a USB device, usually a flash drive connected and the computer tries to boot from it.

If this isn't your problem, please post the make and model of your machine.


All is well in Paradise.

If the hdd is the first device in the boot order you should only get this message if there is a problem with the operating system or the hdd.

Enter your BIOS and check the BOOT order. Your HDD should be first priority. You can properly enter your BIOS by pressing F2 or del when your turn on your computer.


Best regards

The boot order in the BIOS can be set so that the first boot device is either the HDD which has the operating system installed on it or the DVD/CD drive.

 

If the BIOS boot order has the DVD/CD drive designated as the first device and the HDD the second device in the boot order it the BIOS will look for a bootable disc, if one isn't found the BIOS will move on to the second device, this would be the HDD in the order I suggested.

 

If either of these choices have been implemented you will not need to change the boot order.

1. Change the boot order.

If that dosen't work then Windows 7 has been complety removed from the HDD/SSD. 

But a little bit that is keeping my mind is that it says "NO BOOTABLE MEDIA FOUND"

if windows 7 was complety removed from the HDD/SSD then it would say example.sys or example.dll is missing windows cannot boot up.
