I have an asus r503u with windows 8 64 bit. This is the third asus ive had this happen to and would appreciate some help.
I turn the laptop off (4 days old) and when i go to turn it back on i am shown a page that says computer needs repaired missing system32 files. After trying to find the system restore hotkey and booting in safemode i am brough to a black screen with white letters that say the following.
Reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key
Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083)

check cable connection!
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
These messages keep alternating and repeating when i press a key
So i decide to just stick my windows disk in and reinstall, but there is no recognized hard drive to install it to
Bios does not recognize it either
what could this be and how do i fix it?
I realize that the seemingly most likely problem is a loose HD connection or Dead HD but i can assure you this isnt the case as the other two laptops ive had this happen to were fixed by a professional (not an option this time around)
Any help, ideas, or solutions would be greatly appreciated!'
If this too vague or lacking information you might find helpful please feel free to ask me and ill provide it
