Hi all, here's one for you: my in-laws' relatively new PC has decided to throw up an interesting fault where it comes up with the 'no boot device found' message when you try to turn it on.

However, if you catch it before it attempts to boot, enter the boot menu and then exit it without making any changes then it boots just fine.

They're running Windows 10 (recently upgraded from Windows 8) and I think it was happening before the upgrade but I can't be 100% sure.

Any initial ideas on what could be going on?

Many thanks.

Moved from 'BSODs, crashes etc' to Win 10.

Have you tried System Restore to a point before the problem started?

Have you ensured that the BIOS/UEFI, the chipset, and the storage drivers are fully updated to W10 compatible versions?

Have you tried Startup Repair?

Have you tried a Reset using the Keep My Files option?
