Hey All,


I have a Lenovo G570 laptop.


I recently replaced my hard drive with an SSD. Upon turning on the computer, I received the following message:


Check cable connection!

PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM

No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


I inserted an Ubuntu installation disk, but the aforementioned message kept showing up. Any idea what might be happening?

Make sure SecureBoot is disabled in your UEFI settings. Also make sure the SSD is properly connected to the motherboard. If your hard drive was thicker than the SSD then there could be an issue using the same caddy but this isn't always the case.
