    "Boot Device Not Found" - but hitting "Enter" afterward PC boots fine


    I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Now whenever I boot up I get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.

    Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. (Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were before set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important.)

    I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help.

    Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option?

    I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.

    VERY MUCH gratitude.

    Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Security Tab, Disable Legacy Mode and Enable UEFI Bios. Also Enable Secure Boot.
    Go to Integrated Peripherals and look for Hard Drive mode, or SATA. Set the SSD for AHCI mode and not Legacy or IDE. Go to the Boot tab, Move SSD to First UEFI Boot Device. Save and Exit.

    i thank you for this - will give it a shot at some boot point.

    one thing I remember is that my UEFI settings were also visible above the Legacy settings - they looked the same except that the Legacy settings referred to "Notebook HD something or other"and the UEFI settings didn't.

    I'll return and thank you again when this works. 'Prec (it)...
