Hello I have a dell inspiron 1720 and I have the following message when i turn on the computer: No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics. I guessed it was the HDD it was a WD scorpio 250 GB, I installed a new HDD a seagate momentus 320 GB. And when the computer reboot The same message appears! I plugged the WD scorpio HDD in the hard disk bay 2: the HDD is either not detected.
My concluion is then that perhaps the problem did not comme from the hard disk?
Can the SATA Host adapter (8280 HBM/HEM ICH8M sata ahci controller be the source of the problem? the adpater is supposed to have 3 ports , Is this adapter hardware or software? I am able to boot on a live ubuntu CD, the gparted disk utility does not find my HDDS!
Does someone have an idea or a solution
Have you any idea?
Thanks for your help
