Please help- Laptop having - "No bootable device -- Insert a boot disc and press any key"

Hi,
Please help me with this. A few days back I accidentally shut down my computer without actually finishing updates on Windows 7. And now my laptop is saying - No bootable device - Insert boot disc and press and key. Please help me. Help is appreciated. Also, I tried Ctrl Alt Delete but it doesn't work.

Thanks

  2. Nope, I do not have any.

    You have lost the boot sector, you will need to do a repair.

    The bit you want is .. Recovery from the startup screen (during system boot)

    and then choose Microsoft Startup Repair Tool

    if that doesn't fix it, use the option System Recovery, which will wipe the disk and put it back to the way it came out of the box the first day you switched it on.
  5. Thank You very much for the solution.
