first of all I want to thank you for having the time to read this.
my question is simple, I built a computer about a week ago, everythings is working fine. I installed windows 8 in a 2tb hdd. both hdd and optical drive are detected etc. but today I was using the computer as usual, left it alone for a couple of mins and when I came back I saw this:
No bootable device insert boot disc and press any key error
I decided to restart and everything started to work the way It used to, I checked bios and hdd is detected and working as usual. its been a couple of days sinc that happened and everything is perfectly fine. could it be that it was just a one-time error and it will not happen again? What do you guys think its the problem? faulty hdd, bad win 8 installation? thank you in advance.
could be a few issue that are simple. hard drive firmware has a bug when your system tried to go into sleep mode..it did not power down right. your mb bios needs to be patched for windows 8. i know my asus sabertooth has a few windows 8 patches for the bios. there a bug between the mb sleep state and windows power management. may want to try turn off the mb power savings and see if windows 8 bug. most good pc bios have a delay set in them to let the hard drive spin up and reconect to the sata chipset. (check to see that your hard drive connected to the intel/amd chipset and not the 3 party chipset.)
