Please check your boot device and try your call again later

You’ve started your computer this morning, but instead of loading your Windows desktop you see the message “No boot device available.” When you check the BIOS configuration, the drive is not listed. Which of these would be the best next step for troubleshooting this issue?

A) Remove the drive and replace it with a new drive

B) Check the drive’s cables and power connectors

C) Update the BIOS to the latest version

D) Try booting from a LiveCD

E) Pretend it didn’t happen. Walk away, and come back later. Deny the problem ever occurred. Cry a little.
