I am getting the boot device failure message on my G50

Customer Question

I am getting the boot device failure message on my G50 laptop. I am in the insideH20 setup utility. What are the proper settings for boot mode?

My name is ***** ***** I will help you to the best of my ability. There is no proper setting for your boot start up, you should have it to boot from a floppy drive if it can then the cd, and you should see your harddrive. Likely, that you need to set the boot order but, doesn't mean that it's wrong

In the information page, it says Hard Drive Not Detected. In the Boot Menu someone advised changing boot mode from UEFI to Legacy Support and Saving.

Hey Robert, I need to leave for work in about 40 minutes. 8:50 on EDT.

Thanks, Robert! Unfortunately, I am off to work and will have to bring the laptop to Geek Squad. Hopefully, my $5 deposit covers your one response.

Sorry, I have been rather busy. It could be the harddrive has failed too. $5, for attempting to resolve the issue is fine

I still have not received payment from you

I thought the initial $5 payment would suffice. I will re-visit.
