I Got the No Boot Disk Error in Windows 8, How to Fix

When I woke up, this warning message appeared on my less-than-a-month-old HP Pavilion 23 All-In-One PC. The system would not boot up properly even when I shut it off, waited a while, and restarted. Can anyone tell me what is going on with this computer?

Sometimes, you will see an error message that says when you start the computer, "No boot disk has been detected, or the disk has failed." To help you eliminate this problem, I will teach you two reliable solutions in this guideline. Before taking any action, let's discuss why the boot disk is not detected as follows:

  • Loose or faulty connection
  • Wrong boot order
  • Bad boot sectors and data
  • Corrupted hard drive

Based on the potential reasons, you can apply an all-in-one disk manager - EaseUS Partition Master, which can change the boot order effortlessly and rebuild the corrupted MBR boot drive.

Way 1. Change the Boot Order

Since you can not boot your computer, you can create bootable media on another healthy PC using EaseUS Partition Master:

  • Open EaseUS Partition Master and select the "Bootable Media" toolbar option. Then click "Create bootable media."
  • Click "Next" to confirm the process.

Then, you can change the boot order in the EaseUS WinPE environment:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Partition Master WinPE Edition once you're in the WinPE interface, then go to the "Toolkit" > "Boot Repair."

Step 2. Drag the drive to the top place in the "UEFI items" tab to change the boot order.

Step 3. To apply the actions, click the "Save" button. Your OS is then configured to start from the designated hard drive.

Way 2. Repair MBR

The master boot record located at the beginning of the bootable hard disk can ensure you a smooth boot. However, a corrupted MBR can prevent the system from recognizing the boot information, which will prevent your machine from starting up. Don't worry. EaseUS Partition Master can cover you in this problem. Find detailed steps and other practical solutions in the following article:
