"Reboot and Select proper Boot Device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot Device and press a key"
I have tried the following with no success;
- Tried putting a windows disc in and tried pressing all the F keys, even tried then with FN pressed
-Tried a usb keyboard in case the keyboard was damaged
with the new hdd, it would get to safe mode or even enter windows cos I guess one of them still had windows on it.
But I still Can't get into the bios nor boot selection.
Now is this a security feature with this laptop or am I missing something...
If you guys help me, I'm putting a $5-$10 donation to this site depending if this guy is willing to pay for the repair for this
I've spent hours and I'm out of ideas
I think this model from toshiba has been craptastic during the past few months when they upgraded the bios and had stuff go wrong..
You could try this, put the new hdd back, start off with a formatted flash drive containing windows 7 or vista if you'll be using it.
Reboot the machine with the flash drive in, once going past the bios splash screen, hit esc or or f12.
Tha should bring up a boot order menu and you tell it which drive you want to pull up first.
May I ask which bios version you have for the laptop ?
