how to solve boot device not found 3f0
The BIOS can be configured to specify the order in which the computer will access available bootable
The most common bootable devices are: Internal Hard Drive, External USB drive, Optical CD/DVD ROM Drive, and Network Adapter.
During the process of checking each device for the required bootable files, if a device fails, the computer verifies that another device is available. If it checks all the listed devices but does not find the bootable files, an error message, like the following, is displayed.
