Because the system can't boot an OS.

This could be because the boot order is wrong and has changed. Have you made any changes to your system or to the BIOS?

Or because the hard drive is inaccessible. The reasons for that could be poor power (or loose power cable), not connected to motherboard (loose data cable), failed hard drive, missing Boot Manager, or corrupted file system.

Your first step is to go into the BIOS settings and see if the hard drive is recognized there. If it is, see if it is set as the first boot device.

Second step is to check all cables, then check BIOS settings again.

If all checks out report back and we will take it from there.

Computer booting
I just built a new computer and when it boots it boots to a dos screen saying "no device found" Press F1 to continue. So I press F1 and it boots into Windows. When I get an update that requires a re-boot and I sit at my computer in the morning I have to press F1 so I'm wondering how to fix this?
