No bootable devices

Dell Inspiron 15 5000

 

Long story short, HDD not installed, bought a new one, same size

 

Run tests, it works, no hardware issues detected, and now no bootable devices found

 

 

Dug around a lot of forum posts. Disabled secure boot, disabled PTT in order to enable Legacy option roms, chose legacy in boot list, and still nothing. It'll either give me the same message or open up what looks like a command prompt version of the bios setup page

 

Don't know if I should even bother with this or just return the hard drive and get a new laptop

Re: No bootable devices

Were you expecting a brand new SSD to just boot up into Windows?

Did you bother reading anything beyond the first few lines?

Why yes I did.

And I did not see any mention of Windows. Do you ?

Did you assume a Dell was running a Mac OS?
