Dell Latitude e6320 no boot device found

My Mum's work was throwing away their old business laptops and my Mum decided to take one home instead.  They wiped the computers completely, and I downloaded a windows 7 ISO but still no boot device is being found.  The computer is set to complete default I haven't changed anything.  My windows 7 disc could be the problem I'm well aware . Could anyone confirm or give me hints on to how I can get this laptop up and running?  Maybe a cleaner version of windows 7 etc.

RE: Dell Latitude e6320 no boot device found

Here is what i get from Dell Latitude E6320 Manual. This helps to me when i also face similar issue as you. So i hope it helps you to.....

Try unplugging all the drives except the hard drive. Remove the cables from the hard drive and the sata connector from the mobo - and then plug them back in the hard drive only - try to see if the BIOS recognizes the drives. If not, replace the SATA cable with another one and try again.

Also - try a different sata port on the mobo.

If this doesn't work - there is a 99% chance you won't be able to do anything with the drive....it would need to go to a data recovery shop.
