Hi! I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 3541 about two years ago. About a year ago the screen froze, so I force shut down the laptop. When I turned it on, I was met with following message:
"Internal hard disk drive not found
To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive.
No bootable devices-- strike F1 to retry boot, F2 enter setup menu, F5 enter PSA
So... I reseated it multiple times and nothing...
So what now? I'm not really a computer expert, all I really can do is replace the hard drive.
I recently found my computer again and would like the restore it. What do I do?
It came with Windows 8.1 already installed on it, then I upgraded to windows 10 if that helps at all
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you did not prepare a bootable Windows 10 install media set, you can do that from here:
Once that's done, replace the drive and use the flash drive you create to reload Windows 10 onto the system. Since it has a digital entitlement (having been activated before), that should be sufficient to activate Windows at the end of the installation.
