Hi,

Can you go into your bios (press F2 or Delete while the laptop is booting up) and look for the Boot Device Priorities.

If your hard drive is not at the top of the priority list, use the instructions to make it so, and then try loading up the laptop then.

So harddrive/ssd is #1 in the priority list?
Try making ODD #1 and then HDD/SDD #2, then booting up your pc

It may look different visually but there should be a way to change the list and the buttons to do so should be listed somewhere on the screen
