    Hi

    I have just replaced the screen on my Toshiba Satellite U50D-A laptop myself as they as it was not covered under warranty.

    Now when I power it on it comes up with PXE messages which indicate it is trying to boot from the LAN instead of the HDD.

    HDD is the first boot device in the BIOS

    Possibly the HDD was wiped when it was in for repair and therefore it cannot find a boot partition on it to boot from.

    My initial questions are:

    1. How can I tell if the HDD has a bootable partition on it?
    2 How can I reload Windows 8 onto the HDD if I do not have a CD/DVD drive on the laptop?

    Mant thanks for any help you can give me.

    make sure your HDD is detected on the BIOS if not try to press del or f2 to go into bios then select your HDD as primary HDD press f10 to save changes,,try if you can boot it.. if not then you will have to re install your operating system via bootable flash drive.

    The HDD is recognised in the BIOS as TOSHIBA MQ01ABD075.
