    An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system.

    That's the message. I've tried to restore it from a USB file but it didn't work.

    How it happened.
    I installed a new diver to a scanner, hoping to improve improvement. It didn't.
    I tried to run Macrium to restore to earlier in the day. Corrupt file.
    Rebooted and I got this message.
    Ran diagnostics and all is well. CPU, Hard Drive Connection Test, Boot test, SMART test, Memory test... all Passed.
    I tried to restore from an image on a network, but the machine told me the path was wrong.

    Please help if you've run into this yourself.

  3. An operating system wasn´t found. I tried to make a new clean installation wich should delete everything but the installation couldn´t complete due to an error.

    Hi!

    My win10 installation did work badly. I tried to make a new clean installation wich should delete everything but the installation couldn´t complete due to an error.

    Looks to me that there´s no operatings systemon the disk and the disk is the only drive to select for boot order in BIOS.

    Have I lost my ASUS Eee PC 1225B?

    Do I have to install a new disk with the Windows 10 in the PC?
