    I have just upgraded the motherboard and CPU on my son's PC. As advised before starting we did a full system back-up.

    All looked well until we got past the initial BIOS setup screens and now we just have the following message:

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

    Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"


    The PC has a the hard drive that is came with and an additional one that we added for extra storage out of an old computer a couple of years ago. Do you think that if I disconnect the spare hard drive the PC will find my Windows 10 operating system on the in-built one?


    Thanks for your advice.

    :)
