Steps to resolve ‘Samsung Series 5 BIOS not detecting any bootable devices’ issue
Is your Samsung Series 5 laptop BIOS (Basic Input / Output system) not able to detect any bootable device while trying to install any new software using USB drive? Such instances usually occur due to either of the cases:
- The right mode to enter the BIOS setup is not selected.
Fix: Different BIOS manufacturers for different computer brands have discrete ways to enter the process. So, select the relevant one to resolve this error.
- Fast booting in BIOS and UEFI to boot from a USB drive options are enabled.
Fix: To resolve the process and to enable the BIOS to allow booting using any bootable device, disable these two options.
For a step-by-step process, perform the following steps on your Samsung Series 5 notebook:
- Hit the ‘Esc’ button to open up the ‘Boot’ menu (it should be done just after rebooting your laptop as soon as the display flashes or if it does not works, reboot your PC and press the ‘ESC’ key repeatedly immediately after turning on the system).
- Now, click on the ‘Disable’ option to disable ‘Fast boot in BIOS/UEFI to boot from a USB drive’.
- Now, press the “F2” button to open up the BIOS/UEFI Setup and change the boot device sequence.
- To change the device sequence, go to the ‘Boot’ tab and select ‘Boot Device Priority’.
- Now, press ‘Return’, ‘Up/Down’ to highlight F6/F5 to change the priority.
- Select the device listed on the sub-menu with other hard drives.
- Save the changes and Exit.
