Acer Aspire One AOD150 Won't Boot

\015 My Acer Aspire One AOD150 netbook randomly didn't fully boot one day and hasn't since then. The following message appears on the screen with the default BIOS settings:Intel UND1, PXE-2.1 (build 082)\015\012\015\012For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v1.0.0.13 (2008/10/15)\015\012\015\012Check cable connection .. !\015\012PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM\015\012No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any keyThe default settings has IDE0 : WDC WD1600BEVT-22ZCT0 listed as the first thing to boot. I've tried disabling the Network Boot but it still says no bootable device. I also tried using FN + F10 and Alt + F10 for D2D Recovery, which the BIOS says is enabled on my computer, and the computer showed no change except for a loud, screeching sound when they're held in. The only other option I have heard of that I haven't tried is downloading a upgraded Bios for Acer; but they say it can cause system failure; and I want to make sure I've exhausted all other options before trying that. Please help.\015

Answers :

The netbook is trying to find a bootable device. It cannot read the hard drive, so it started looking for a network hard drive to boot from, since it did not find that it continued down the line until it asked if you wanted to go to recovery. Most likely you have lost your hard drive and the netbook is simply trying to find the next boot device.
Sorry about the previous comment, was testing....This whole posting systems seems pretty wonky\012
\012I am having this exact same problem on my AOD150 after a BIOS update to v1.13. The drive is recognized and displayed in the BIOS but I still get a "no bootable device" warning. I have tried doing fresh installations of various OSes but the the hard drive does not show up during installation unless I change "SATA Mode" in BIOS to AHCI. Even then I cannot install onto it because it is not bootable in AHCI mode. \012
\012Im thinking I may have to install SATA drivers from the website but I am not sure how this is possible without booting into Windows. \012
\012Any help would be greatly appreciated
