I was cleaning my computer earlier today and decided before hand that I needed to take some "safety precautions" with the battery (which is built-in to the computer)... I shut down my computer and stuck a paper clip in the "Emergency Hole" to cut power from the battery. After I finished cleaning the outside of the computer, I plugged the charger into the computer and turned the computer on.. only to receive an "All boot options are tried. Press <F4> key to recover with factory image using Recovery or any other keys for next boot loop iteration." It most likely has to do with me clicking the button in the "Emergency Hole"... my stupidity. I don't want to lose any data on my hard drive or otherwise and I wish to remain using Windows 8.1. What exactly do I have to do to have the computer boot up normally with no data lose?
Here are the Specs
SATA Port 1 Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512 GB
CPU Type: Core(TM) i5-3337U CPU
CPU Speed: 1.80 GHz
CPU VT (VT-X)
Total Memory: 8192 MB
Slot1 Memory: 4096
Slot2 Memory: 4096
BIOS Version: P08ACM
...and its Windows 8 (64-bit)
The Model Number: NP540U4E-K01US
Solved! Go to Solution.
The SSD is recognized under "system info" in the bios configuration and in "Boot option Priorities" I get UEFI IP4(and IP6) Realtek PCIe GBE Famil. However, I must mention that, sometimes, nothing is listed under Boot Option Priorities (and I mean nothing... no Boot Option 1 or 2... not hard drive selection).
