I have Dell Latitude E4200 (laptop) , since everything is working fine, yesterday I updated my SSD firmware, I download "SAMSUNG_MULTI-DEVICE_A00_R276534.exe"  'http://www.dell.com/...verId=R276534'.


I followed all processes as mention:installation instruction" but after restart my system, I got the message 


"No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot,F2 for setup utility

      Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics.

Bios :
Boot Sequence: Internal HDD
SATA Operation --> ATA/AHCI/IRRT (Tried all mode)
Troubleshoot: I had done.
1. Load Defaults value
2. unplugged and plugged SSD.
3. Boot from Win7 DVD.  
4. F5 onboard Diagnostics
Every times I got same message. 

"No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot,F2 for setup utility

Press F5 to run onboard Diagnostics.


One thing is very strange for me, when I used Flash Drive(USB) with HDD Regenerate for boot purpose only (HDD Repair) Utility. it shows my SSD drive and it can scan. but using same flash drive I also try to reinstall BIOS Firmware (A24) but fail to update, currently I have "A24 Revision" 


Please Can anyone help me! I'll appreciate.


Thanks and Regards

:welcome:   Kashif _Khan,


Yours is another example of how things can go wrong when updating/flashing the BIOS, can I ask why you did the upgrade in the first place, where you already having problems with the computer, the reason that I ask is because the problem could actually be with Windows itself being damaged/corrupt, this would make sense if the SSD is detected by the BIOS and can be scanned.
