Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed

Block Image

When I attempt to power up my Framework laptop, I’m getting the message “Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed / Insert Recovery Media and Hit any key / Then Select ‘Boot Manager’ to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.“

Given that it’s a brand new device, I don’t want to mess around too much, but this suggests to me that the BIOS settings are off. I’m not sure what the hotkey is to launch the BIOS. Suggestions? Thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@elevin0823 did you boot from a bootable disk? I was able to install Fedora from a bootable flash drive without any issue.


Thank you. It seems to be a deeper issue, and I have returned the device and expect a new one soon.

Before it boots open BIOS (F2) and turn Secure boot off.
