    Are you sure your harddrive(s) are plugged in?

    You can open your computer and make sure the cables going to your harddrive are secure.

    this happened to me. it was an error where the computer had "made up" its own windows installation and set it to primary boot priority, but obviously couldnt find it to boot into. the thing you need to do is to press f2 and then boot into a real OS installation, then while in that Os change the boot order. also it helps to set the wait time before automatically booting to 0 seconds once you have confirmed that the correct OS is set to first priority.
