Your computer runs an automatic drive detection process during the boot sequence, allowing you to see which drives are connected to the system. A “no drive found” error can occur when the drive has failed, the port on the motherboard is inactive, or the cable in the system has failed. While there’s nothing you can do about the first potential cause, you can always solve the others. Things You’ll Need
IDE or SATA

Turn off the computer and unplug it.
Remove the screws on the back of the case and pull out the case side panel.
Disconnect the cable from the back of the drive and the motherboard.
Replace the cable with a new IDE or SATA cable (depending on car type) and connect it to the alternate IDE/SATA port on the motherboard. This solves the last two reasons behind a missing drive error, allowing you to see if your car is broken.
