Hello, I have some troubles with my Packard Bell ZEA (EasyNote).
1) The internal HD died.
2) I replaced it by an 1Tb Thoshiba.
3) The notebook won't start on an Install DVD (Linux or Windows)
4) I installed Windows on another computer on the HD and moved it again in the PB.
5) The PB recognize the HD but says "No Bootable Device"
I don't know what to do, if someone could help me, I do not have any recovery disks or backup since the original HD died.

You can't get around the problem it by using another PC to install Windows then moving HDD back to your Easynote -- it doesn't work like that, all the hardware on the two computers is entirely different.

To boot from DVD on your Easynote, insert DVD then turn laptop off.

Turn it on it whilst keeping F8 key pressed - - a boot device menu should appear.

Use arrow keys to highlight the CD/DVD drive, then press <Enter>.
