Free CompTIA A+ 220-1101 Practice Question

A company's workstation is failing to load the operating system, displaying the message 'Bootable device not found' during startup. This machine uses a mirrored set of two hard drives for redundancy purposes. On inspection, both drives are showing error LEDs. What is the best first step to take in resolving this issue?

  • Format the drives to clear any corrupt partitions that may be preventing boot.

  • Inspect and ensure that all data and power connections to the hard drives are secure.

  • Swap the current cables for new ones without inspecting the existing setup to determine if the cables are indeed the problem.

  • Run a software utility to check the integrity of the drives and attempt to recover lost sectors.
