As a consequence; when you turn on your computer, BIOS tries to find operating system on your hard drive to boot. If it fails to recognize operating system, it shows an error message indicating that there is no operating system. However, you can easily get rid of the error message by reinstalling operating system. But what about the data stored in it? Is it gone forever??? No it is not!!! You can get it back by using efficient hard drive data recovery software.
