That doesn't sound like an authentic Windows message. What is the exact error message you're seeing?

What happened immediately preceding this error? Did you make any changes? No Windows OS should automatically update.

Perhaps you can provide some more information so we might be able to help you.

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

As far as I know, there was no automatic upgrade from Win7 to Win8. Did you mean Win10?

I agree with Jennifer that the error message seems odd. I'm guessing it's more like "no bootable device - insert boot disk". If that's the case, your hard drive may have died or somehow come loose within the laptop.

Did this happen immediately after the update?

You might want to check the support page for your model to see if restore/recovery disks are available.

Maybe it was the Windows 8 to 8.1 Update that was installed. If so then it was a few years late.
The machine is listed as coming with Windows 7. Windows 10 free upgrade was for a while a click away on many desktops for a year but should not be showing it any longer.
We do need more detailed information.

All I remember is that I accidentally removed a USB SD card while booting and ever since I had this problem.

would you advice to check the hardware for a loose hard drive?

It's trying to boot from a network connection which is usually the last option in the boot order after the hard drive, optical drive and possible USB drives. You can go into cmos/bios setup and make sure the hard drive is properly identified and first or second in the boot order but as already mentioned the drive may be bad.

If you have a disk in the cd/dvd drive go ahead and remove it to see if that's where the clicking is coming from as a hard drive clicking almost always means it's bad.

If there is a disk in the CD drive then the system might be looking for the boot on the CD which is not there. Remove any disk and try again.
If there is no CD in the drive then as mentioned, make sure the BIOS is set to the proper drive and it is set as bootable.
If it is the hard drive then you will be replacing it.
It could not hurt to tap F8 at boot up repeatedly to access the advanced boot options. If you get it choose "Last Good Configuration" (if available) or "Safe Mode with Networking". If you get into Safe Mode then do a System Restore to a date when all worked well.

Have you ever made a "repair CD" for Windows 7?

There is a repair disk available here, but haven't tried this yet:

If the repair disk is not working, burn a windows 7 ISO on DVD and startup from that CD. Go to the repair option.

I'm with Dave. Sounds like the HDD has gone bad. Go with his suggestion to see if the drive is seen in the BIOS.

Is your system still under Warranty?
