    Laptop (Medion Akoya) got dropped, after that I started it and i see Checking Media_ at the top left and it goes to efi network 0 for ipv4 (7C-D3-0A-00-60-39 boot failed and efi network 0 for ipv6 (7C-D3-0A-00-60-39) boot failed. In the bios there is also no hard disk indicated. I already removed the hdd and put it back again, (hdd does make a sound when i'm turning on the laptop) also removed the battery and put it back in. It didn't help anything because i have the same error. Is it possible to get the data back or get the hdd to work? Because it contains important data that I would like to get back. Someone got a tip or something else to recommend? Thanks.

    Well, since it cannot find a boot disk device it is defaulting to a PXE network boot. If the data is very important then don’t screw with the drive and consult a professional data recovery service. If you are feeling adventurous and want to take the chance of possibly damaging it irreparably (if it isn’t already that is) then you can try putting it in a dock and connecting it to another machine to see if it even posts.

    ^^ what he said. except where it says "post" I think he means "see if its even accessible".

    Sorry, tired, that was implied by it passing its power on self tests making it accessible.

    Maybe sounds dumb but, if i buy a SATA to USB cable, would i have access to data? after that i'm just gonna contact a professional data recovery service. Thanks.
