HP 14” notebook. I install Manjaro Linux with complete SSD erase first. No matter what I change in BIOS, on start up, error:

Boot Device Not Found

Please install an operating system on your hard drive

Hard Disk - (3F0)

Please advise how to fix.

HP 14-DQ0011DX. I downloaded Manjaro from a mirror I believe. Put on a Sandisk USB stick via Universal USB Installer Penlinux. The only was to install was to erase SSD first. The 3 other options weren't allowed. I've gone thru every BIOS option I can imagine with no help. SSD scan returns no problems. All Youtube tutorials address this to return to Windows. Because I've had many problems with Windows since being in a motel in January, I tried to install Manjaro.

So you changed distros from Manjaro to Zorin Lite.
Did you use the same usb stick?
Did you use Etcher or Universal USB Installer Penlinux?

Used new USB stick vía UUI Penlinux. Strange thing, though. The pre-install scan stated 3 errors. So, I install with WiFi on. And it seems to work ok. I tend to believe Windows factory installed drives don’t always play well with a Linux “erase and install”.

Thanks for the update.

In the future you may want to verify the .iso file; it will save you from having headaches.

Ok. But, I’m not sure how to verify an .iso file.
There should be somewhere on the page that you download your .iso from will provide you with a md5sum or shasum number. It's usually a long number to compare.
If the signatures do not match the .iso is likely corrupt.

if you downloaded :

manjaro-gnome-21.0.7-210614-linux510.iso

to your home directory then open a terminal :

make sure from the terminal it working from home:

cd ~

//see whats there

ls --color

//you should see output of manjaro-gnome-21.0.7-210614-linux510.iso in list. To generate a sha1 type in terminal:

Code:
sha1sum   manjaro-gnome-21.0.7-210614-linux510.iso
compare the number generated to that on website; they quote :

SHA1: e49632759cc40064383420e8bafa7164ff3fa28e


same idea for alternative Desktop iso

The easiest way is to verify an ISO file is to use GTK Hash. @wizardfromoz posted a detailed tutorial on GTKHash here on this forum:
