Are you sure the bootloader installed correctly?

Also, in the bios, what is the drive type set to?  I've seen that happen 
on a Lenovo when the drive type is set to AHCI.  Changing it to either 
legacy or normal (don't recall which one) allowed the machine to boot 
from the hard disk without issue.
