When doing a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04, or any other version of Ubuntu or Linux, after the install you might get your laptop or desktop machine not booting the installed OS, but instead returning “No Bootable Device” message, if laptop is set to UEFI mode.
You might be presented with this image after rebooting your laptop, after a successful OS install.
To resolve this issue reboot your laptop and enter BIOS.
There go to “Select and UEFI file as trusted for executing:” and press Enter key.
Once there choose HDD1.
Then choose <EFI>.
Then you should be able to see <ubuntu> or possibly some other name of your Linux installation.
Then choose shimx64.efi
And then choose Yes when asked if you want to add this file to allowable database.
Reboot your laptop and you should now be able to boot your OS normally.

Hello! My problem is I don’t see the “Select an UEFI file as trusted for executing.” It’s just not there. Could you possibly know of some other way on resolving this?
it might be worded differently, do you know your laptop or computer exact model?
Also, if I remember correctly you need to set bios password for the option to become available.
Seems that might be due to Windows 10 making some UEFI changes?
This post explains a situation similar to that.
