Hi,

 

Please follow these instructions:

Worse case, you have to replace your HDD.

 

Good luck.

I am getting the message on my laptop: boot device not found please install an operating system on your hard disk. I don't even understand what this means!

Re: how to install an operating system on your hard disk,

Hi GraceD29. What is the model number of your notebook? What version of Windows is installed?

Re: how to install an operating system on your hard disk,

Hi brandon522, welcome to the HP Forums. Typically HP computing products come with a means to create Recovery Media. You can create a disk or USB drive, or if the original hard drive is still intact you can recover from the hidden partition using the HP Recovery Manager.

Here is an example of the HP Recovery process using Vista: Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows Vista)

You can refer to my previous post if you need help finding a notebook model number, or if you have a desktop you can refer to this document for instructions: How Do I Find My Desktop Model Number?

 

Let me know if you need more information.
