I am getting message "Please install and operating system on your hard disk. hard Disk -(3F0)
F2 System diagnostics

Well I have no Win7 disk, it came preinstalled.
What I should do?

Most likely you hard drive has failed.
Replace the hard drive with a new one of the same size (Gigabytes) or larger, choose a hard drive that is NOT "Advanced Format"
Then use the HP recovery discs to reinstall Windows.

You can order HP recovery media here, or call HP on the phone to order 1-800-474-6836
If HP no longer has Recovery Media for your model, order them here
