Re: please install an operating system on your hard disk.

Enter BIOS setup by tapping/holding the F10 key immediately after powering on the laptop.Use Diagnostics to test your hdd.

Replace the hard drive with a new one,boot from Recovery Disks to reinstall Windows.

 

You could also try reseating the hdd to be sure it is plugged in securely.
