no boot disk has been detected

I just received my HP Touchsmart 520 1010t desktop.  When I turn it on, I receive the following message:

 

No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.

 

What do I do?

Are you able to enter the BIOS?

Is the hard disk seen by the BIOS as present?

Did you make a recovery disk set?

 

I note that your PC is pretty new and is covered by warranty. 


Kind regards,

Re: no boot disk has been detected

Thank you for your reply.  I was not able to get into the BIOS at all.  I finally reached tech support after being transferred a couple of times, then they apparently hung up or I lost connection.  I did get someone a half hour later and am returning the unit to HP.

 

I don't see a white star to click in order to give kudos to you.
