Error message when I start my laptop
Boot device not found
Please install an operating system on your hard disk
HARD DISK ((3F0)
F2 System diagnostic
I am forced to restore default bios but sometimes I am unable to enter into the bios. Only F2 is accessible
I found many softpaq on hp support but not applicable for my model : hp probook 470 G0
Does it exist a softpaq to repair the 3F0 error on to a hp probook 470G0 ?
I already :
-updated the bios
-replace the hdd by a ssd disk
-replace the memory
-reinstalled many times Windows 10
-Scanned the disk about viruses
Thanks in advance

@Morgan2021 -- the BIOS assigns labels, such as "3F0" to the first SATA device, and "3F1" to the second SATA device (usually the CD/DVD). So, something is wrong with the first SATA device:
- data cable is not connected to the motherboard
- data cable is not connected to the disk-drive
- data cable needs to be replaced
- power cable is not attached to the disk-drive
- try a different power-cable
- dead disk-drive
> replaced the hdd by a ssd disk
That should have resolved your issue.
If you connect that HDD to a different computer, is that disk-drive "detected" when connected?
> Boot device not found
How can you install Windows, if the device was not found?
Enter BIOS SETUP, and add the SSD to the list of "bootable" devices.
