An operating system wasn't found

HP Recommended
Pavilion 20

Hello all!

Please help me with this problem. 

It shows this msg on screen while start up

"An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any devices that don't contain an operating system".

Though there is no external HD connected.

I will be thankful for your help.

Make sure that there is no cd in our cdrom. Bios is geared to boot from it first then your harddrive. If there is no cd in it, then you may need a recovery disk to get things back in order. It sounds like your os boot log is corrupt. Just a thought.
