Boot Device Not Found Please install an operating system on your hard disk

HP Omen Obelisk

Hello so Everytime I turn on my PC it comes up with Boot device not found please install an operating system on your hard disk. So first I ran a quick hard drive check an everything passed. After that I tried going into BIOS and enabling legacy which did not work and said please install an operating system on your hard disk. What should I do now?

That "quick check" only confirms that the disk-drive is successfully able to read & write files.

 

It does not confirm that all the necessary files to launch and run Windows are properly available on the disk-drive.

 

Do you have a copy of the Windows Installation Media? If not, see: Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

Boot from the media, instead of from your disk-drive, and choose "Repair", instead of "Install".

That "repair" may work to fix the missing/corrupt files that Windows requires.
