My wife and I bought these HP all in one 24-f0xx in July 2019, now my wife's All in one won't Boot and has the Boot device not found , Please install an operating system on your hard drive, hard drive (3f0) error. We tried the virtual agent and that did not work, because the solutions given did not look like what we were seeing on the bios setup. We had a Bios update last week. The computer worked fine for a few days and today it just wont find the hard drive. The PC is still under warranty what should I do?

Welcome back to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
Maybe the BIOS update has something to do with your problem.
Contact HP (Link) for warranty support or install a different drive. Then see if the BIOS detects this drive.
The current drive may have failed.

No I did not I brought it back to get repaired, it's been two weeks now and I'm still waiting to get a call from Staples, that they got it back from HP. I've bought a camera, two ink jet printers from HP and those worked very well, but the computers I bought from them were always crap. And it takes months to get service. Could not get help nowhere from HP not on this community, not with there support assistant software. So I brought it back to Staples. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. So I guess what I'm saying is I'm not buying anything else from HP. I'm in electronics and HP has a very good reputation with their electronic equipment. Can't say the same with their computer. Good luck!

I just got my unit working. Using it right now .
Got a download link from this site from Grzwacz.
I downloaded Windows 10 to a usb stick using my old computer.
took about 30 minutes or so.
plugged the usb stick in my All-in-One and turned it on.
It started up and loaded windows 10 and took about 30 minutes to get everything working again.
I'm Very happy so far.
Hope it stays working.
