Boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk. Hard disk - (3F0)

HP EliteDesk 800 G3 SFF and 800G4 SFF

We are seeing machines showing this error in different locations in the Asia region.  The machines were inactive for a while and failed at the start-up.   Our Users encounter the failure upon returning to their locations after local movement control restrictions were eased or lifted.  

 

Upon power ON  the machine and let it boot it will show "Boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk. Hard disk - (3F0) >>Start PXE over IPv6 or IPv4We

We run diagnostic -and the result "no hard drive installed"
