Boot device not found hard disk (3FO)

HP Recommended
Hp pavillion

I just bought an HP pavillion manhattan gold i7, when I turned it on for the first time, it says "boot device not found"

Please install an operating system on your hard disk

Hard disk (3FO).


I tried reading to the support page but nothing resolves my problem.

Please help. Thank you

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


Did you buy a brand new Desktop or Laptop? A product number only would help to identify your HP product.


Boot device not found usually means:

No operating may be installed,

The storage device is faulty,

Or the storage device may not be connected correctly to power or the to motherboard (data).


I would return to the seller. This is especially true if you have a Laptop or Notebook PC.
