@bpkmm, welcome to the forum.

 

This message is telling you that an operating system can't be found.  Normally, this is because the hard drive is failing.  You can test the drive using SMART from the BIOS.  Here is a guide to help you.  If it has failed you should replace it with a drive the same size or larger to assure that the Recovery media will work properly.
