Hard drive replacement

HP Recommended
HP Desktop tower 251-a123wb

I replaced the hard drive in my desktop computer. Powering on the computer I receive a message in a blue screen Boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk. Hard Disk (3FO). I have ran a quick test on the new hard drive and it passed. Any help will be so much appreciated. I'm learning.

Hi:

 

Hard drives do not come any operating system or software included.

 

Do you have a way to install W10?

 

If not, using another windows PC, you can make bootable W10 installation media using the Media creation tool at the link below.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

After W10 has completed installing, you can install the drivers and available software from your PC's support page.

Or you can order W10 recovery media from HP at the link below...
