Yesterday I was rendering some models on Autodesk Fusion 360, when my HP OMEN 15 suddenly froze then went to a blue screen. At first, I was getting the "BIOS Recovery Files Not Found" error, but now I keep getting the "Boot Device Not Found - Please install an operating system on your hard disk" (Boot Device 3F0) error. On top of these, when I run a hard drive extensive test, the Long DST comes up as "NOT AVAILABLE", which I'm told is because my hard drive needs replacing.
I feel as though I've tried everything. My BIOS version is at 220.127.116.11, and I can't find if there are any updates for my OMEN laptop. Please help in resolving this issue - and thank you in advance.

Thank you for the response. After trying the key combination method, I was told the BIOS recovery files could not be found. Because of this, I created a BIOS recovery USB and used that to update the BIOS. The BIOS is now updated, but I'm still getting the 3F0 error. I'm getting the hard drive looked at today, so hopefully that fixes the problem.

Bios recovery is done, you're on the right way ...
(1) Test your hardware Using the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI)
--->>> Perform <all> tests
See section <Running HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI tests when Windows doesn't start>
See how it works:

I ended up just buying a new SSD, actually upgrading from 512G to a terabyte. This solved my issue, so my guess is that my hard drive was causing problems in the first place - most likely from either being full or just dying after two years of usage.
Either way, I've resolved the issue, so thank you for the feedback!
