Boot Device Not Found

HP Recommended
Pavillion g6 Notebook PC

I had this laptop completely shut down, unplugged, and packed in my computer bag for two weeks. When I went to boot it up I got the following message and cannot get it to do anything at all!

”Boot Device Not Found

 Please install an operating system on your hard disk.

Hard Disk (3F0)

F2    System Diagnostics

For more information, please visit:

Can anyone help me out? Have I lost the hard drive in this laptop?

Note: This was previously updated to Windows 10, but I am not sure what strength as this was handed down to me from another family member.

Did you press F2 to run the diagnostics?
