Boot Device Not found

HP EliteBook 8740p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Umm... When I start my device it goes straight to “HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI” . I exit it and it tries to load then shows:

 

BootDevice Not Found

Please install an operating system on your hard disk. 

Hard Disk – (3F0)

F2 System Diagnostics....

 

So I go back to system diagnostics and  try a quick hard drive check because someone told me to.

After the hard drive check it shows:

SMART Check:  NOT INSTALLED

Short DSI:  NOT INSTALLED.

So I try an extensive check and it shows the same thing. I honestly don't know what to do 😭😭 and I don't want to loose any important file or document.

Please help.

Just out of the blue ... try switching to the legacy BIOS mode instead UEFI (see here, but you need to perform it the other side arround).
