Laptop says boot system is unavailable.

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The last couple times my laptop updated, it became completely unusable. I kept getting stuck in a boot loop. The first time, I was able to reset my computer and it worked fine for a file. This time, that wasn't even working. I was doing a factory reset and I think the process was interrupted because now, I keep getting a screen that says there's no boot system and I'm wondering if there's any way to fix that.

Laptop says boot system is unavailable.

First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).
