Boot Device not found

HP notebook

I’m trying to assist My mother who owns a HP notebook that recently failed to boot, giving the message “boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk. Hard disk (3F0).”  I did the troubleshooting steps online and could not find the optane file. Is there something I can download via USB to install and remedy this? The laptop is out of warranty and the laptop passed a hard drive test.
