Hi:

 

First run the hard drive diagnostics test in the BIOS (F2) and if the drive passes the test, you can reinstall W10 by using the cloud recovery tool on another Windows PC running W7 64 bit or newer to create the bootable USB recovery drive with.

 

Here is an info link for how to use the HP cloud recovery tool...

Not good.

 

Try the cloud recovery tool and if it also can't find a hard drive, you will probably need to replace the drive unless the motherboard's drive controller has failed.

 

Consult the service manual for your specific model notebook for the hard drive removal and replacement procedure.
