what does boot device not found mean?

HP Recommended

Hp Inrel Premium with Windows 7. The product key is [edited]. It says Boot Device Not Found and Please install and operating system on your Hard Disk. Hard Disk (3F0) F2 System Diagnostics. What does this mean? How do I fix it? Please Help?

Thanks!

Hi,

 

The failure 3F0 means your Hard Drive has Failed & needs to be replaced.  If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced.

 

Please do a HDD self test first:

 

1. Restart the computer.
2. Keep tapping the F10 key when the HP logo appears. This will take you to Bios Setup Utility.
3. Select the Diagnostic tab.
4. Select the "hard drive self test" option and press enter to perform the test.
Note: This test takes arond 40 minutes or more.

Pass - The hard drive is not damaged.
Fail - the hard drive is damaged and may need to be replaced.

Regards.

BH

What if instead of saying that the hardadrive failed the test, it says: SMART Check: Not Installed as well as Long DST: Not Installed
