HP Pavillion l 17-g192dx: not found boot device, please install an operating system on your hard drive.


Hello, so I performed a reset that restore my computer to factory settings, I have chosen to erase all files. I've done this before, and everything went well. What was going on, it was my disc useage was at 100% a lot and that something was wrong with my computer then I factory reset it. While the factory reset is 44% in "resetting your computer" and the next thing I knew I had 2 options, stop or start with advanced options. Well, I chose to stop it, 5 minutes later, I turned it back on and I ran a SMART check has no that was the ID # 9367LW-86J89N-MFPX7G-60BR3 followed by the product id that is shown above. He said that when I start to Boot Device not found, please install an operating system on your hard drive. Followed by the hard drive (3FO), I can only click f2 and it gives me the link to visit the Help Center. The computer saying that it did not have an operating system was not the first alert, that I had, it was something else saying there was an error of hard disk which then became not having not not an operting system. I tried to go to f11 and go in this way, but regardless of what it always comes back to the screen that shows the found boot device, please install an operating system. Help, please! Thank you. in advance.


He was sent to HP they will solve this problem, my warrienty coverd.

    So I did test drive (fast) and it said that I had no smart check and short installed drive. Then I did the extended test and it said that I had installed no smart check and long DST. Please help I don't want to have to buy a new computer

    Spoiler (Highlight to read)

    Don't know - there is not a single "standard" price

    Also, if your PC can boot from USB, HP sometimes has the possibility to order a USB instead of DVD.

    And if HP stocks are no longer the media, other locations could - and they have different charges.

    I have heard ranges from $ 10 to $ 40.

    Good luck

  • HP mini 110-3100: not found boot device


    Why when I reboot my hp mini 110-3100, he says this not found boot device, please install an OS on your hard drive. so I will try to run the hard drive test and it say the drive does not exist.

    How I solve this problem?

    I try to format it, but I can't. Please help me. Thank you

    It seems that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. Of course, it is possible that he has lost all simply a secure connection if the Mini is transported/rushed. Remove the Panel covering the hdd and check it - unplug, plug back in.

  • more old hp probook 6560 b: not found boot device.

    I had planned to donate old cell phone. I made a secure erase. Since then, I can't phone to start towards the top/boot. Just on the black page no boot device install the operating system on your hard drive. (3forget)
    I thought that to see an error that says media test failure too.
    There is no option to click on preform a hard
    I have reset everything to default settings.
    I ran the tests happened.
    I reinstalled the hard drive.
    There is no option to click on system restore.
    any advice?


    So it's my opinion that you have wiped the system, or at least access to the system and probably deleted all data of the partition and its content.

    So it is cleared safely but there its usefulness to a novice is now questionable.

    So if you are donating to an organization I expect they could install a new OS etc and everything will be fine.

    If in doubt please ask.

  • Not found boot device. Hard drive (3F0)


    I have a HP Pavilion 15 laptop n203ed 8 64-bit windows-based and have updated my bios.

    About a month ago, I bought an SSD and improved my HARD drive, it worked fine until yesterday, I started getting the error message "not found boot device. Hard drive (3F0) '. I get this error message whenever I restart the laptop, but when I load the bios, change nothing and then tap on save and exit suddenly it restarts again the error disappeared and everything goes back to normal. Until this happens again in a few hours. I've had 4 times now.

    My question: is this a hardware problem or software, I would return the SSD? or could it be something else?

    Thanks in advance.
