Hi

You must then install an operating system.

Good luck

This is a sticky wicket.

Most all computers sold come with an operating system such as Windows 8.1 or 10, older computers have Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7. Some people who build their own computers may have Linux.

What kind of a computer do you have, what is the make and model? Where and when did you buy it?

Typically, this means, the hard drive is not spinning up, or a boot sector file is corrupted. Without a repair disk, or USP device, and a little PC knowledge to be able to boot into a USB device, there is nothing the typical user can do to recover from these type of issues. Have you made any hardware changes lately?

Pull, the cover off of the machine, and hold onto the HDD. Boot the machine. Does it feel like it is spinning? If it is, and you are getting that error, than the drive is corrupted, and you need to rebuild it with a repair disk.

Are you booting in the right order? Are you booting to the HDD?

I am just a volunteer, I understand, but:

Or a cable has come undone, or your BIOS battery is bad, and we cannot really verify the HDD is being booted to.
