you will need to replace the hard drive and reinstall Windows. It may be possible to buy a hard disk from Dell that has Windows ready to install.

Good Luck

Hi Magesh,

You may be facing a connectivity issue or a hard drive problem. Please open the BIOS menu and check if the hard drive is recognized. If it is missing, open the PC case and change the HDD cables. If the drive keeps missing, test it on another PC. If it is still not recognized, you may need to replace the drive.
If your PC is under warranty, call the seller before starting the troubleshooting.

Hope this helps
