Normally your primary hard drive (C should be connected to SATA 0. That does not appear to be showing. You should be able to go into the BIOS and see what drives are connected and also if the SATA 0 has been disabled which can be done with UEFI bios.

If your machine was updated to Win 10 from say Win 7 then you probably don't have an UEFI BIOS but the older MBR BIOS.

Do you have any external media plugged in when you get this error ?

If so, remove and reboot to see if it will boot up.

Change the boot order back so that it checks the internal HDD first and see what it does after the reboot.

If the machine is getting on a bit then it's possible that the HDD has failed.

I don't think booting up with an install disk, going to Repair your computer/Command Prompt to run a chkdsk /f will work as you would have to determine where it saw the volume and if it cannot find it then the cmd bcdedit |find "osedvice" could come back without a partition letter.

In that mode it doesn't always see it as in C:

If it did then the cmd would be chkdsk c: /f or whatever the partition letter is.

I tend to use the /f parameter first to determine if there are bad sectors but if the HDD is that far gone then the chkdsk wouldn't complete and fail to run, although you could see if a chkdsk /r would run.

If having removed any ext. drives and changed the boot order back to HDD first and still no go, then I would suggest that if you have access to another computer, download and create a SeaTools for DOS disk to check your HDD.

You will need to change the boot order back for it to check the CD/DVD drive first to boot from the disk.

F2 That is actually saying that your hard drive is the third device to be booted. If you do not have a removable device connected (USB) or a CD/DVD in the CD/DVD drive then it should boot. But from your first post it doesn't look like you have a viable hard drive connected. As said you will need to gain access to a working computer to download some software to make a bootable DVD and work from that.

Once you have done that, here are some more troubleshooting steps -

If you haven't created Win 10 install media, you can do from this site after reading the instructions because they differ as to whether you want to use a DVD or USB.

Assuming this is a desktop.

Do this in some sense of order before getting to the operating system.

First make sure you do not have any usb devices plugged in, just remove the keyboard mouse and try without that -probably not the problem so if it doesn't boot replace them.

Make sure you do not have any cd in the drive - again probably not the problem.

Pull the plug from the wall and open the box.

Disconnect and reconnect the hard drive data, at each end, and power cables.

Try again.

If still no joy try the hard disc plugged into a different sata port.

Then try the hard disc with a different power supply.

Report back.
