Got the same problem.
"Fixed it" by pressing ESC before the message appears. It brings you to a second screen to select the boot device.
Select the hard drive having the os and go on !

Ok, it doesn't prevent the message from appearing next time you boot but at least you have a way to access your OS :)

I got the same problem a few days ago on my HP ZD7140us laptop.

Simple solution: Just downloaded the HP (same) BIOS sp28962 again and reinstalled it.

PROBLEM SOLVED !! Anything else is just wasting your time.

I had this problem too. I entered the BIOS set-up by pressing DEL at the start-up sequence (just keep DEL button until BIOS set-up screen comes up). There are 'Main', 'Advanced', 'Power', 'Boot' and 'Exit' tabls on my systems. Enter 'Boot' - 'Boot Settings Confirmation' - 'Wait for F1 if Error' - change to 'Disable'. Exit and save changes. This solved my problem.

I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution

Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?

Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"

  • Press the "F1" or "F10" key when the logo appears on the screen to enter the BIOS setup.

  • Navigate to the BIOS menu "Advanced" using the right/left arrow keys on your keyboard.

  • Get to the option "Boot Order" with up/down arrow keys, and press "Enter."

  • Select the first boot device under the "Boot Order menu option and press "Enter."
  • Select "DVD" from the list of available boot devices and press "Enter."

    Shut your computer down and remove the power cord.

    Replace the power cord and press the "Power" button to restart it.

    Watch the screen carefully for a message about computer setup.

    Most computers use one of the function keys, which are aligned across the top of the keyboard, to access the computer's setup utility, but each manufacturer uses a different key.

    For instance, HP computers generally use the F1 or F10 keys, while many Dell computers use the F12 key.

    Press the appropriate function key to enter the computer's setup program, then scroll through the list of options until you see "Boot Order."

    The exact location of the boot order option varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but it is often located under the Advanced menu.

    Highlight the "USB Devices" option and press the up arrow key until that device is first on the boot order list.

    This will force the computer to look at the external DVD drive first when it boots up.

    Use the "Esc" key to exit the setup menu. Choose the "Save settings and exit" option and allow the computer to reboot.

    It will now boot from the external DVD drive.

    Hope this helps

    No responce from keyboard

    The keyboard is not dead. I have contacted HP about this issue (DO NOT CALL THEM AND HAVE THEM FIX IT! THEY GAVE ME AN ESTIMATE OF $300!) they SAY that it is a hardware issue...

    However have found more than one website saying that it is most likely the CMOS battery that has gone dead.

    Another "Won't Boot"

    First Press all the keys on the keyboard (computer on or off)a sweeping motion accross all keys will do, A stuck key can prevent windows from booting (seen as a keyboard error). it is also possible that your keyboard connector has come loose, check the keyboard connector (you will need to remove the facia above the keyboard and may have to undo a couple of screws to do this). could try to plug in an external keyboard, see if this allows you to bypass issue
