Had to replace the hard drive in grandson's HP laptop. Now when I turn it on after performing system diagnostics, I only get the following message: Boot device not found. Please install an operating syste on your hard disk. Hard disk (3FO). If I reinstall windows 10 should that solve the problem?

Yes, that is exactly what that message is telling you.
The new drive you put in has no OS on it.
