This message often appears when BIOS cannot find a Hard drive or SSD to boot from or the boot files become corrupted.

CAn you get into BIOS? Either switch back to legacy boot or check that your HDDs are all showing in BIOS and first boot device is set as USB or CD drive so you can boot from a repair or windows iso. drive.
