No operating system or damaged Mother Board

i removed the built-in monitor of the laptop because its broken. i connected it to an external monitor with VGA cable and im able to use it. after a few months it went BSOD i didnt see the error because it shutted down immediately. i cant see the BIOS eventhough it is connected to an external monitor. what i did is i extracted its HDD then plugged it in into another laptop and it prompted, “there are no boot device available”. if it has no OS, can i use the laptop to install a new OS? and transfer it back to my HP laptop?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes you can do that make sure after installing OS while connecting to the older laptop you press f8 button several times until you receive boot menu or the system would be started in a healthy mode. IF boot into boot mode then check all the driver and possible errors for that at most of the times it reboot to normal mode without any interruption.

If you are getting BIOS in the external display but you are not able to get it in the laptop facing problem with there must be some hardware error.
