    Hi,

    You will need the Windows 7 Media to Repair the Windows Installation or/ Re-Install Windows.

    Contact HP Customer Services or HP Technical Support and provide them with your serial number, They will then be able to send you the HP Recovery Media to do fix the problem your having. A Repair on Windows Installation should be fine.

    Hope that helps,

    James.

    If the auto recovery process doesn't work try booting from the Windows media and going to repair the computer (after selecting languages etc)

    Goto the command prompt and type:

    bootrec /FixBoot
    bootrec /FixMbr

    This will restore a master boot record, to the first hard drive, which it sounds like yours has lost.

    Usually any Windows 7 disc will be ok for the repair process. Not sure if a Vista disc would do. You could also try using the Super Grub disk to try booting to various partitions.

    How did this problem occur? You may be seeing a broken hard drive if you havent deleted any partitions or removed OS's.

    You could try what Jamo suggested using one of the Windows 7 recovery discs from here.

    If you dont have disk then go to command prompt and type there as Jamo says:
    bootrec /FixBoot
    bootrec /FixMbr
