RAID shouldn't be a problem if your original configuation was only one hard drive and you didn't try to build a RAID array. The default bios setting is RAID.

I suspect that the HP recovery disks are seeing a mismatch between the "tattooing" information on the motherboard and with the information contained in the HP recovery disks. You need to contact HP Support or an authorized HP repair facility to remedy this situation.
