Jimmy,

Exactly what do you mean by "screwed up the set-up?

Why don't you try fixing what you screwed up first?

I assume you created your Recovery Disks but there is not a 100% guarantee that the Recovery process will go as planned.  Something as simple as one of your disks can't be read or the USB skips a beat then you are up-the-creek.  Occasionally, even recovery disks sent from HP don't work properly.  I always consider Recovery to Factory Status a last resort.
