My Pavilion was running Vista Home Premium. It "died" and will not boot. I do not have a recovery disc nor the OEM disc becaue the desktop did not come with one. What now?

You can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs using the link below - I believe these cost around $16.
If you have any problem with this link and live in the US, order them directly from HP Here.
If you are in another part of the world, start Here.

I have a desk top that I cannot boot from the hard drive. I think the only option is to boot from Windows 7 as I keep coming back to 'Reboot and select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'
Can you assist
