I understand that you are getting a message when the computer boots up saying 'SolutionCenter' the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. And it looks for a CD. These types of errors happen because installation of a software application has not completed or a software application is attempting to repair itself because a file is missing or a registry entry was removed.
To resolved the issue, we need to clean-up the SolutionCenter.msi entry using the Windows CleanUp utility. This will prevent the message which looks for the CD everytime when is started.
To download the Windows CleanUp utility, please use the below link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
Open the webpage, and then scroll the webpage, click on "Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility package now". Or you may click on the FTP Link as under:
A Window with 'Run' and 'Save' button will pop.
1.Click on Save button
2.Select Desktop in the "Save In' drop down list in the Save As screen and click on the 'Save' button and go ahead to download the driver to your computer's Desktop.
3.After the file is saved to the desktop, go to the computer's desktop and double click on the downloaded file named msicuu2.exe and select RUN.
4.Follow the instructions on the installer screens to complete the installation.
After the installation is completed, follow the below steps to open Windows CleanUp utility:
2.click 'All Programs' (or 'Programs')
3.Click Windows Installer Clean Up Utility. A dialog box will be displayed that contains a message, a list of installed products, and four buttons.
4.Select 'SolutionCenter' in the list and click on 'Remove' button to uninstall the entry.
5. Restart the computer to enable the steps.
I am sure that the issue will be resolved.

MS VISTA 64 group has elevated HP Photo all-lin-one problems I sent them last week to be looked into and with HP as they acknowledge its a new OS system

Ran the Windows Installer Cleanup utility and removed SolutionCenter as MukeshS described. Error gone.
Had to use Windows Installer Cleanup utility in the past to get rid of Photo Gallery errors.

I am having this problem as well. I received no discs when I purchased my computer. I tried to search both hard drives for the solutioncenter.msi file, but could not locate it. Can HP send me installation package for HP Solution Center or tell where on the Internet I can dowload this file. I'm new to Vista Home Ed (the "tree directories" look VERY different and I can't seem to browse the hard drive in Windows Explore to find the C: or D:\setup\solutioncenter folder.
