BOOTMGR missing message

HP Recommended
Compaq Presario CQ5000
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

On boot up I get a message "Hard disk failure is imminent. Please back up your hard drive and have it replaced!". When I press F2 to continue I get the BOOTMGR missing error. I have a new hard drive but I need a bootable Windows 7 install disk, When I try to download the ISO from Microsoft and enter the product ID on the case label it says it is not a valid ID and to contact the computer manufacturer. 

How do I get a valid product ID so I can install the new drive?

Hi

A Licence/KEY for W7 is something I cannot provide, somewhere to possibly obtain a W7 iso I can.

I suggest you print out everything you can using Belarc Advisor.

I have downloaded a Windows 7 ISO file but I can't get is burnt to a DVD to create bootable media. I keep getting a "not enough disk space" error. This is a brand new DVD with nothing on it.
