Please help me fix "Error Code 100a, If this occurs again please contact HP support"

I have a vista desktop (HP Pavillion a6752f PC) and it doesnt seem to work properly, One day my computer would not start up so I went to system recovery. But accidently i selected format instead so I shutdown my computer during the format process, Then my computer stopped working and everytime i turned it on it would redirect me to the recovery manager, Yes everytime even if i try to go in safe more and last known good configuration. And then it said that you can only format because its the best solution, But then when ever i try to format it Error 100a comes out. I REALLY NEED HELP

You need a Recovery set.Did you burn a Recovery DVD set? If so try booting from the first one to start a recovery to factory specs.

If you didn't burn your Recovery Media they can be ordered for around $20 or less from your support page:
