I have a all in one HP OMNI 200 pc. The computer came with windows 7 but was upgraded to windows 10 about 6 months ago. Was trying to do a recovery/reset and it froze up with the following message:
Your PC /device needs to be repaired. The operating system couldn't be loaded because the kernal is missing or contains errors.
error code 0xc0000221

Welcome to the HP Forums!
I have read your post and understand that you need assistance in rebooting the PC back to factory settings. I will definitely help you.
Since you have got the error while performing the recovery, it indicates that the recovery partition on your PC is corrupted to which you are unable to complete the same.
I recommend you to get in touch with phone support using the link below to order a recovery media which will help you fix the issue you have on your PC now.
Hope that answers your question. Let me know for more.
Glad to help you. I work for HP
