Please explain in more detail what you are attempting to do when you see the error code.
Are you trying to perform an HP recovery for the notebook from the onboard HP Recovery Manager?
Did you create USB or DVD recovery media?

STOP: 0x0000007B or ERROR error code FFFFFF15
This issue occurs when Windows has lost access to the boot partition or system partition, typically the C drive on most installations. This issue can also occur when replacing the motherboard, and re-using the hard drive with the OS already installed.
Some older versions of Windows will show the description as "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE".
This is a fatal Windows error, typically called a Stop message, Bug Check, or more commonly the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). The system is in a forced reboot state. Any unsaved work is likely lost.
