The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

I have an HP Probook 4430. Two nights ago I got a blue screen and it died. The message that comes up was "BOOTMGR image is corrupt. The system cannot boot."

So I followed steps to fix it, made a recovery USB, go into the boot menu in bios and select the USB stick, and I get the message "The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum."

NONE of the advice I've found does anything to get past this. Please HELP!
