Windows 7: 0xc000000f Recovery Error - System Recovery Discs not being processed

0xc000000f Recovery Error - System Recovery Discs not being processed

Hello,

My computer has many corrupt files. I have done both sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r multiple times, but the corrupt files still remain. Unfortunately, my HP's recovery manager is also corrupt so I decided to do a full factory restore. Because I couldn't do a full factory restore from the computer, I ordered the discs from HP.
When ever I try to do a recovery from the boot menu (F8 or F11), I get the following error:

"Boot Manager:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible."

I insert the disc, but nothing happens. The computer returns to the same steps. I even tried going through control panel and Full System Restore. Again, I get the same steps. When I press enter, it allows me to boot Windows 7 or do a memory diagnostic test.

I appreciate any help.

Hello and welcome sunnyxm well if yo are trying to just reinstall try this it will save all the bloatware from HP being loaded anyway.

REINSTALL

Forinstalling I prefer a disk to be honest but if you want to try again this isthe one to follow
CleanReinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 make sureit is the right version ie Home Premium or Ultimate whatever you have a codefor and then the language and do not use the ones with a large "N" or"old" beside them.
You can use a disk or USB stick with this.

The thing is I ordered recovery discs from HP. There has to be a reason for why its not going through the recovery process. I suspect its due to corrupt files, but wanted to see if someone with more insight had a better idea of what the problem might be.

Ok sunny what do you want? the recovery stuff that is obviously corrupted or a machine that is running Windows 7 and bloatware free.

I gave you a link to follow and do the clean install of 7 that be without the clutter that HP will put on for you - your choice though.

Personally speaking I know what I would do and did so on both my Toshiba laptops and wouldn't have it any other way as I found the bloatware extremely annoying.

Perhaps someone might be able to help just I can't and don't really see the point of going to great lengths to sort it out when the solution is so simple.
