My /boot is corrupted and unreadable

Hello, I have a HP Pavilion dv3 and last week, when I tried to boot it, an error made windows failing start. The status is 0xc000000f. Since then, I have tried everything: /bootrec commands, boot fix...
Is there a last hope to fix it before complete recovery?
Thanks

did you try booting to Repair options with the Windows 7 install disk? Have you created a system recovery disk?

Hello, thanks for help but it didn't work, it did a "Failure when attempting to copy boot files" I tried a "bcdboot" command repare but I'm not sure I did what I needed (I followed an Internet tutorial) and now, when I try to boot, I get a "A disk read error occured
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" in a loop

Use your System Recovery/Repair Disc to boot into Command Prompt, and then use Option #2 of this tutorial:

Disk Check

Just want to check to see if you have any problems with the actual hard-drive itself.

System Recovery Options

The above tutorial will show you how to boot into your System Recovery Options from the System Repair Disc.

I tried that and now, I still have the disk read error at startup but the windows that were popping up when boot on install disk and telling me 4 times that my /boot and /temp were corrupted and it is able to find my system on the stage just after language selection

What message did the Disk Check program give you? Are the /boot and /temp error messages still occurring?

Did you use the following Command in Command Prompt?

chkdsk C: /F /R

I just try the command you gave me and it told me that "windows has checked the file system and found no problem"
Also, the error messages aren't occurring anymore.

So what is the computer doing now, where it would have the error messages before?
