system image restore failed

I have a HP pavilion p6823 and one day it wouldnt go past the blue hp screen that has the setup and BIOS options. Well I used a system repair disk and it told me i needed system image disks so I put the last disk in like it said, and now it is giving me this message

Error details: Windows did not find any fixed disk that can be used to recreate volumes present in backup. Ensure disks are online, and disk drivers are installed to access the disk(s). 'diskpart.exe' tool with list disks command can be used to see the list of available fixed disks on the system.

Even if you dont know but you could at least tell me what it means so I can google it, I just need some help!

Well, it looks like you went for the image restore option. Did you ever create a system image? If not, you should try to go for a restore from a restore point or try to reinstall the system - after you saved your files with a live Linux CD.

Are those system image disks or recovery disks.

All the recovery disk would let me do is open a command prompt and tell me to insert the last system image disk in the set.
