Windows 7: How to get a reinstallation of Win 7 to boot a computer?

How to get a reinstallation of Win 7 to boot a computer?

My HP G72-B60US is unable to boot. The Windows Boot Manager window displays “Windows failed to start. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your 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 administer or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 8xc000000f
info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data."

I do not have a reinstallation disc because the operating system was preinstalled. Can I download free Windows 7 Home Reinstallation file to boot my computer? Thank you for your answer.
