✔ Best Answer
Is that the exact error message or is there more to it such as "boot disk failure"?

Is there a CD in the drive? If there is, remove it & try again. If that doesn't help, enter the BIOS & check that the HDD is being properly recognized & that the boot order is configured correctly. If you have to do a factory restore, you will most likely lose all your files & programs.

From the manual on page 1-12:

The System Recovery Options feature is installed on the hard disk when shipped from the factory. The System Recovery Options menu includes tools to repair startup problems, run diagnostics or restore the system. See the Windows Help and Support content for more information about Startup Repair.

The System Recovery Options can also be run manually to repair problems. The procedure is as follows. Follow the instructions shown on the onscreen menu.

1. Turn off the computer.
2. While holding the F8 key, turn on the computer.
3. The Advanced Boot Options menu will be displayed. Use the arrow keys to select Repair Your Computer and press ENTER.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
