I now have a disc I burned from the web with my other pc. Now I can partially boot to the repair tool but, my os is not on the list. It says that I need to load the drivers for my hard drive. How do I go about doing just that? Keeping in mind that all my windows data is on the hard drive along with a partition for recovery. HP does not include any discs when you purchase a one of their pcs.
