'i searched google and the only thing i could find
was that this had something to do with "tattooing" the recover to the motherboard, and a workaround was to attach the HDD to a usable system and
open up C:\hp\bin\ConfigCheck\cfgchk.bat with notepad and modify the section that checks to see if the hard drive is tattoo'd to have it not bother checking at all. (although the hard drive will be running as slave so replace the C:\ with whatever drive letter Windows assigns it) The line to remove is: "python c:\hp\bin\ConfigCheck\run.py". This worked great for me and I hope it helps anyone else who comes along this thread as an alternative to dealing with tattoo'ing the motherboard or hard drive.
i did this and cannot find the .bat file, that path does not exist.
this machine is out of warranty and we do not want to take this anywhere to get anything serviced, i understand that a clean install of the OS will work, but id rather get it back to functioning another way if possible.
