My link

My errors and updates are all stated there, however I will also continue anything here. Help is greatly appreciated and thank you.

I restarted the process. This time, during the startup of the computer I repeatedly tapped Esc. then selected my P2 HL-DT-STDVDRAM GT34N and pressed enter. This was followed up by the usual "Windows is loading files..." progress bar. Afterwards, it sat at the "Starting Windows" screen for eight minutes. It loads a basic ASUS wallpaper and cursor. I am then confronted with the prompt: AI RECOVERY-Are you ready to restore this image yes/no?
I select yes.
AI RECOVERY:Restoring it will overwrite your hard drive. Do you want to continue? Ok/cancel
I select ok.
The AI Recovery Restore begins-This DVD will help you recover hidden partition. Check the AC adapter connection and do not interrupt the restoration process. Message: <blank>.
As of now, it has been sitting with zero progress.

Hi

Forgive me if I missed it (I read the linked thread).
What happens when you try to boot from the hard drive instead of the DVD?

I seem to have misplaced the manual. But thanks, I will attempt to do so. I went to BIOS (F2), to boot, and it does not appear I can boot from a recovery partition. I went to Advanced Boot Options (f8) in search for another option. Since there was "no repair your computer" option (probably should have put recovery disc info on laptop for future use), I attempted the last known good configuration choice. Did not work.

When I make an attempt to boot from the hard drive (switching priority from P0 to P2 in BIOS boot), save that configuration, and try again I am confronted by an error: Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected
