Initially when attempting to boot up it was giving the black screen with 0xc00000e9. I'm not even sure what I did to get rid of that, but all attempts to boot the machine failed either giving that black screen or a flashing cursor. Anyway, that is now 'resolved' I don't know but it isn't happening anymore.
Now it goes through the "windows loading files" then the windows logo, which then turns to a black screen revealing the mouse cursor then the blue circle, which then goes away and just sits there black screen mouse cursor. There is control of the mouse cursor.
There apparently is no recovery partition on the disk as when I hold the 0 key down on boot up it just beeps at me and continues with what it was doing. Attempts at running in safe mode (in all 3 variations), and all the other (including the low res startup) result in the black screen with the mouse cursor...
I did create a 'recovery disk' on my HP Win 7 64-bit and it booted up to a command prompt screen see attached picture...
