Did you create the disk using the HP program or the Microsoft program?

Have you tried creating it again?  What are you using (what kind of disk, what size USB)

Are you able to boot from other bootable disks?

As a test of your OS and CD-DVD -- download and try either AVG or Avira or Avast Rescue ISO; I have all three, and they boot in my desktop and laptop.  By testing, I mean just booting the DVD, then exiting without making changes to anything  :)

I just wanted to eliminate a few possibilities; if any other rescue disk boots fine, then we may facing troubleshooting the hardware and/or software involved in the making of a bootable CD-DVD on your computer.

You need to answer what USASMA has asked.  This is the pertinent information missing here.

Try the steps here to create an iso file. You can either use Rufus as shown in the guide to create a bootable USB flash drive or use Imgburn to burn the iso image. Burn the iso at the slowest possible speed. For a System Repair Disk a CD is fine as it's only a few hundred MB. When installing Imgburn make sure you opt out of any optional programs. If you have 7zip you can extract the exe file and use that as it is the only file you need to burn disks but you would not get any sound effects.

Please create another repair disk and try it.

As the system will boot from other bootable disks, I'd suspect that the repair disk is faulty.
