Unhappy Installed a new hard drive and got an error.
My HP Pavilion DV7 4267CL's hard drive went out last week. I bought a new one, the same brand name and specifications. I installed the drive, turned it on, inserted the first disc, restarted it and follow the prompts. I selected to reset factory default and continue to follow the on screen prompts. After installing all four discs, it restarted by itself and gave me an HP logo. It ask me to restart to complete installation. When it restarted again, it gave me a bootmgr is missing press ctrl+alt+delete to restart. I pressed it and it gave me the same error again. I did all the reinstallation 3x but no luck. I was getting the same error. So, I went to the bio boot utility by restarting the pc and preesing F10 while booting. I rearrange the booting sequence, dvd/cd rom drive, internal computer hard drive restarted it, inserted the first disc, turned off pc and reinstalled it and all 3 other discs. But at the end, I'm still getting the same error. Can you all help me

Here is the support site for the HP Pavilion dv7-4267cl Entertainment Notebook (XZ289UA#ABA).

Are you using an original recovery disc kit that came from HP/Compaq, or are you using one that you created after buying that laptop?

I lost the orginal disc that came with my pc, so when I ordered the hard drive, I also ordered a replacement disc too.
