Hey guys, I've been on these forums a lot, successfully finding solutions to a lot of minor issues, but this one I havent been able to find a result for anywhere, so any help would be great!!

I have an HP Envy 15, with Windows 7 installed. A few months back I had a hard drive problem, and had it taken in to get a new hard drive put in. I'm guessing at this point, I lost the pre installed recovery partition for windows 7 (it did not come with a recovery disk).

Now the main problem: I tried to install some new touchpad drivers, and when it restarted it would hang on the Loading Windows screen. Upon trying to start in Safe Mode, it hangs on either CLFS.sys or Disk.sys. So I cant start in safe mode, or normal mode - after leaving them hanging for long enough it brings up these 2 options: Launch Startup Repair (recommended) or Start Windows Normally.

Launching startup repair gives me this: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. Status: 0xc000000e

So, I can't boot in safe mode, can't launch start up repair, the laptop has no optical drive, so I cant boot a repair disk. Ive tried burning a repair/recovery disk iso to a cd and using it with a USB optical drive, editing the boot order in the BIOS to boot the usb cd drive first. But nothing comes up and it boots how it normally would.

Any help on this would be hugely appreciated, before having to take it in to get repaired. Cheers!
