Question about HP Computers & Internet
All is not lost, when you try to boot up, you may see a "Press F? to enter setup" it goes by quick so you have to watch. Once in DOS environment you can change your boot options, set passwords, if your dual booting you can set the default os , anyway, whatever you change be sure to save and exit. To get yours up, choose safe mode/recovery mode. If os comes up go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore> choose a date before issue arose>click next/continue, wait for system to recover> reboot and enter DOS environment again and now set boot options to normal save and exit. I hope this helps.

The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.
Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.
After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.
Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.
One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.
The computer has to be booted from the disk.
