I have the exact same issue with an HP Slimline s3330f. Looks like HP is going to send out a recovery disc and a new hard drive. They will first ask you to preform the following tests:
pressing F10 (system BIOS) select the primary hard drive and run both the short and extended hard drive tests.
pressing F9 on startup (diagnostic utility) Hard Drive passed but there is a boot record error code BIOHD-5

Could be one of two things: either the BIOS has lost the settings for the hard drive, which is uncommon unless the PC is more than 5 years old or been electrically shocked, or the hard drive is going bad. hard drives usually only last about 3-5 years on average. Western Digital even less.

1. Restart the computer.
2. Keep tapping the F10 key when the HP logo appears. BIOS Setup Utility.
3. Select the Diagnostic tab.
4. Select the "hard drive self test" option and press enter to perform the test. Note: This test takes atleast 40 minutes. This will take you to
Pass - The hard drive is not damaged.
Fail - The hard drive is damaged and may need to be replaced.
