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
