I had this with a 3 week old HP (and a BIOHD-8 as well)
A temp fix at least, is to use knoppix, go to the partition program, and delete the main partition, and then add a new one formatted to NTFS. You can then use the recovery discs.
You should also be able to access the drive via knoppix to recover data before you delete the partition, either to flash storage or across a network. I managed to recover about 55gb of data that way (I do a lot of video work)

Rebooting forever is either memory fault or the HDD have corrupt system files. From the BIOHD-8, it sounds like HDD issue. Try download "HDD Regenerator 1.51" CD ISO, burn to DC and scan to whole Harddrive. This nice software is designed to recover corrupt/bad sectors. I had a friends PC falls into this case. 1 bad sector was found and recovered within 2GB from start where most Windows system files are stored. Then reboot and windows do a chkdsk automatically, and resolved!

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.
