HD crashed on boot

I have an HP Pavilion laptop with an AMD processor running Windows Vista Prem Home edition. I had been getting some boot errors recently (error2error3), which were always correctable using Vista Recovery disk. I think (not sure) that there was a problem with bootmgr.
On a reboot immediately after loading Service Pack I onto the computer it crashed, now I get the error File \boot\bcd 0xc0000064' The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information. The recovery disk wont help, I unsuccessfully tried rebuilding the bcd file.
Is there a way to save the load? Also, is the hard drive physically damaged and in need of repair, is it trustworthy, or should I replace the drive before reloading the computer.
Thanks in advance for your help
