IMHO< you've done all you can. You also state Win7 and Vista, I certainly you're not using a Vista repair CD to fix a Win7 PC. Also, the liveCD option you seem lost on that. From all I can gather of the posts, nothing seems to work. You maybe getting too deep or causing yet other issues. These in turn may cause further damage or reduce your chances of recovering any data is that is also required.
Since, you didn't "created repair discs" during the initial Win7 first days of ownership, you've painted yourself into a corner. You also seem not able to get into the restore/recovery portion of the HD if so installed. All this leads me to suggest, STOP, unless you want to proceed to repair yourself. As I stated nothing seems to help get further into the boot cycle, something broken or corrupted. As you don't have the repair discs or access to recovery mode, you're stuck. Robert, offered a possible link to get a Win7 repair disc or knowledge to make one. Thus, if a friend has a similar OS, you can generate a repair disc, now ask that friend to do this. Remember if Win7, 32 or 64-bit version and Home, Premium, etc. must all match. If you take it to a shop, once your PC is up and running, you should access the create repair disc option. Visit the HP support website for info on all this as they do provide it for your model# or S/N#.
