winload.exe error in vista

I have an HP Pavillion dV6000 laptop ( Vista) that is getting the following error:

windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change
might be the cause. to fix the problem:
insert your win installation disc and restart your computer.
choose your lenguage settings, and then click next
click repair your computer

if you dont have this disc contact your system administrator
or computer manufacturer for assistance.

file \windows\system32\winload.exe
status 0xc000000e

info: the selected entry could not be loaded because the app
is missing or corrupt.

enter to continue--------------------

enter reboots same error.  No recovery Cd came with this laptop.  I hit F11 when i start it it looks like it is trying to do something then reboots.  I booted with a Bart disk and can browse to the C: drive and the D: drive (recovery) winload.exe is there.  is there any way i can recover this using bart and going directly into either C: or D: ?  or any way for that matter?

thanks

If it has a recovery partition, tapping <F8> as it boots will give you an option screen. Repair my computer should be one of the options.

If there is no repair option available, download the Vista recovery disk from here -

http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/

It will provide access to the repair option the same as a vista install disk would.

And since you don't have recovery DVD's for that PC, that is the first thing to take care of once it is running again (burrcm has pointed out how to do that already). HP (like most other manufacturer's that sell PC's without recovery media) includes a utility which will allow you to create your recovery DVD set. That's always one of the first things one should do after buying a new PC. Start that utility and create your own recovery DVD set. Make sure you have some writable DVD media around. The utility supplied by HP as far as I know only allows you to run that utility once, so you can only make one such set. So once you have the disks, make sure you store them in a safe place where they don't get damaged, and possibly use a DVD burning utility like CDBurnerXP to make duplicates of those disks. You need them if the HD crashes and you need to replace it, as a new HD won't have the recovery partition included. So go through the HP utilities and look for the create re media utility...
