How repair the boot in a HP PRO 6300 with Windows 7

Hello I have a HP pro 6300 with Windows 7 One day the pc doesn't start and no warning in the screen.

I can pass all the hardward test with bios utility.

If I start with my Windows 7 pro I get the warning "the disk doesn't math with the installed Windows" when I try to launch the recovery console.

But When the original disk I only can Restore the  Pc (Or I don't know how to launch recovery console)

Any idea

have you tried booting in to safe mode by pressing F8. does it boot up at all.

if you haven't got data then i would use the recovery to install the OS and update accordingly

Recovery console does preserve your data.

when the PC boots it should give you an option to press may be F12 or F9 to boot from RC. you will have to restart a couple of times and keep your eyes peeled on that boot screen
i would connect the disk to another pc - and check if it boots up
you can also run a diag on it then; best use the ubcd for that :
Hardware diagnostic CD    UBCD
 i suggest the UBCD  to run some diags first - to be sure about the basics
go to the download page, scroll down to the mirror section, and  click on a mirror to start the download
Download the UBCD and make the cd   <<==on a WORKING PC, and boot the problem PC from it
Here 2 links, one to the general site, and a direct link to the download

since the downloaded file is an ISO file, you need to use an ISO burning tool
if you don't have that software, install cdburnerXP : http://cdburnerxp.se/

If you want also the Ram tested - run memtest86+ at least 1 full pass,  - you should have NO errors!
For disk Diagnostics run the disk diag for your disk brand (eg seagate diag for seagate drive)  from the HDD section -  long or advanced diag !  (runs at least for30 minutes)
