Get your Windows 7 OS installer then choose restore.

First, just a piece of advice, it might useful to partition your hard drive. You can separate your OS and your data (what you don't want to lose) in 2 different partitions. And in doing so this allows you to format and reinstall an operating system on your first partition (used for OS only) while keeping all your valuable data intact.

Of course, best is to have two hard drives x)

Now have you tried updating your BIOS? Have you checked the cables on your hard drive to make sure they are not loose or faulty?

I would suggest testing another hard drive cable first. Then checking to see if a BIOS update is available. And on the slight chance - test another hard drive. Sounds to me like maybe the hard drive is acting up. =P

also if possibly, try to back up as much of your data as you can (external drive, etc.). It's always best to be safe =).

As stupid as this sounds i get this error on occasion when swapping from win 7 to XP Hdds. The HP this is in is an older a6130n, it also used to happen with vista+xp on an old biostar lga 775 build.

The trick i came across that would usually remedy this within 1-4 resets is as follows.

1) Once system is powered down, unplug PSU/flip it to "off" if you have that feature.
2) With the power disengaged hit your power button. Fans lights etc. should kick on for a couple milliseconds.
3) After doing this turn the PSU back on/Plug it back in.
4) Hit power button and intercept with w/e method opens Bios. Check to make sure that all HDD/SSD drives are listed and in the order you need them in to properly boot the OS.
5) Save, Restart, ect.

6) If that process alone does not restore the issue and you have multiple Drives hooked up, the next step I have followed to remedy this would be to re-seat each primary component. HDD/SSD, RAM and optical drives 'not exactly necessary'.
7) Once again after doing step 6 it should work, If not repeat 1-4. And lastly if all attempts have failed, it is now time to accept that you will need to repair the OS.

Hope this helps and good luck.
On a side note. With the ridiculous frequency i have encountered this issue, the above listed remedy has never failed to repair the issue. It has caused a chkdisk about 7 out of 35 or so times over the course of 3 years. But only once has required a reinstall and thus was due to a failed HDD i was attempting to salvage.
