I am getting this "error 3" on a friends laptop. I have been trying to fix this using my laptop to make recovery discs, however the CD/DVD Rom will not boot during startup. I allready changed the boot lineup. But it still tries to boot normally.

The laptop is a Pavilion dv9500, with VISTA. I do not have a Windows disc to reinstall with, or the exact Recovery disc to boot with. Without having to buy a Windows Vista CD, is there any other way around this?
