Remove disk or other media press any key to restart. What do I do? Diagnostics test came out good and I have no recovery disc. I have a hp p6-2007c with windows 7 64 bit

Your system is telling you to remove something; either a CD/DVD from the drive or maybe even a USB device. It's trying to boot from said media and it's not finding a bootable image. Remove it and press any key to restart the system.

Once resolved, you may want to go into BIOS and change your boot device order to have the Hard Drive as the first boot device.

If you're getting that error message when telling the computer to boot from your hard drive, then the issue is with your installation. If you do not have a recovery disc, then I'd suggest contacting HP for your options on obtaining one for your system.
