Northgate not booting correctly from HD

\015 The computer will start, and goes to "sorry for the inconvience" window,I have tried starting in all modes normal. last good config. safe mode etceven went into bios and loaded fail safe defaults, but has done no good. I do not have the recovery CD, it was lost, I am assuming there is a HD problem and need to boot from cd to recover. How can I get a disk for this product?\015

Answers :

If you can't get it to boot from last known config, safe mode, or anything else, you won't get it to boot from CD. Sounds to me as if the HD has failed.
