    Windows 8 is stuck on boot! Can't recover,restore or reset

    Laptop Information- HP 2000 Notebook PC
    Well, yesterday night, everything was going good until I tried to download League Of Legends on my laptop. I was multi-tasking on facebook, youtube, and a whole other stuff while my laptop was downloading League Of Legends, and then the whole laptop frooze and then I panicked and pressed the power button a couple times. When the laptop booted back up, it was all black and nothing happend. I was searching online and pressed the F11 button to try and restore the laptop and it did work and I also got into windows 8. It was lagging and very slow when I booted into windows 8, and so I just decided to shutdown the laptop and try to refresh and reset the laptop from boot. However the automatic recovery didn't work and couldn't repair the laptop. When I was refreshing and reseting the laptop, it wouldn't finish all the way, because it would stop at like 60% and then just stop and freeze. Now, I think I messed up a bit and now I can't boot into Windows 8 or even RESET,RESTORE,or REFRESH. Also I just dod a diagnostic check on UEFI, and my Hard Disk Short DST has failed, so I think that I need to replace my hard disk. RIGHT NOW, MY LAPTOP BOOTS THIS SCREEN DOWN HERE
    Your PC needs to be repaired

    The operating system couldn't be loaded because the system registry file is missing or contains errors.

    File: \Windows\system32\config\system
    Error code: 0xc000000f

    You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation
    media(like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer

    Press Enter to try again
    Press F8 for Startup Settings
    Press ESC for UEFI Firmware Settings
    Press F9 to use a different operating system
    All these options won't work because it will just loop back to this screen that I just showed you.
    Please Help Me Fix This Laptop!

    In this case, Windows is 100% correct in it's statement. 0xc000000f represents file corruption of a system file and in this case, the SYSTEM registry hive. If your laptop is under warranty, I suggest having them repair it if the diagnostics are coming back with failures. It really just sounds like your hard drive's health has degraded too far and needs replacement.
