Hi chaos26...

The following is from the manual for your HP model computer. Make sure that you have selected the cd-rom as first boot device in BIOS Setup (F10 at boot screen)

To reinstall the operating system using the Operating System disc included with the computer:

1. Plug the computer into external power through the AC adapter, and turn on the computer.
2. Immediately insert the Operating System disc into the computer.
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds to turn off the computer.
4. Press the power button again to turn on the computer.
5. When prompted, press any key to start from the disc.
After a few minutes, you may need to select your language to enable the Setup Wizard to open.
6. Press Enter to continue.
A licensing agreement page is displayed.
7. Press F8 to accept the agreement and continue.
The "Setup" page is displayed.
8. Press Esc to continue installing a new copy of the operating system instead of repairing it.
9. Press Enter to set up the operating system.
10. Press C to continue setup using this partition.
11. Select Format the partition using the NTFS file system (Quick), and then press Enter.
CAUTION Formatting this drive deletes all current files.
12. Press F to format the drive.
The reinstallation process begins. This process may take up to 2 hours to complete. The computer restarts in Windows when the process is complete.

This is a slightly different procedure than the tutorial you followed earlier.
