  • Hi,

      

    According to the problem description, please perform the following steps to narrow down the issue.

     

    Upgrade BIOS to the latest version and also reset it to the default manufacturer settings

     

    Change the hard disk type in BIOS

    In BIOS there should be an option which says SATA Controller mode (or something similar) try changing the options to AHCI (Advanced Host controller Interface) or IDE mode.

     

    Unplug and re-plug the HDD

     

    Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

    1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer. 

    2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.

    3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next

    4. Click Repair your computer

    5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next 

    6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

    7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

    8. Click Finish to restore the system.

     

    Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

    1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer. 

    2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.

    3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next

    4. Click Repair your computer

    5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next

    6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

    7. (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next.

    8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.
