    It appears that you do not have the boot priority sequence in your BIOS to
    boot from the HDD that has your OS on it first.

    Do you have more than one hard drive connected to the motherboard? If
    so, run Disk Management and check the status of the partitions. The
    hard drive containing the System partition is the one that the Bios
    should boot.

  5. How many hard drives do you have installed? Does/did another hard drive ever
    have an operating system on it?

    If so, I have a good handle on what is happening.

    Get back with the answers.
