Well, HDD is recognized as it says Hitachi in the BIOS. It is also set as second boot option (CD is first) but still the same issue.

So what now, do I restart in Safe mode and disable the Verifier or try to repair?

EDIT: nothing works now, the screen stays like that. I tried recovery, safe mode, diagnostics and even tried to boot from CD using a Windows 7 dvd, nothing works.

Yep, sounds like the hard drive is done. If you have another hard drive available to try and boot from, I would recommend that to be sure.

Just a few things, if the hard drive is corrupt, would it still be recognized in the BIOS?

Also why is it not booting from the CD? Is that also related to the hard drive?

The hard drive itself may not be corrupt, it may just be dying / on its way out / unrepairable bad sectors, etc. There are many variables.

Also, what do you mean it won't boot from the CD? Can you explain detail what happens and where this error pops up every time?

You know how you put the OS CD in your optical drive, restart and keep pressing a button until it goes to the Windows 7 installation?

I tried that as well. I set CD as 1st boot priority, inserted the CD, restarted. Kept pressing enter to get into Win 7 installation but it didn't do anything. Just went to the screen I showed earlier.

I thought that was really strange.

After further research because this was incredibly interesting and I have never dealt with it, PXE booting indicates that the hard drive is dead and cannot be booted from.

Time to replace the drive.

Crap that's not good news.

Well, thanks for all the help! Much appreciated!

My pleasure, keep me updated after the drive has been replaced.
