Hey there, whenever my computer restarts it gives me a message that says 'no boot sector on internal hard drive' then after a second a message pops up that says something a long the lines of 'press r1 to try reboot', etc ..everytime I hit f1 the computer will load up windows 7 fine though. But for some reason every single time I restart if gives me that 'no boot sector on internal hard drive' message. I've tried a few things including re-installing windows and I still couldn't figure out how to stop this, any ideas?

Is this a desktop or laptop computer?

Did this just start happening? If so, what led up to it? Also, how old is the system?
