What happens when you try to boot into the Advanced Boot Options?

 

To do this start pressing F8 immediately after pressing the power button.

Try F11 to open the System Recovery.  When it opens click on Command Prompt, then type in chkdsk c:/r then press Enter.

 

You will probably get a message explaining that the scan can't be run while the hdd is locked, or words to this effect, it should ask if you wish to run the scan on the next boot, you will need to press the Y key and then reboot your computer.

f11 does nothing,but if i put the dvd in i can boot up and go to start then serch and type in cmd and get commond promp that way is that ok??

 

i tryed running a diagnostics test on primary hard drive it wont allow me ,so im running one on secondary hard disk and it passed.

 

my operating system is installed on c drive 2 so you think just changing the boot order would fix this?but it does not.

It's worth a try, but if no operating system is being recognized it may not run the chkdsk after rebooting.

 

If the Windows 7 DVD is the installation disc you can do a repair installation which may resolve this issue.  If you wish to try this you can find a good step by step tutorial at Repair Install - Windows 7 Forums.

i ran this

 

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

The above command will scan all your disks for other operating systems compatible with Windows 7 and allow you to add them to your system's boot list.

 

 

and i got   total identified windows installations 0

Look in the BIOS and see what the boot order is and if C: drive is recognized.
