Well...if the hard drive is detected in the BIOS and Windows doesn't boot...first thing I would do is run a diagnostic on the hard drive reflecting Windows, after disconnecting all other hard drives.  I would satisfy myself that the hard drive functional before I started coming up with any other plans.

 

You can follow the procedure provided to check the functional status of the hard drive reflecting Windows.  Run the long diagnostic and do NOT attempt any repairs, if such are made available.

I don't know, never tried.  You don't have an operable optical disk drive?

Intel 945,I found an error in hardisk sentinel is there are 20 badsectors on the disk surface.thcontcontents of these sectors were moved to this spare area.the hardisk is operating in pio mode which reduces performance.its recommended to check and replace data cable or modify the configuration. What should I do now

To get solve this issue, just boot to your windows disc. Then you will see the option to enter the command prompt. At that time, just try a simple fix to MBR within command prompt.
