It is boot looping. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the HDD, connecting it to different HDD sata slots, start up repair, running all of the boot rec commands in CMD with start up disc, and also it says when I do a bootrec/scanos it says No Operating System found. It was working fine a week ago. Nothing changed, and this appears to be an issue. We usually just pull the HDD, back up the data, and reinstall the same OS but I wan't a fix rather than a last resort. This client has VERY proprietary software and I would like to actually fix this. 

Any suggestions?

Have you looked in the BIOS to see if the hdd is recognized there?

 

Have you tried running chkdsk /r?

 

Have you tried to rebuild the Boot Configuration Data (BCD)?

 

What commands have you tried?

thank you for your response. Yes the HDD is recognized in the bios, We have done a chkdsk /r and as for the commands I believe they were "BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD, BOOTREC /FIXBOOT, BOOTREC /FIXMBR.

Do you get the advanced boot options tapping F8 at boot? Select Disable Auto Restart on System Failure. Does it throw a BSOD with stop code?
