Try these free, bootable hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
If the system is UEFI based, you may have to turn off Secure Boot and enable Legacy/CSM mode in order to boot from a disk/drive to run the hard drive diagnositcs (which is what I suspect the problem is).
As for MemTest, run MemTest86 - NOT MemTest86+ - as the plain 86 one is UEFI compliant.

Verify the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that BIOS lists and recognizes the hard disk. Start the computer from the Windows Setup DVD and use the Bootrec /FixMbr and Bootrec /FixBoot commands within the Command Prompt to repair the Master Boot Record (MBR) and boot sector of the hard disk drive.
