I was having a issue with my old HD it froze in every mode. Recovery. Safe. Start up repair. Etc. I decided to buy a new use. Just put it in and then inserted a burnt copy which was proven to work on another unit. It won't boot. Bios works and I reordered the boot order and then back to default. I get the same error.

Cup test - passed

Hard drive connection test - passed

Boot test - failed Error code -BIOHD4

Warning: boot sector corrupted/not found

Memory test - passed

There is no OS on this drive and the disk I have is burnt. Is it possible that my DVD/CD drive is dead? I had problems with it before and had it disconnected. I really can't afford a new system or a new copy of windows 7 or 10. I don't have a flash drive handy and I'm doing this from my phone. I don't have a 2nd pc. This sucks ass. I thought this would work. Please help of you can. Thanks in advance.
