I try to respond in 24-48 hours normally and I am more active on weekdays than weekends. However, sometimes due to my health, family or life it may take me a little longer. If you have not heard from me within 72 hours then please PM me a reminder.

It does not get as far as the spinning circle. The BIOS screen comes up like normal, but after that it's just black.

You will need to access the Recovery Environment to perform the following.
One method to enter the RE is to boot the computer till it begins to load then press and hold the Power button. This will cause the computer to perform a hard shutdown. If you repeat this two or three times the computer should boot into the Recovery Environment. You should see an image similar to the one below.
Once in the RE you need to select Advanced options.
You now need to select Command Prompt.
When the Command Prompt opens copy and then paste the command below in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.
You should see the following.
Scanning all disks for Windows installations.
This may take a while, please do not stop the scan.
If this was successful you will receive the following message.

The operation completed successfully.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
