    Sounds like the hard drive may be toast. Have you double checked the connections between the drive and board just in case they have creeped loose. You could also try a different cable just in case ... .

    Did you go into advanced BIOS page, then into Hard Drive Boot Priority and check that your disk is at the top of this list?

    I know you mentioned similar, but just checking because some users confuse this with the 1, 2, 3 boot order settings, which is not the same.

    Yes, please do check the power and data cable connections to the drive and board to be sure they are secure. You may also want to test your drive with the manufacturer diagnostic tools, this will tell you if it is failing.

    If you need a link to this tool please tell us what model/brand drive you have and we can link it for you

    try doing chkdsk /r
    this will check and repair possible bad sector in your system.

    Also see if you can use you HDD to boot in a friend/family members PC.
