Windows 7: Uncountable Boot Volume, no Safe Mode, no recovery console!

Uncountable Boot Volume, no Safe Mode, no recovery console!

Hi. I have been stuck on this for weeks. Please help me.

I have a 2 year old vaio that has i5 and 8 gb of ram. I have windows 7 professional x64. My computer froze while on the Internet, and when I manually shut it down and restarted it, it gave me two options. Start repair console, and start normally. When I started it normally, it froze on the windows logo. I restarted it, and tried recovery console, but it loads, then gives me an arrow with a background of blue and a bird on the right, which is windows 7's background when logging in. But it only shows this.

I have tried safe mode, but that freezes on classpnp.sys and I have tried to boot from windows 7 recovery disk. I have also tried windows vista recovery disk. When the windows 7 disk booted, it loads and then asks for my country, but then again shows just a cursor.


Blue screen of death error is unmountable boot volume.

HELP??!!??!!

Start with the bootable diagnostics here (particularly the hard drive test): Hardware Diags

Try the SeaGate Seatools test (in addition to the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test)
If they don't recognize it, then it's most likely a bad/dead/dying hard drive.

You'll have to test with another, known good hard drive - but the end result is that you'll have to install a hard drive and install Windows from your Recovery Disks.

Good luck!
