Recently my iTunes went haywire and froze my computer, and when I rebooted it, I got the error:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "next".
3. Click "repair your computer".
I have a Samsung SF510 laptop running Windows 7 x64.
Anyways, I burned an ISO to a disk (downloaded from this forum) and put it in, and hit F4 which brought me to Samsung Recovery Solution 5 or something like that, and it has said "please wait" for the past 6 hours
I've tried booting Sea Tools by putting the CD drive as my #1 on my BIOS priority boot list, but no luck.
When I hit F12, then I get the error:
Media test failure, check cable
Im pretty darn sure its a hard drive problem (Despite the hard drive still being recognized in my BIOS).
Before I shell out $400 for future shop to recover data, swap the hard drive and install everything for me...Do you guys have any thoughts?
Thanks so much. I gave as many details as I could.
