As suggested by "theog", Kindly follow the Hard Drive diagnosics which would help us in isolating the issue. But if the diagnostics pass then you can try following the below mentioned steps:

1. Confirm Hard Drive is recognized in BIOS. If yes, follow next step. If NO, load BIOS defaults.
2. Boot to Safe mode and perform system restore. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only. If system restore fails or unable to access safe mode, follow next step.
3. Run Start Up repair from the URL mentioned:
