Boot into BIOS setup to see if HD is detected. If not try reinstalling the HD to make sure it's still seated correctly. HP ProBook 6455b Notebook PC - Removing and Replacing the Hard Disk Drive - c02451935 - HP Business Support Center. If so run the maker's HD Diagnostic extended boot scan to determine for sure its condition.

Next boot into the Windows 7 installer provided in step 5 in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times after confirming the Windows 7 partition or it's 100mb System Reserved boot partition (preferred) is marked Active: Mark Partition Active .

Post back results.

What sometimes happens when dropped is that the HD gets slightly dislodged so it isn't fully making contact. This is why I said that next I'd pull it out to look it over good and then reseat it paying attention to how it makes contact.

But this is a rare situation so it looks like you will at least need a new HD. Google the PC model + HD replacement, then google the HD model replacement to study your options closely including in Shopping view.

What makes you think HD is detected? Did it show a Windows 7 installation to repair? That neverending Startup Repair is most often an attempt at Disk Check on a bad HD.
