there you go, problem solved. it looks like the HD failed. I'm not sure what your options are now as far as retrieving data off the disk, but go ahead and do a clean install of windows on one of your good HDD's. think about getting a SSD if you can, i just installed one this past Saturday and it's well worth the money

Test the HD with maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan. Use Data Lifeguard DOS ISO burned to CD for WD HD's.

Make sure the correct HD is set to boot first in BIOS setup.

What are the results of attempting Startup Repair and other tests I gave you from the DVD Repair console or Repair CD? System Recovery Options
