Have you got any other HDD's attached when you boot?

Hi MixedVibes,

Some questions!

[1] Can you get into Safe Mode?
[2] Have you installed any new hardware, software or updates prior to this happening?
[3] Before this started happening did you have any freezing or BSODs?
[4] Have you tried running Startup Repair from the installation media [DVD/USB]?

I hope this helps!
