    You have likely made an error in the installation of your Windows or whatever software...
    Or your hard drive has gone bad on the outer 8 sectors of the magnetic media and cannot be read.

    Or maybe you forgot to change the order of your boot devices. Put the hard drive first and see if that solves it.

    Or u may have some usb devices pluged in, so try to remove them,

    and check the Bios boot order... (Per- MAILpup)
