    If you cannot boot into Safe Mode and you cannot run in Normal Mode and you cannot do a repair, there's not much else to do but reformat and reinstall.

    Try CHKDSK again on the Recovery Console. I guess its a corrupt drive.

    Yes, the hard drive is probably toast, unless a low level format can bring it back to life. I'm afraid any data on it is lost... Backing up important data, before a hard drive crash, is not dificult any longer gesmom2
