    I suggest, starting from basics:
    1. Check the disk.
    Download Kyhi's boot DVD/flash drive from the top of the software and apps section.

    If it does not report Good, you most likely need a new disk.

    2. Download Macrium Reflect's boot disk (free). (Should be easy to find).
    Attempt the repair sequence as here:
