Trying to boot PC yesterday and this morning and receiveing various errors. Staretd with a BSOD, now getting "error Loading Operating System" or tries to load XP gets so far and stops, cant load in safe mode either.

Is the Hard Disk dead, the BIOS seees it OK. This is when you realise that backing up data is good.....

Go into bios and see if it can see HDD

Sorry should have read properly If bios can see it should mean that it is still working, you could try repair install that will install over the top and not loose all of your data.

disconected one of the HDDs and when I started Windows it forced a CHKDSK. Loads of errors reported and fixed, looks fine now. Thanks for the help
