Hi

I'm running a Gigabyte H87M-HD3 with three internal 2TB WD HD...
Windows 7 64bit...

Recently I've had issues with one of these HD showing as Uninitialized... and since I don't want to lose the data on the HD I followed the recommendation to use a free to try partition software (I think it was Partition Magic or something like that.) I started up the software and let it fix errors as it started up. The software crashed due to a 0/1 Error on the device. My PC crashed. Since then I have been unable to boot my PC...

Launching Startup Repair comes up with nothing as is unable to fix the problem.

Starting Windows normally goes as far as the logo screen with the cycling orbs, stops, a blue screen message flashes up and is gone before it can be read (because that's helpful,) and the system auto restarts.

Occasionally the system will start booting up then stop, start, stop... etc...like it's struggling to turn-over, but that's happened before and I've been able to boot up fine.

Please help.

From the sounds of it your HDDs are going bad?

Lesson 1 - stay away from 3rd party software that 'fixes' Windows errors.

You'll have to re-install Windows it looks like. And you'll probably have to reformat the stuffed hdd

They don't all cause issues, the OP just got unlucky (he must of told it to mess with BCD / MBR?)
