Did the computer work before the problem started? Or is this a new built computer?
What is the make and model? Or what is the hardware configuration?

Are you trying to do a windows repair, fresh install, just boot from the hard drive...?

Do you have a full copy of windows, an upgrade, or OEM recovery disc?

Check the cables to the hard drive, and make sure they are secure.

Boot into the BIOS, and make sure the hard drive is the first boot device.

If that doesn't help, then your friend is probably right.
