I have tried that several times and all with a different boot time and result.
no errors
the bios boots like normal and when reinstalling the os it boots the starting windows screen and flashing logo in normal time also the install selection screens appear in what seems to be the correct time.but it falls wat behind after this.
im leaning toward a bad hdd
next question is how do you get to the hdd.
i dont see any fasteners on the back.
this is an all in one desktop.
thanks

thyere should be a hatch in the back with 2 or 3 screws.

i would test the HDD as well as your RAM before removing anything.
