I have posted separately to my last so that you cannot miss it.
On post 24 my colleague rshaffer61 asked you to run chkdsk /r
Tutorial for running chkdsk in Vista\Win 7 located HERE.
I have just read the whole topic again and notice that you never posted the results, as after that suggestion by my colleague you were away for a number of days from the topic,
I wrongly presumed that you had run the chkdsk /r.
and the Seatools had now been suggested to confirm the report from chkdsk /r.
The message you mention that appears on boot on your post 32 - diskette seek drive failure MAY be accounted for if the computer does not have a floppy drive, but the BIOS still allows the floppy drive to be set as first boot device.
as per this link herehttp://en.community....t/19125045.aspx
