That is indicative of an Hard drive problem, that is shown when the MFT is borked

From the CD access the command prompt and type in the following command

chkdsk c: /r

Once it has completed then try a reboot to normal windows

Unfortunately it looks like you may need to re-install windows

Somewhere along the line Bitdefender removed the wrong system files

Would installing a new hdd in secondary slot and installing windows on that allow me to access the information and files on the original? My main concern is retrieving invaluable pictures an files saved to the hard drive.

You can use a PE type installation that will enable you to backup any data that it can

Download Peazip to the desktop
Run and install the programme
As it installs this page will show, deselect the AVG ticks
Press decline and it will then install cleanly

Download the following files to the desktop .. Right click the links and select save as...then select desktop

Rufus

OTLPE_standard

Right click OTLPE on your desktop and select ..Open as archive

Posted Image


Select OTLPE standard

Posted Image

Click Extract, ensure that desktop is selected

Posted Image

Insert the USB stick Then run Rufus
Posted Image
Select the ISO file on the desktop via the ISO icon.

Press Start Burn
Posted Image

Once the USB has burnt then boot using the USB and backup any data you need to keep

Alrighty. But what about the installation of another hdd? I have another seagate sata 3 that I can install. Hasn't even been used. Will I be able to access the old hdd files after install? That is if I go that route?

Yes set the bad drive as slave and then you should be able to access all data. You may need to take ownership of the files to copy them
