If it still comes back not installed or if it shows as bad, then replace it as seen here; Then you will have to install Windows onto the new one as seen here; You can create your own Windows 10 install media for free as seen here; If the hard drive shows as healthy in the scan, try to reinstall Windows.

Q: What if I cannot switch between Legacy and UEFI?
A: If you cannot manage to switch between UEFI and Legacy or it does not work, just skip that step. What was the result of the diagnostic scan?
Q: It says I can’t enable the legacy option ROMS with PTT enabled
A: Go into the Security Tab and try to Disable PTT Security. If that does not work, then skip that step, and continue with the rest of the video. If you cannot locate the options to switch between or if switching does not work, then skip that step and continue with the rest of the video 🙂
What was the result of the Diagnostic Scan?
Q: What key do you press to access the diagnostic test?
Q: What if the factory reset does not work?
A: Newer computers are starting up so fast these days that the Factory Reset from the Startup menu is becoming more and more obsolete. In that case, skip that step and continue with the new install of Windows 10;
Q: What if the Hard Drive fails the test?
A: If your Hard Drive fails the test, you will have to replace it as seen here; Then you would need to install Windows to the new drive as seen here; You can make your own Install Media Free from Microsoft as seen here;
Q: What if the test says the hard drive is not installed?
A: That means its either bad or loose. I would first try ‘reseating’ the Hard Drive. That is where you unplug it and then plug it back in, making sure its properly plugged in and secure. Try the scan again. If it still says that its not installed, then its most likely bad and needs to be replaced. You can see how to do that here; You would also then need to install an operating system onto the new one as shown here;
Q: What if changing the settings in BIOS didnt help and the scan passes everything?
A: If changing the settings in BIOS did not help, and the diagnostic scan showed all components to be healthy, then its most likely an issue with your operating system. Reinstall it as seen here; You can make your own Install Media Free from Microsoft as seen here;
