    the only wat to launch windows from a cold start is to use ctrl+alt+del and then it boots up.
    When starting it up from a cold start up the bios does not see the hdd but after using ctrl+alt+del and booting into windows and then resart windows but not powering it down and then go into the bios it sees it. This issue is only when I completly power down and start up

    Typically the result of the drive aging and not spinning up fast enough upon power on. Not likely on an HP, but some BIOS versions allow a boot delay to be set to account for this type of drive issue.
