    How many hard drives do you have? If you have the drives setup in RAID or connected to a RAID capable controller then you need to press F6 during the first stages of the Windows setup to load the SATA/RAID drivers for setup to detect the drive(s).

    Or the drive could have failed, try testing the drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.

    What is the exact error you got when trying to boot Windows anyway?

    And please post your computer specs.
