Thanks, ***** ***** the issue
It is the hard drive that has faulted.
No matter the software issue, we would be at least able to get to the recovery utility.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the Lifebook to have the harddrive replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
