    This is my second attempt to recovery using the hidden image. The first attempt hung at an earlier point Loading Windows 7 ;( However on this attempt it has been over an hour on the "Setup is starting services" screen with a moving light under it.

    Does anyone have any reasonable idea how much time this process takes? Thanks in advance.

    Powered off after 2 hours.

    Seems that it could be BIOS version currently 1.2 needs upgrade to a more recent version so I'll have a look at that. Also possible issue with bootrec maybe.

    I'll update later :)

    It appears that the hard disk is damaged as chkdsk c: /r shows significant issues.

    Off to buy a new hard disk drive now ;(

    Did you think about an SSD drive instead of HDD?
    I replaced the HDD with an SSD drive and i have to say that i did not expect such great performance...
    The SSD drive is much better than a HDD and you will be really satisfied with SSD performance
