    We already found out that it could be due to a HDD failure, but there is a problem with the new one.
    Well I think I'm gonna test out a third hard drive.

    Connect the new hard drive
    Insert the installation media
    Insert the rescue media
    Boot from the rescue media,
    Open command prompt and type:
    Code:
    DISKPART
    LIST DISK
    SELECT DISK 0 
    DETAIL DISK (to make sure you got the hard disk)
    CLEAN
    EXIT
    EXIT (this one gets you back into the install program.

    Just asking could I use seatools to check if my hard drive is failing??

    By the way I don't think the hard drive is faulty I get the felling it might be my power supply.
