ALL OF A SUDDEN MACHINE TRIED TO REBOOT??
AND WENT INTO A LOOP . . . TRIED NON DISTRUCTIVE RECOVERY . . .. NO CHANGE . . THINKING ABOUT THE "INSTALL MASTER BOOT RECORD " IS THERE A SPARE ONE IT RESTORE WILL INSTALL . . . DO I DARE TRY IT? IF PROBLEM IS IN MBR THEN EVEN A FULL RESTORE WOULD NOT WORK?? . . .ANYBODY HELP????
You have provided some good information, but more detail is needed.
Is the system still under warranty? How long ago did this start? Have you added any new hardware or software?
Your reboot issue might not be hard drive or MBR related. Disconnect everything not needed for booting. Even disconnect keyboard and mouse to see if it will get to the Windows Desktop.
If that works, start adding until you get the reboot problem again.
If none of that helps and you need to recover data from the computer, buy or borrow a hard drive you can boot to for the computer and when you are able to boot to Windows, you can back up your important data, then wipe the drive and reload Windows or leave it blank as extra storage capacity depending upon your desire or circumstances.
Let me know if you have questions.
