Something has changed the boot sequence in the startup, make sure in the bios it boots from C: and not from server or USB, then click save and reboot.

Change the order of boot from DVD to the Windows option 2...the other thing is it could be trying to boot from a DVD already in the DVD drive so make sure there is no disk in there too.

If it still doesn't boot with Windows disk as option 1 then the hard drive boot files have corrupted.

Did the Windows come pre installed or do you have a USB/DVD with Windows on?

Sounds like it will either be repair Boot files or the Hard drive has physically corrupted, if uts the latter then thats a new Hard drive.

I personally don't buy MSI or ASRock after so many problems, pre installed pre built systems you don't have much choice though.

I would suggest either the motherboards sata connectors have failed, the sata cable failed (unlikely in my experience) or the hard drive itself has failed.

Does the Windows logo appear on screen at all or does it just not boot past the bios screen?

If the logo appears then its a corrupt file more than likely, if it does not appear then its probably motherboard or hard drive failure, without removing the hard drive and testing then with a pre installed windows you won't get it to fix itself, you will need an install USB or DVD I am sorry to say.

Don't forget if you plug in a USB for booting you have to tell the bios to look there before it looks for the internal hard drive, as if theres an error the hard drive will over ride it looking for other places to boot from.
