Yes, @magicandre1981. The 3rd drive tests fine with Crystal Disk Info.

Running startup repair 3 times in the same session did not fix it unfortunately.

I created a system repair disc, and ran startup repair, but it couldn't fix any issues.

I burnt the ISO as a bootable DVD, but when I try to boot from it, I receive a message: Attempting Boot from CD-ROM. Missing Operating System.

This is how the HDD looks. I will try option 1.

@Karan: no one suggested I try a different HDD, because I stated I have already had the same symptoms with 2 HDD.

In BIOS, the HDD is the 3rd boot device, behind CD/DVD, and USB, which is okay, however, next to the HDD entry is the word [disabled]. A DPS Self-Test on the drive, in BIOS, produces "Test failed. Drive replacement recommended. Completion Code: 7".
