Excuse me, the first one that occurs is Error: The Bios has corrupted the Hw-PMU resources. Then it tries to load, fails, and shows a screen that says Checking Filesystems. The first check is fine, second check is fine, then on the 3rd check it says fsck.ext4: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/(our device): The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If it's valid or really contains an ext2 system then it's corrupt. After troubleshooting we determined that this is pretty much a hardware failure based on the circumstances surrounding the failure. It then drops into a shell.
I attempted to boot into a Redhat 6.2 boot disk but I struggled navigating through the Boot Bios to do it properly. It lists a Sata Optical drive, A C:/ hard drive, and the front USB, and Normal. None of them work.
