The PC is running Windows 10 upgraded from Windows 7 Pro. I have the Windows 7 Pro disk and wondered whether I could boot up with that and then check Device Manager for issues with the hardware.

Boot into the BIOS and check the UEFI settings. Windows 10 probably requires secure boot to be enabled.

Thanks Rubberman. I dont know what the UEFI settings are supposed to be as UEFI is not on my old workstation. I have enabled all drives though and changed ATA to AHCI which is the default and I was able to get Windows to start.

I hadn't been altering anything so wonder why my two hard drives are not displayed in the BIOS.
