Hi there aqarwaen,

For some reason, I can't really open up the screenshots.(most probably blocked)
Could you just say what they are about or upload them in another website?

As your system can't boot, you should either work with DOS tools or to attach the drive to another, working system. You can do so with SATA to USB adapter.

First, you can try to retrieve your data and after that you can just test the drive and see what is wrong with it.

Let me know in case you have some more questions,

If you can boot with a dvd, does that mean the dvd can write or ready to write the operating system in your hdd? If so, then your hdd is not dead yet. It's alive.
