Also, it could be a hardware problem, the image damaged, the memory corrupted, the disk dying... etc. – Braiam Sep 6 '13 at 22:29
What do you mean by "nothing just happens" and "unable to boot"? What happens? Do you get a blank, black screen (or perhaps a blank screen with a blinking text cursor)? See My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it? – Eliah Kagan Sep 8 '13 at 18:49 - except this there was no other solution for to fix it. – YumYumYum Sep 8 '13 at 20:34
