A hard disk drive boot error (error codes 1962 and I999030X) can be caused by the following:

The start-up drive is not in the boot
sequence in configuration. Check the configuration and ensure the start-up drive is in the boot sequence.

No operating system installed on the boot drive.

Install an operating system on the boot drive.

The boot sector on the start-up drive is corrupted.

The drive is defective. Replace the hard disk drive.
