Hi,

The code means "Hard Disk 1 Quick Test Failure"

You will need to replace the hard drive. If you can still boot into Windows you should backup all your personal files.

So, what you need is a 2.5" SATA3 HDD or for performance gain a 2.5" SATA3 SSD

Examples:

On page 62 of the service manual, you can see the steps to replace the drive

You will need to reinstall the OS on the new drive

 

Hope it helps,

David
