Sounds like a crashed HD. Restart in the Restore Partion and check the S.M.A.R.T. status of your internal HD. If you cannot start in the Restore Partition that has verified the disk needs to be replaced.

I had checked the SMART status earlier and it was okay. I can also start windows on the Boot Camp partition. If I replace the drive can I restore from Time Machine?
