May be physical damage in HDD, use UBCD 3.4

by ismail_ngr In reply to all updated and more prob ...

Hi Nick,

I thought your HDD was damaged in the platters. So try to use UBCD 3.4 from http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

1. First download the UBCD 3.4 from any mirror sites.

2. Burn to a CD-R media and connect only your faulty HDD in the PC and select boot order first from CDROM in your BIOS.

3. Then selct from Hard Disk tools menu from the UBCD 3.4. Most of HDD tools are loaded in the single CD.

4. If your problem are solved contribute few bucks on the UBCD project. If not reply be back. Thanks in advance.
