Need command at boot up to access disk image to remove corrupted partition and fresh install

If there a corruption on the hard drive you might not be able to boot up on it. Instead try downloading Ubuntu for the desktop. This should allow you to boot up using the CD, don't install the software just use it from the cd, it should give you access to the hard drive.

repair hard drive hey guys - i've had 2 500gb sata 2.5s fail, one was quite new and working fine externally, i formatted it and installed it on a customer's laptop (she left the charger out during updates and it cut out), she then gave it to me to reformat, i left the charger out during install, now it wont even format, i've tried chkdsk and hdat2, and a few other programs for sector recovery, it spent hours after 32% and i turned it off, now it wont even go past 1%. does anyone know of a decent FAST hdd repair tool that can rejuvenate hdd's? it's not physically damaged or anything and seems a shame to just sell them off for cheap, i've got a bunch here.
