I had this with a 3 week old HP (and a BIOHD-8 as well)

A temp fix at least, is to use knoppix, go to the partition program, and delete the main partition, and then add a new one  formatted to NTFS. You can then use the recovery discs.

You should also be able to access the drive via knoppix to recover data before you delete the partition, either to flash storage or across a network. I managed to recover about 55gb of data that way (I do a lot of video work)

My SATA2 port on the motherboard seems to be not working. I put DVD/CD on SATA1 and Seagate HD on SATA3. Now it passes diagnostic and BIOS detects HD.

    A better solution is to change the HD SATA port to IDE in BIOS. Then Vista recognizes the HD as ATA.

The product is compaqe presario CQ32701X desktop PC and the problem is..... window is not starting normally. when we did pc diagnosis (F9). while testing ST3500418AS (9VM79Z6S), drive, showing error...

If you are getting errors from the hard drive diagnosis, the solution is--replace the hard drive. Don't mess with it. You can install the defective hard drive as a second drive and possibly lift data from it. Keep messing with it and you may lose more data.

Error code:BIOHD-8

Rebooting forever is either memory fault or the HDD have corrupt system files. From the BIOHD-8, it sounds like HDD issue. Try download "HDD Regenerator 1.51" CD ISO, burn to DC and scan to whole Harddrive. This nice software is designed to recover corrupt/bad sectors. I had a friends PC falls into this case. 1 bad sector was found and recovered within 2GB from start where most Windows system files are stored. Then reboot and windows do a chkdsk automatically, and resolved!
