SEAGATE HARD DISK DRIVE PROBLEM...

Good day experts...

I have 40gb seagate hard disk drive. When I try to install it with windows xp operating system the computer would give an error which is "error loading operating system" after i was able to create partition. I tried installing it with Windows ME Edition and would run install normally. What would be the problem of this hard drive i have?

thank you...God bless... I bought it new, the Hardrive is read by the pc but when i try to install XP, the XP setup doesnt detect the SATA drive.

How can i correct this problem?

Seagate raw drive


Your data is already gone. The drive is raw. No partition no format.
here is a link to a free data recovery program, this probably wont work but may be worth a try

SEAGATE HARD DISK DRIVE PROBLEM...


Hi,

I am venturing a guess, but it could possibly be your memory and not your hard drive.

Additionally, you can partition and format the 40Gb HD in a second PC using a third party utility such as Partition Magic which would also allow you to verify the integrity of the hard drive

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hardrive Partition Is corrupt


As i review your explaination, there might be a problem in your hard drive. There so many problems i encountered in the hard drive i encountered like that. However, some problems can be fix using your solution and the other can be fix by replacing the BIOS Battery, and sometime the error in the hardrive is cause by a memory fault. If you are sure that the memory, motherboard, and the bios battery is good and working properly. I recommend you to replace your hard drive that the inconsistency problem will be fined.

Please do testing of your hard drive by connecting it to the other system.
