If you have your important data on it you can try freezing your hard disk drive in a refrigerator in the freezer for may be 24 hours this may help you to detect your hard disk

Unable to detect my hard disk HM320HJ, after i m doing low level formatting using hdd low level format tool....


I believe low level formatting will leave the drive as raw. meaning there is no partition. You need to do an unconditional of quick format such as before installing windows. or install the drive in another working computer and access it through drive management witch will allow you to initialize and format the drive to an NTFS partition.

Tip

NO BOOTABLE DEVICE


When the computer/laptop cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message - "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key"

First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk.

If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.

A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.

To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

I have a Lenovo H430 Desktop & i Got a Seagate 3Tb Internal Hard Drive & i can't get the computer to detect the hard drive & everything i have tried & even Seagate tried nothing wo


hi..there...

why your lenovo H430 Desktop cannot detect your internal Hard Drive Seagate 3 TB ..because your Lenovo only support maximum 2TB Internal Hard Drive..

so the best thing to solve your problem is replace your hard drive and use only maximum 2 TB for your internal hard drive..

that's will make your lenovo works again

You can install the windows to follow this step.

Try connecting it to another computer.
If it is not detected, then either the disk-drive "inside" the unit is dead, or the "adapter" (USB-to-Disk-Drive) inside the unit is dead.

If the latter, disassemble the case, remove the disk-drive, and attach it as an "internal" hard-drive to your computer.

Formated Hard drive from Ebay


Hi,

Apparently you have tried most if not all of the basic install procedures.

If and when you connected it as a secondary or slave to a working/booting PC, was it auto detected at the CMOS/BIOS stage? If yes, then perhaps it is a partitioning/formatiing issue, if not then chances are that it is a hardware problem and the drive is dead.

Alternately, you can try using an external SATA/IDE Interface to USB such as a VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter or any comparable product. This would provide the SATA/IDE connections to your new hard drive as well as a USB cord to your PC's USB port.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

The drive will need to be extracted. The enclosure and/or drive has failed and is causing your computer to fail. Remove the drive carefully from the enclosure and test it in a good, known working stable enclosure...
