Hardrive Partition Is corrupt

Dear Master,

I had a Seagate 40Gb, my hard drive wont boot up the windows.
I try to re-install my windows to solve the problem, but when i try to format it
the windows setup say that "The disk may damage".
I didn't give up. I use the disk manager and seatool to format it and use zero fill drive, low level format. At the first time my hard drive problem look like solved. i can install the windows back and make 2 partition. but no longer than 1 day. i can boot up the computer again. i try to look the partition on linux, it say that the partition is corrupt. I try to format again and again. but the result is always same. After i finish install the windows, 1 or 2 day the disk comeback to damage.

Please all master, do you have the answer for my problem. Thanks for your help before.

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.

How do I make 4 partition on a 40GB hard disc. What are the proceedings.


Boot up with the Windows XP installation CD
Follow the screen instructions -
Delete the existing Partition.
Create a new Partition (1st) but do not make it the maximum partition size - enter 1/4 of the maximum size.
Create another Partition (2nd) make this the same size as the 1st Create another Partition.(3rd) make this the same size as the 1st
Create another Partition (4th) make this the remaining max. size.
Format the Ist Partition Full NTSF (not quick format)
You can now proceed to install Windows on the 1st Partition.
After Windows XP has been installed and the computer's device drivers, go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Disk Management then allocate a drive letter to each of the Partitions then NTFS Format each of the Partitions.
Now each of the Partitions should indicated as Healthy.

Slave is ok but master freezes...


you can install even if it is a slave disk. also you can try setting the jumpers to master mode, check the sides of the hdd, it has a jumper setting and set it to master, using the shorting pin, just plug it out and connect it to the right setting

I am adding a seagate 320 g drive to my dell 4300 dimentions.. i have one ribbon.. with black(end socket) and grey(middle socket).. i have a maxtor already installed..the jumper was set to master on slave...


First of all make sure that your maxtor drive is jumpered for cable select and connected to black connector. Make sure Seagate drive is also configured for cable select and then connect to grey connector. If the Seagate drive is brand new you will need to initialise and partition the disk once recognised by Windows

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.

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
