Thanks for any light you can shed on this mess...
If the hard drive is toast, you are out of luck. Seagate offers recovery services for bad hard drives, but there are no guarantees on a failed drive. Have you tried repairing the windows o/s. If you use the original Windows Release disc, it will examine the disc drive and find the current operating system, based on your input, it will attempt to repair the O/S without you loosing your data. YOU MUST BE CAREFUL TO SELECT THE CORRECT OPTIONS.
If the windows O/S CD has problems with your hard drive, then the next step would be to talk to seagate.
