My 1T external HDD won't format and reads as raw


I am assuming (because you did not tell me) that you are running a version of Windows. You need to open help and support and search under drive management. The drive is showing as raw because you have not yet created a basic volume or any partition structure.

Error code 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x871a6948, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000000)


This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).
You should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS . You can download it from
http://www.geekswhoknow.com/files/ntfsinst.exe
After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.
Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reinstall Windows and select the full format during the install

I formatted my hd making it slave in other system: now i m placing it back on my system then it is saying Primary IDE masterNONE; Primary IDE Slave SP0822N Then comes NTLDR MISSING


> formatted my HD

This deleted 99% of the files on the disk-drive.

> Primary IDE Master: NONE
> Primary IDE Slave: SP0822N

Good. Your motherboard has detected ONE disk-drive.

Do you have just one connected disk-drive on your PRIMARY channel, or do you have two connected disk-drives (via the 2 connectors on the one ribbon-cable on the PRIMARY channel) ?

If you have two drives connected via one ribbon-cable, you MUST set the 'master/slave/cable-select' jumpers on BOTH disk-drives, to identify which of the two will be the 'master' and which will be the 'slave'.

Also, check that the 'second' disk-drive is getting electrical power.

> NTLDR MISSING

Like I said, you deleted 99% of the files, including the 'NTLDR' file.
Your computer is trying to "boot" from the 1% of the files that still exist on the disk-drive, but cannot find the now-deleted file.
Perfectly normal, given that you have formatted the disk.

How to format IDE hard drive?


This drive is an IDE drive. The jumpers can be set on it to make it a slave.

Once set as a slave, you can identify the drive letter given to this drive and format it either at a command prompt: C:> format [drive:] /s (to make it bootable) or no /s to just format it.- OR within Windows: right click on the drive letter and select format.

Your operating system or Master Boot Record is corrupt. Which version of windows are you using?

It may be possible to repair the problem with your windows disk. Boot from the Windows disk but make sure you read the instructions for windows repair carefully because some options will format your hard drive.

To rescue the data here are some things I do:
Make a boot disk with USB support and transfer the contents of your drive ton an external harddrive. Or, you could place your hard drive in another computer as a slave drive and retrieve your files that way.

Missing file or corrupt windowssystem32 hal dll how to fix if I can't fix it can I do a full system restore with an xp disk and driver disk from another computer?


You can put in your Windows disk and boot PC from the disk drive and then select to repair, this will not format your PC and will replace your hal.dll file. fixing windows and keeping your personal files.

Usually this works, but if it can't fix the problem it will tell you then give you a format option, at that point turn off the PC, take out the hard dive, hook it up to another pc as a slave or external drive to back up your files, then put the thing back in your pc and format.

but try to use the repair option of your windows disk. there is hardly ever an actual reason for people to format

I want to get my files from my barracuda 7200.10 hard disk by running a windows 98 os from a hard disk from another pc. ive already run the win98 os but i dont think i set the my .10 to slave so i dont see...


Just remove the jumper of your hard disk to set it it to slave as you will see on the instruction pasted on your disk. If your disk is formatted NTFS, win98 will not be able to read your files use a machine with winxp operating system.
