Any drive will work - but you have to make sure that its physical configuration matches your pc and that you reformat the drive since the format used for dvr use is not compatible .

Clicking Hard drive When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death". There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

The SATA RAID interface needs to be compatible with SATA revision V2.0. Check the drives with the Seagate diagnostic tool (download it from Seagate) for correct operation. This will also check / test the SATA interface. Connect the drives directly to a PC with SATA interface to do this. If proven OK then use the RAID board.Possibly there's a way to downgrade to SATA-1 using a Seagate tool.

If the control board actually burned, the only way to get data off of the drive is to replace the control board. The only way to do that is to use a clean room, clean suits and replace the control board.
I'd suggest contacting a local data recovery service, they have these items available.

It's going to be upwards of $500 to recover to data, probably not worth it.

You should be able to put the old hard drive in the new computer and connect it as a secondary drive. That all depends on the type of interface the new computer is using. Most new computers use SATA inferface for HDD now. You're old drive might be IDE. in which case you can't add it to new computer unless it also has IDE interface on new MB. If no IDE interface on new MB, you can use USB 2.0 to IDE or Serial ATA Drive Adapter Cable from Cablestogo.com to connect your old drive via USB.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

If you are installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive, Windows installation CD does not have a SATA driver, that is why it does not detect the hard drive. please click on this link and follow my instruction to install Windows on a SATA hard drive :-

Try downloading TESTDISK and see if the drive is detected on the List within TESTDISK. If it is then you may be able to restore the boot sector within TESTDISK.

You will need an external Hard drive adapter case. This will probably come with driver disk. If already and external drive it may have internal firmware which talks directly to the PC. Just install drivers, if any, and plug unit in. Follow screen prompts.

You do not say what OS you were installing, and Windows limits what you can do with the hard drive during installation. As you have found out, any power interruption during an installation will likely corrupt the process and make the system unbootable. If you can restart the install at the very beginning that may work for you. However, I believe the simplest fix will be to use a live system bootable disk and erase the corrupted partition table on the drive then restart the install as if it were a brand new hard drive. For that type of recovery I use gparted, which can be downloaded for free from http://gparted.org/livecd.php Gparted live can be used on CD, hard disk, USB, or even pxe boot. I would delete all the existing partitions that were created during the failed install, then restart the install from the very beginning as if it were a new disk.
