It all says.... bad hard drive. Download http://www.seagate.com/files/www-con...sDOS223ALL.ISO and burn it the same way as partition wizard. boot from it.

SeaTools for DOS tutorial

Do only these tests:
  • Short test - Runs a DST test against Seagate drives. If DST is not supported by the drive, Seatools runs a read test. This test takes about 2 minutes.
  • Long test - Runs a full scan of the drive. This is usually used to find and repair bad sectors.
