Okay, I ran HDD Regenerator in repair mode for 5 hrs, here are the final results:
2636 sectors reallocated
110 delays detected
0 sectors remain bad
1060 sectors recovered
0 new bad sectors appear
0 bad sectors reappear
While it's great to have the drive repaired, I still have the original problem of booting into the Dell nag screen. As to anyone's disdain of my using the term 'nag screen', I'm just calling a pig a pig. They could have added a counter and terminated it after 5 iterations...but they didn't. They could have added a convenient button that allowed the owner to redact it...but they didn't. I could stop calling their products garbage...but I won't.
Perhaps a dozen years ago, Dell created a proprietary cable for their computers that when replaced with an apparently identical standard issue cable, fried the motherboard because the pins were reversed. Since then, they have been responsible for many other proprietary nightmares. I guess the lesson is supposed to be 'Buy Dell'...
I'll install SeaTools and examine the options, but I think at this point it's become more a BIOS problem than a harddrive problem. Thanks out to everyone, especially Night Hawk!
Anyone have any ideas as to how to remove the nag screen boot in BIOS?
