DavidE, how did that go? did you solve the problem that you was working on?

Yes, the problem i had was solved with Seagate support.
The problem I had was different than yours, but they helped me fix it.

In the end the solution for MY problem was solved using Seatools for DOS and Seagate support looked at my logs, etc., to figure it out ...

I was happy to have a vendor support me and fix an issue ...

I burned the file to cd, and booted the laptop.

When the 3tb drive is connected, it seems to pause everything so the laptop does not function. But if i take the external cable out then the laptop starts to function again.

But i tried setting the boot priority to cd drive but nothing seems to be happening.

I just see this screen and nothing else (scrnshot below).

After a few minutes (while the cd is still inserted, and external is not connected) the laptop goes to the desktop screen.

This is where the screen pauses when the external is connected after booting.

So, you can't boot from a bootable Seatools DOS disc you created/burned ?

Or, can you boot the Seatools CD if the 3 TB is not connected ?

That pic reminds me of the what i saw of the first Lunar landing back in the 60's

If i restart the laptop with the cd inserted (with seatools burned) and the external not connected, i don't see any options. It just shows the screen that reminds you of lunar landing back in the 60's.

If the external is connected then it pauses everything thats going on within the laptop until it is disconnected.

3. We may still try to visualize what is exactly there by viewing its content in bootice at sector level, save it and then try to rewrite a new MBR code.

Jumanji, are we still holding on to trying this i wonder?

Do you get a message to press any key to boot from the CD ?
For me this message is good for apx. 5 seconds, if i don't click something, Windows tries to boot from HD, not the CD.

I have my PC set to first try and boot from the CD/DVD optical disc...
If i don't have a bootable disc in the drive, it flies (1 second) though the prompt to boot from CD ...

ya, I am still holding on. No need to be in a hurry. I am still waiting for DavidE to see whether he recommends Paragon rescue kit.

I just want to ask you whether you are able to get into onetime boot menu by hitting the appropriate key as soon as your system starts booting.
