Windows 7: Disk boot failure, Insert system disk and press enter


13 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (desktop) / x64 (laptop)
 
 

I don't think there's any from the tools provided that will fix the problem. The Disc Wizard Setup for Seagate HDD only gives the option to create backup and image restore, create bootable media, manage image backups, and clone disc. Is there any software out there that will fix the bad sector of a HDD?

i think not..because the problem not cause by the software but cause by the physical HDD,
i suggest you to slave your hdd to the other PC and backup your data as much as you can (as you need) and then you can buy a new one hdd.
even what software can make it run. but that's cause by bad sector and is the physical of the hdd so difficult to fix it permanent.

You want Seatools Diagnostics from Seagate: SeaTools Seagate

Burn to CD, boot and run the full scan followed by Disk Check

Dude, test don't seem to be available whenever I attempt to do any kinds of testing with the HDD. It always shows 'Test Unavailable' to the Test Status on the interface of the software.

Update: I was able to run a short generic test with the HDD, and it passed the test. Long generic test failed -- probably caused by a bad sector in the HDD.

Are you booting the CD version? Did you run Disk Check from Windows 7 DVD command line?

Go back to the SeaGate website.

This time download Seagate Tools for DOS.

burn the downloaded .iso file to a CD. Simply click on the file and Win 7 will prompt you to insert a cd/dvd into the cd drive.

After successful completion of the burn,
put the cd into the cd drive and boot to the CD Drive.

Run the test.

Thanks dude, I already got it fixed though. I had it fixed at using the local disc error-checking. There were really bad sectors in the HDD.
