Alright, so download the SeaTools DOS and burn to a CD and boot it from there?

OKay. I've started the long test. It's doing that clicking here as well. Also, just for curiosity, what's the acoustic test?

Also...if it does turn out to be a hard drive failure....why would it occur right when I attempt to do a clean install? All this time it's worked perfect, no flaw. And I figure if I had never began this, it would still be in working order with no clicking..

I would replace the HD Drive, than do the clean install.

You can try to get the Seagate tool to repair with the long test, but you will most likely be trying to reinstall every week.

Perhaps I can disable these updates and get vista installed..
