That recovery partition is on your hard disk.

If the partition is defective, then a copy will be defective.

Since you say that you can not run CHKDSK, then
you need to run SeaGate Tools For Dos from a CD disc.
You boot up the CD disc. You run the extended test.

I actually run hard drive test with R-Studio. And what defective (means bad sector was found) is the C drive and D drive but the recovery partition have no bad sector detected so I assume the recovery partition still work fine. What I think is that the installation is not completed due to the drive C that install to.

I do not have any CD-W with me now. May I know what is the purpose to run the test of the disk? Also, is it possible to run any test you asking for by connect the hard drive to another laptop through an SATA-to-USB adapter and run the test from the connected laptop?
