Windows 7: Seagate external

I used the built in burner and then set the boot priority.

Then restarted with the cd/external connected. The beginning screen paused and went no further. I then took the external usb out and it took me into seatools for do.

But this might be no good if the external is disconnected.

X64 - download this if you want to run it on a Windows 7 64 bit system
X86 - download this if you want to run it on a Windows 7 32 bit system

Ok we have some luck... I let it wait and the external is still connected.

This is the next screen. The only option here is exit.

Should I restart and try again hoping seatools recognises the drive. Or maybe try the bootice instructions given?

Or you can call it a night and can continue whenever you feel. Either way is ok with me.

You can retry ...

I don't know what can be done to recover.
Jumanji or others may have suggestions that can help.

I tried again... This time the process happened much quicker but seatools still don't recognise the external.
