Run HDD diagnostics -

Start with SeaTools (for DOS) --> SeaTools for DOS | Seagate

Burn ISO to CD with ImgBurn --> The Official ImgBurn Website

ImgBurn - Select "Write image file to disk" -

Boot with SeaTools CD.

If SeaTools comes up OK, run HDD manufacturer's diagnostics --> Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.
