It means there are no partitions on the drive, or the partition-table on it is damaged or missing. The hard drive may have failed so you need to test it with drive maker's diagnostic software. The diagnostic software loads from a bootable CD so you can test it without needing Windows to do it. It's called SeaTools for DOS. Download the ISO file from here: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ Use IMGBURN on a working PC to create the CD from the ISO file: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/ Then boot your faulty PC from that CD and SeaTools for DOS will eventually open. Select the faulty hard drive and run the Long/extended test on it. Note: SeaTools for DOS requires either a PS/2 mouse or PS/2 keyboard because it does not load any USB drivers. m 0 l anandsrinu December 29, 2012 1:35:15 PM s got it thanq m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
