W7 install went wrong...actually installed fine, but after it hibernated it locked itself down, wouldnt come out so i resolved that by removing the CMOS battery for a while and then reinserted then it would boot, but NOW the W7 install is bad and wont repair or go into safe mode. suspect bad boot sector ini or whatever it is.

Brandon new seagate baracuda i need to do a low level format but need a bootable disk, cant seem to find a way to make seatools bootable.
Suggestions/links?
Thanks

Aside: XP pro install on seperate HDD ALSO bluescreens after cmos clearing.

Any ideas what happened?

UPDATE:
Checked bios and found something under configuration for the sata to boot as IDE or something and now all disk boot without issue.

Go to seagates site and look for SeaTools for DOS

Regisiter :huh: , then download the ISO. I use ImgBurn to "Write an image file to Disk".

You might want to review Seatools for DOS tutorial before you run it.

just wanted to update on this: It was simple, somehow the bios got reset so that the sata drives weren't being recognized as ide or something along that line i switched it and everything boots fine.
