I have a Dell D610 laptop. I had a hard disk crash with no backup and no recovery medium. I purchased a used replacement hard disk which passes all diagnostics with the exception of the Smart Short Test. I ordered a disk recovery set from Dell and in attempting to install Windows, I get the following error: "An unexpected error (1025) occurred at line 5218 in d:\xpsp\base\boot\setup\setup.c." The hard disk passes the Read, Seek and Verify tests at every block location and the CD/DVD drive passes its diagnostics too. Originally I suspected a defective CD since the error occurred on device d:. I ordered a replacement CD from Dell and I receive the same error. I don't know what to do next.

Why would you purchase a used hd? I've honestly never heard of that before. New drives are not that expensive. I'm guessing there's a problem with the hd.

It was cheap and came with a 90 day warranty. Do you think I should replace it?
