My friend at work gave me his gals hp tablet saying it won't boot right. She had tried to do a recovery which is is on the hard drive but it fails...
So I've been looking at it, and did the same thing and it will not complete. I can go into bios and it will show the hard drive. When I run the diagnostic it says hard drive is about to fail. When I run the test on the drive, it actualy does fail.
I've taken the drive out of the laptop and put into a "superspeed usb 3.0 to sata" enclosure, hooked it up my computer and it will recognize without any issues. I see 3 partitions...one large, and 2 very small.
So my question is why does the drive act as if its failing and refuses to even let me try to load WIN7 on it, but i can see the drive on my computer when it is in the portable enclosure via usb?
I am running win7 64bit os.
