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.

It could be some other hardware issue in the HP tablet.  Or it could actually be the hard drive, but your computer is not detecting it for some reason.

Hi, Just being able to see the contents does not mean the drive is going bad.

I would trust the built-in HP diagnostics result.


What I would do if it were mine is get a replacement drive and see if I could clone the failing drive to the replacement.


Good Luck
