My son was using his laptop which is running windows 10. It got banged near the keyboard right around the HDD. ON a reboot he got a BSOD. I took the hdd out of the system and ran the sentinel HDD software with the drive in an external box via usb2 connection. It found that there were 129 bad sectors and 400 week sectors. Can the drive be fixed or should it be replaced. I tried using the repair tools from windows but it seem to run for a long period of time and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I could run it over night to see if it advances or not. I am running it via my laptop so I am not sure it that is slowing it down or not.

 

Open to any suggestions and help.

 

Thanks

The hard drive with bad sectors is considered unreliable and it should be replaced as soon as possible.

OK is there a way then to get windows on a new HDD. I have an extra one from another laptop I recently replaced. Both originally came with windows 8 and were updated ti windows 8.1 before they both went to windows 10. I can always transfer the info over via my external HDD case and USB 2 connection.

You put it in and it should be detected and therefore you should be able to install Windows on the new HDD.

Thanks I will do. I am just formatting the drive now. If you have a link to the DL that would be great might save me a bit of frustration.

No, you have to create the iso on another PC then burn it onto a disk or put it onto usb drive.

Make sure you burn the contents of the iso file and not the iso file itself. I recommend a ImgBurn software that does that for you, you just have to guide him to the iso file that you create.
