I had Windows Vista installed on my laptop and then it started coming up with this error. So I copied all the files using TestDisk and then formatted.
I copied all the files back to the hard drive but it still came up with the error, even though the hard drive works fine, I can read all the files on it when I connect it to another laptop using a HD enclosure and no issues. But it just keeps coming up with this error, I even tried booting it with the HD enclosure (USB) but it didn't work either (on either laptop), the same error comes up.
I made sure that the hard drive is first on the boot order and nothing else was connected when I tried it.
I then backed up the Windows Vista files using TestDisk again, deleted them from the hard drive and copied all the files of my other laptop (Windows 8) to the same hard drive but it still comes up with the same error!!!
Even though the laptop that has Windows 8 works fine and I copied all the files from it. and the hard drive doesn't come up with any errors and I can read all the files on it when connected to the Windows 8 laptop (HD enclosure).
Please help! I don't know what to do anymore. Thanks
