Hello, I was having trouble with my hard drive, it was going very slow. I ran hirens boot cd to go into mini xp, blue screen came up when trying to load mini xp.  found out it was a ntfs problem with hard drive. im running ubcd for scanning and remapping hard drive.  Can i use this hard drive again to put windows back on? or should i just get a new hard drive? 

 

thankyou for all responses

What are you using to "remap" the HDD? On UBCD I would select Parted Magic at the Menu Screen. At the desktop select Disk Health and run the short test first. If it passes run the long test. I assume you have recovered your data off the drive first before doing any scanning.

You should get a new hard drive; it is not possible to repair modern drives.

Do you need to recover any files off of the old one?

thankyou for replying to my message, sorry i havent replied earlier, very busy at work. today, started parted magic and did the short test, and it passed. now im doing the extended test.  I did get what i needed off that hard drive, and i ran a virus scan on that hard drive, which came back with alot of malware. I deleted all the malware.   if the extended test comes back clean, could i reinstall windows on that?

Yes; but, to be completely safe, choose the advanced options and delete all of the partitions on the drive and then click Next.  That way, you won't inadvertently have malware survive the reinstall.
