My four years old IBM 40GB HDD (IC35L040AVER07) got corrupted. Suddenly I’m not able to load windoze anymore.
When I run drive fitnes test (IBM/Hitachi DFTv4.02) it tells me there are some bad sectors and that I should run sector repair tool. When I do so, the doze windows just freezes after a few minutes.
Also tried Winterna*ls disc commander to no avail.
I have done search and found some posts about HDD regenerator, but this is useless because I can’t enter windoze anymore.
