I have used a Western Digital diagnostic tool to test my WD internal HD on my HP dv9820us laptop. The result diagnosed a failure, ostensibly because of a bad sector. I used a SeaTools for Windows test which provided the same result. I downloaded a SeaTools for DOS ISO test file (ZIPed) from the seagate.com website, with intent of burning a bootable CD-ROm to execute on my apparently faulty internal WD HD. The advice for this approach is that this method can correct (repair) bad sectors detected. However, I could not use either the ZIP file provided, or its unZIPed folder, to create a bootable CD-ROM. What might I be doing wrong, or, more approriately, what do I have to do to burn, successfully, the requisite bootable ISO-imaged CD-ROM?
I am attaching an MS Word 2003 document which describes my experience in this matter.
Appreciatively, Bruce (Arbyem)
