is a list of drive check soft (free)........I dunno which you tried lol
some disk makers have low level format options that can "fix" some errors
by hiding them
I know Seagate and Maxtor have them


but any repair is just a temp measure ............even if you get it working will still need to swop drive sooner rather then later


any damage to the platters will only get worse in time

I'm looking to actualize computer. I know I had this option available the first time I saw tools thanks to the bootable USB.
But now, I have a message "the reader where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the reader, then try again".  :ummm: I never locked that thing for what I know.

I found a topic in French with somebody proposing to use the "invit command".
http://www.commentcamarche.net/forum/affich-28217024-impossible-de-reparer-windows-8
I never used that of my life - or maybe it was that on the old computers of 80's to high school?

Those directions require that you be able to reach the command line.  When you start the recovery program, does it have an Advanced Options?

Sorry, link was more for myself to don't lose it. The person talked to:

- write diskpart and click Enter
list volume and click Enter

A tab appears and a letter must indicate the OS

bcdboot c:windows /L fr-FR and click Enter

... then different possibilities if the invit above works or not.
I give up with W8 comp for tonight.
But I noticed several people that used Ubuntu had the same issue than me. Ubuntu could lock Windows, do you think???

Yes I have, thanks to the bootable windows USB.
Contrary to a lot of people I haven't the safe mode option, and another thing like possibilities (I don't remember for the other).
But I have the command line.

So, when you enter diskpart at the command line, it will open another window.  That window will accept diskpart commands, like "list volume".  We're doing that to determine that the disk is partitioned and already assigned a C drive.

That last command "bcdboot" is re-initializing the drive with a boot record.  This may defeat the lock, but the system is only 91% installed, so the system likely will still not work.

Do you think a ISO image of W8.1 can work in this case?

(don't be hurried to answer if you are always on forum, I'll be back tomorrow now. That leaves time for your own life  :mwah: )

I think that the ISO image written to a USB key would allow you to try to install W8.1.  Then installing drivers would be required, such as the video and sound to get it to work. 

Since there was trouble installing from the recovery partition, there's at least a 50% chance that the W8.1 ISO install will fail at the same point in the same way.

Just before to come on forum, I tested a CHKSDK command (sorry if I made dislexia). Is it logical there the machine thinks the hard disk hasn't issue? On any used sector?

CHK (=check) DSK(=disk) validates the file system structures.  It sounds more like there's something in the startup that's not right.

That's what that thing we were discussing yesterday  is supposed to fix.

Two things: I'm about to go do the weekly shopping with my wife and daylight saving starts tomorrow in the US.

Good morning!

Hi, Aelin.

I have another thing to take care of this afternoon.  Did you get a chance to try the "diskpart" trick?

I tried but a command was never accepted. Don't ask me which, I'm lost in numbers, letters and a lot of stuff I read today.
I need a break tonight. Maybe I try to work on a render for contest, don't know yet. But I think it will be the rest of weekend without W8 around. And Monday I'm not here until the night.

So profit well of the rest of weekend  :madfun:
