    The hard drive utilities, run from a floppy disk that is bootable, or from a bootable cd.

    There wouldn`t be much point in having hard drive utilities to test a drive, if you had to have a working hard drive.

    Regards Howard :)

    I suggest you send your hard drive to professional data recovery company.
