Sandro Posted January 19, 2016 Report Share Posted January 19, 2016 Hi. A friend of mine has an old IBM Thinkpad laptop; but the HDD (Hitachi 40 GiB) doesn't start (run). Using SysRescueCD , i've seen in the kernel messages at startup that that there are messages about troubles for block (sector ?) 0 I've tried a "zero-fill" using dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda but nothing is changed; then a # badblocks -svn /dev/sda But it doesn't found errors. Then i think (last chanche) to make a "real old style" method for attempting to repristinate the hdd (if possible). Someone know a right method ? Thanx very much for any suggestion.
