    moment of despair.

    i am seriously in a bad mood right now. for some odd reason, when i restarted windows, i keep getting disk read error has occured.

    i tried runnign startup repair, disabling intel SRT, re-connecting the drive, doing cold boots, etc etc.

    right now, im gonna try to see if i can view the contents of the drive in ubuntu.

    i really need to get a new drive. this is the last known working drive i have and i would have to it fail on me. it was used when i got it btw.

    i am able to access the hard drive and its files from ubuntu. but i dont have a spare hard drive to copy them to.

    i did try making a bootable usb stick loaded with chkdsk and that ran fine but still didnt solve the issue.

    i also used an mbr fix utility but that still shows the same error.

    right now im using seagates seatools to see if this could find any hardware fault with the hard drive.

    any suggestions?

    What error are you receiving when you try to boot into windows?

    Let us know what seatools reports.

    I highly recommend buying another hard drive. Not the cheapest way, not the easiest way, but my trust of that drive is shot.

    Go and get a new drive. Format and partition it including one partition for moving your old stuff off the old drive.

    Hook it up as a secondary drive, copy your files over to that dedicated partition.
    Then hook it up as main drive, install OS on the other partition.

    i ran a short test and long test and seatools reported that the drive passed.

    i cant BUY another hard drive. so i will have to rip the one thats in the living room computer out and replaced it with two IDE drives in RAID 0. hope that works out for the family.

    ill be stuck with 160gb at this point. hopefully my black drive (500gb with 300mb used) covers it....all except my games. which are huge.

    Try also what info Crystaldiskinfo can get out of it. If it says fail or warning on some item(s), the disk is defect.

    its showing a caution on both my samsung drive and seagate drive.

    says something about reallocated sectors count. 7 for the seagate and 1 for the samsung.

    but i cant and dont want to use the samsung because it was being very slow to the point wher ei thought failure was going to happen. so i replaced it with a seagate.

    anyway

    i still cannot boot into windows with the sata mode in bios set to raid. i have to set it to AHCI just to get in.

    i tried reinstalling intel RST...but that didnt help.
