Track "0" is very important on your hard disk drive, the hard disk master boot record area (MBR). Track "0", once damaged, will severely damage the hard disk master boot program and partition table information, and the hard disk can not be boo. But we can use hard disk drive repair software DE (DiskEdit) to repair the track "0" damaged hard drive.
First download PCTools 9.0 to your local hard drive, because the file if very large in size, and can not be run in the FAT32 format hard drive, it would be better to burn it to a CD-ROM. Of course, if there is FAT16 formatted hard disk partition, PCTools can also be put on that partition.
Preparing a system boot floppy disk (or bootable CD-ROM), and put the boot disk into the floppy drive and restart the system (be sure to load the CD-ROM drive), and then insert the PCTools CD-ROM and enter the DE CD-ROM directory, then run the DE and enter the main interface, an information window will pop up to prompt DE run in read-only state. Press enter, the program prompts the user to select which file to open, just press enter to open the default document. After opening a document, press the Atl key to activate the function menu, select "Options (option) → Configuration (Configuration)" menu. Press Enter and enter the configuration window, use the "Tab" key to point the cursor onto the "Read Only" (read-only) option, and then press the space bar before the option "√" to disable it, finally press "OK" to Save your settings.
When return to the main interface, select "Select (select) → Drive (equipment)" menu, and then z list of drives appears, point the cursor to the "Physical" (physical disk), press the space bar to select it, then select the " Drives "(equipment) in column" Hard Disk "(hard disk) and press ENTER.
After return to the main interface, choose "Select → Partition Table (partition table)" menu, select and enter the hard disk partition table. If the hard disk has multiple partitions, then partition 1 is the C drive partition, the partition is started from the hard disk 0 cylinder. Now change the "Beginning Cylinder" (the starting cylinder) from 0 to 1.
After changes being made, press Enter, then the hard disk drive software will prompt asking whether to save the changes, select "Save" (Save) and press OK. Then you can press the Esc key to exit. Restart your computer, press the Del key to enter the BIOS settings, and it will automatically check BIOS hard drive settings, and you should be able to see the hard drive "Cylinder" (stigma) decreased 1 than the original, save and exit, re-partition, then format the hard drive, and the repair work is complete finished.
Mate... I don't know why you are loading all this information into numerous threads within the forums; but you are doing it all the wrong way.
Clearly you consider that you have something to offer the community; so you should be putting that info into published hubs, from which you will gain page views, fans and income potential.
If you publish your content then I'm sure you will do well!
BTW: Welcome to HP and good luck.
Good article, and most certainly I will add to my repair software tool collection, but you really should post to a Hub for better publicity!
Maybe - a good idea would be to make a hub about it rather than starting four posts about it.
We know that hard drive store all data. But technical issue would be occur any times. Recently my hard drive was not reading and then I format the drive. But lost my data from drive and searching the data recovery service center for getting my lost data.
Enjoyed reading the article above , really explains everything in detail, the article is very interesting and effective. Thank you and good luck for the upcoming articles. I consider this process but now there are many new ways for formatting the system like USB as been approached. But this way you blogged is useful one.
