Possible Hard disk failure

I think I may have a hard disk failure, as on boot up I get message no bootable disk. I have tried reinstalling the Xp os and am unable to format the hard drive and start load up of OS.

Does any one have a good way on confirm that it is the hard drive that is faulty or some other ideas.

Check cables are fully inserted at drive and motherboard end.

Have unpluged and re plugged in both power and data sata cable.

Please can you confirm how I do this?

Been into recovery console and tried fixmbr no response and fixboot said not drive to boot.
Then tried Bootcgg /rebuid and again replied not drive to boot
