Hey, my (post?) boot screen is getting stuck at this error "3rd Slave Hard Disk Error. Press F1 to Resume." Its a Asus M5 A78L-M motherboard. A Seagate ST2000DM001 HDD. Could it be my CD/DVD or did my HDD fry?
Found the Win 7 disk, opened up the CMD prompt in the repair tools, used diskpart -> list disk to see if its showing anything. Only Disk 0 showed with the amount of space left on my HDD (about 127gb) on both "size" and "free" areas.
Well, there is precious data on that HDD that I would be worried about losing. The MB would be more easily replaced to me at this point.
And it will take some time. The 1.5 GB download will take an estimated 23 hours with these ludicrous speeds, so there's that. I will also need to buy a CD with that amount of space. Would a USB flash or external HDD do the job?
