testing hard drives


Overclocked Like A Mother
Hey all,

I would like to know if there is something out there that I can test the health of my two 320gig seagates.

I downloaded their seatools iso from their site, and burned up a cd, but sadly realized during the process that seatools requires PS2 mouse/keyboard. I tried my little usb2ps2 connectors and it wouldn't work.

I would need something to boot from cd like memtest86 because I have no OS's on the HD's and I am building a new Linux workstation for myself.


strange - I can use seatools for dos with my usb keyboard and mouse... get a hold of hirens boot cd and use the tools on that :)

Great thanks for the recommendation.

I have heard of Hirens boot cd, but never had a chance to try it.

I use USB mouse/keyboard (through a KVM even) and "SeaTools for Windows" works just fine (don't have to leave Windows). I've also used the CD version with USB mouse/kb and it worked fine.

The Ultimate Boot CD is good too, it contains all the various tools on the CD and I have never had issues running any of the tools using a USB keyboard!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
