I was given a DELL Latitude D810 laptop and was told it has some HDD issues and possible virus attack. I tried to install Fedora but it failed to install. So I went into the BIOS to see if I can get any info. Under the system info in BIOS it tells me that the HDD is not connected. I also have the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows, which has a HDD fix utility. Even this did not recognize the HDD. Further, when I go to command prompt in the Ultimate Boot CD and type C: it says cannot find the drive. What does this mean and what can I do about it?
If anyone has seen this issue and might know the solution, I would appreciate some insight into this issue and how to resolve it?
