Invalid opcode and no harddisk found

#1 Post by Erik0 » Thu Mar 12, 2009 3:32 am

Hello,

I have some problems with UBCD, I'm getting an invalid opcode error when I'm trying a diagnostic harddisk tool. I want to check my harddisk on errors but it can't find my harddisk or it gives an invalid opcode. Does anyone knows what the problem could be?

I thought it had something to do with sata, but it doesn't matter or I set the SATA-controller in the bios on AHCI or Compatible.

I had those problems also with Hiren's bootcd, I tried anything but it won't find my harddisk. The reason I want to check my harddisk is because I'm getting more problems with windows every day, last time windows installer couldn't even format my harddisk! Has someone a solution?

Best regards,

Erik

Download UBCD50b12 and try the grub4dos menu (helps in some cases when you get an invalid opcode).

Take also a look at:

Thanks, but I've already tested my harddisk by using ubuntu badblocks, because ubcd still doesn't work.

Regards,

Erik

Wow..thats bad...have you tried the recovery console off of the windows installer cd? gives you options to format and chkdsk aswell.

But sounds like your hard drive is on its last legs and i suggest you get a new hard drive if you cant format/chkdsk and you continue to get more problems everyday.

Another option is to use knoppix (burn it to cd) and see if it detects the hd (people say it does even when nothing else could) and run ntfsfix from command line. But if you have to goto this length to fix the drive..again cant state it more than enough, sounds like your hd is dying and will go out soon and you should replace it.
