    Seagate's Seatools USB bootable utility - blank screen and hanging


    As the title says - the USB drive boots okay, the Seatools menu is displayed, I select the GUI option, everything appears to be loading but then on Loading Extensions it seems to be working then stops and a blank screen is displayed.

    Any thoughts on why this may be or a workaround please?

    Or is there a better diagnostic and repair tool than Seagate's Seatools for their own drives?

    Thanks

    I now have the exact same behavior as you had a year ago.

    I'm curious if you ever found a solution.

    I tried this yesterday, same thing happened to me. Seems like Seagate abandoned this software.
    I may take a picture of the screen and send it to them, see what they say.

    The Windows Seatools failed the short DST, advised the "bootable"; turned out to be a motherboard/cable problem,
    blew out the dust and plugged the same cable into an adjacent sata socket, problem resolved

    Mine is an AMD board (in case it's relevant), FX 4300 CPU,
    - Northbridge: AMD 760G
    - Southbridge: AMD SB710
