    ISO images are there my friend ..... right in the link you gave. Copy the ISO image(s) to Ventoy USB and enjoy. Can Rufus hold/boot multiple ISO images?

    It can boot the iso, but I doubt it will load. I couldnt get Vista to load using ventoy so I would be pleasantly surprised if any of the hdat stuff does.

    Why not just do it the right way with Ventoy first?
    Ventoy set up in USB and Linux Mint installed on it. Will try and see if I can recover at least some of the data from the dead HDD tomorrow, too late here to do it now. Will update when I'm done.

    You'll have to tell us how easy it was to make the USB, etc tomorrow

    I'm just looking for the truth without seeing things being oversold for what they're not.

    Hi @scopio

    1. Contact HP Customer Support with the HDD Failure ID and check what the error code means and what they say. ( No information on the web about this failure ID QFKT99-86LBOE-MFPX6J-6OR803)

    2. My observation: The Surface Test reveals the first block itself is bad. Not a good sign.

    3. Please do check with Live Linux . ( I do not know about Ventoy and so would not enter into the Rufus vs Ventoy debate. I had used Rufus. Now of course I do not use anything but my rusted brains - retired ) On my part I would recommend you to go through my guide here on using Lucid Puppy. If you so desire you can use it. Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer - Windows 10 Forums ( You can apply this to the failed HDD in the external enclosure. You have to mount this HDD and check whether you can recover any data.)

    4. Since you ran checkdisk, I presume that you can see the HDD in Windows Explorer. Please post a full screenshot of Windows Disk Management with only the faulty external HDD plugged in. (To be focussed on it and avoid clutter, remove all other plugged in external storage devices.). Guidelines here:
    How to Post a Screenshot of Disk Management
    Also post a screenshot of how this external HDD looks like in MiniTool Partition Wizard - the very first screen that appears when you launch it. Let me assess the situation.

    5. Also install the Trial version of Hard Disk Sentinel and post the screenshot showing the external HDD's health- the very first screen and any error message that may or may not appear. Hard Disk Sentinel Trial version - HDD health and temperature monitoring

    I think your hands are full now but my hands aren't till I get all the above information ( Also specify the make/ Model No and capacity of the HDD)

    Have a good day . Your day starts now.
