Hi there

Crjdriver was absolutely right. The Seagate HDD is new but it doesn’t work properly. Actually the store sold me a RENEW HDD, it’s not a brand new, it’s a Renew! And you are right, it’s the very culprit of the story. Even I installed Windows 7 pro 64 bit on it later, it still got the same symptom: booting into BIOS from a cold boot! So Windows 10 or windows 7 is not the cause!

So I bought another HDD, this time a Western Digital HDD (second hand too) as you said WD is better than Seagate (I used to believe that Seagate is number 1 in the market! Now I change my mind).

I connect WD HDD to the Asus motherboard and installed windows 7 pro 64 bit, then I shut down the PC overnite.

This morning I pressed the power button to turn it on (a cold boot) and…Windows start normally!

So the conclusion is: my Seagate HDD (a renew one) sucks! I will certainly cross Seagate out from my shopping list from now on!

Thank you for all of your supports. I highly appreciate that. if you know how to fix the sick Seagate HDD don't forget to show me for I ran CHKDSK to fix it but not work.

I will mark this solved for you. Hopefully you purchased a black drive and not a blue or green drive. The black drives are much higher quality.

The WD HDD I just purchased is attached here, unfortunately not the Black one, it may be a green one. I checked online and found that the black WD HDD is the most expensive one among WD HDD different colors. I’ll buy it next time.

But I found an online store which offers a “purple WD HDD 500 GB” brand new (not renew) only 17 USD, well, the price is not bad, and the seller guarantees that it’s genuine. I am quite interesting in that HDD.

However, there are tons of fake stuffs these days. The purple color of the HDD makes me a bit nervous.

The black drives cost more because they are better quality. Dual processors and dual motor supports AND a 5yr warranty. The green drives are 2yr warranties; that alone should tell you about the quality.
