    Hi all, got some trouble with (I think the hard drive) and I need to run some diagnostics. It won't boot though, so I need something bootable.

    I am looking at:

    Ultimate Boot CD
    Packard Bell diagnostic CD

    What do you use, and what do you think is the best?

    The UBCD contains numerous diagnostic tools, the most important ones in regard to hard drive diagnostics are the ones from the hard drive manufacturer's themselves. You can also download the same diagnostics or newer versions of them from each hard drive manufacturer, for example if you have a Seagate hard drive you would use/download the Seagate SeaTools diagnostics to test the hard drive.

    The PB diagnostics are likely similar but customized for PB.
