Hi all,

Recently I bought a new NAS with the idea to put all my data from my Home Made Server to that NAS.
But, ... I was in the proces of checking what to keep and what to trash, my girl said last week... Is there a bird on you're computer-room? I said a bird what? So I went to my computer-room and the hard drive was clicking.
Turned off the PC, turned it back on, 12 clicks...
I thougt, dammm why just before going to backup everything :S

I connected a terminal to the disk.
I have 2 ST2000DL03 disks, so already did a PCB Swap.

Well, I checked the other drive and that one is OK, also the messages in the terminal, so my terminal connection is OK to begin with.

But the dead drive, when I connect the Terminal to it, is says:

Boot 0x40M
Spin Up

And that's it... nothing more, nothing less...

So, maybe I am lucky that the heads / pre-amp and platters are okay, but not the motor of the drive itself.

Can that be a good conclusion? I am also thinking of a head swap (drive is already dead, so... why not)
If I can get data back it would be superb!

But, How do I get passed the :
Boot 0x40M
Spin Up

....

Any ideas?

Your drive has dead heads and likely media damage is nothing you can do about it, take it to a professional if you want your data back... just saying
