I came here for help since I’d hate to RMA this HDD since I just got it and seems like I’ve been having a lot of broken stuff lately (memory, PSU etc.).
So the problem:
I got this HDD today, I installed it and I started running HD Tune errorscan. Then I accidentally told Firefox to download a file to the HDD and both Firefox and the HD Tune froze. I tried shutting them down from task manager, it didn’t work so I restarted the computer. Then all of sudden the POST seemed to take forever and when it got to BIOS it didn’t recognize the HDD. I tried booting into Windows and all I got was an endless loop of the Windows logo. I would really much appreciate any help I could get, thanks.

I used the motherboards own sata ports. I will try the other sata ports now (marvel or something…)
