    Windows 8.1

    I booted seatool from my usb and when it scaned for the hard drive it said "No Hard Drives Found"

    I have no idea what to do know i have tried a lot of thing but i can seem to fix it. I could create small bootable partition but then i won't be able to use as much memory and i don't know where to back up my all stuff it is about 100g or more.

    i could format the HDD but i don't fell comfortable doing it because i have never done this before.

    Geez, that HDD is in a worse state than I thought!

    I would get it out of the lappie - insert it into a friends desktop's spare sata connection - backup what you can - then run a lo-level format on it.
    Depending on those resullts even run HDD regenerator on it thereafter, before re-installing anything.

    What is the problem with the hard drive is it the files on it trying to boot into windows or is there something wrong with the HDD?

    So for me to fix the problem i should back up all my data and then format the disk using by doing a lo-level-format on the disk and then do a clean install of windows 8 using in installation media that i can boot from my USB. Also will windows be activated when i re-install windows by it reading the OEM Key?

    Hardware failure, most likey - firmware may cause this as well but unlikely in this instance - follow the steps I advised to get clarity.

    Don't worry about activation - to be safe save E:\Windows\System32\config\Software - this is the registry hive that contains your key - worst case scenario we can retrieve the key from from there.
