    Sorry I maybe should of mention I am talking about a laptop, I can't actually pull the HDD out. Also the Toshiba utility doesn't come as an ISO file >.< So i can't burn the image to be boot-able is there something I missing ?

    Use the Seagate tool.

    SeaTools for DOS | Seagate

    Step 2
    Burn the .ISO file to a CD. View Knowledge Base article 201431 for instructions on how to do this.

    The SeaTools wouldn't boot in UEFI mode however it will boot in the other mode CSM I think it was. When I run SeaTools though it can't find any Hard Drives. Does this mean that it just can't find it in that boot mode or that my hard drive has been physically disconnected somehow ?

    Remove the HDD, than refit, & retest.

    Won't that effect my warranty if I open up the laptop? This computer is like a month old, would it be better to just send it back for warranty repairs ?

    Using the warranty for repairs, is always a good idea.

    I had a problem like this with a new ASUS laptop, when I tried to change the boot order in the BIOS. It had "Boot Profiles", one had the HD as first, the other had Optical Drive as first, so I set that one as default. Then, if I did not have a disk in the drive, it would not boot at all. So I put it back to original profile and just used the F2 key to choose boot device.
