So my brand new internal seagate 500gb HD has decided it is going to quit booting up W7 because "the device is busy, a job is pending on /dev/sda2" And was wondering if anyone knows how to cancel this pending job? So w7 can boot up so I can continue on with life.

Can't run in safe mode won't get that far after the the dell BIOS screen everything goes to a black screen with nothing on it until it turns itself off. I can boot it up via other systems such as the ubuntu live cd I'm on now but it won't let me install it to the drive since it still thinks its busy

might be a problem with a partition on your HDD. did your system have a sudden shut down/power cut that would cause a partition to close improperly?...and if so do you have a disk for windows 7?

I had a similar issue where the computer would get past the BIOS screen and then shut down again. My motherboard had gone bad...nothing to do necessarily with the HDD. Try hitting F1 repeatedly at the BIOS screen and see if it will let you into the actual BIOS itself. When there, make sure your boot order is correct. If you can boot from disk, it means that the disk drive and RAM works...you are bypassing the HDD and running the OS off of the storage memory on the disc instead of the actual HDD. Your motherboard might not be totally gone...yet, but if that's the problem, you'll need a new tower soon.

Definite partition problem.

Could be due to hardware problem OR negligence on the user for trying something out silly that has screwed the partition.

You can find a few bootable apps to check partitions in DOS mode on boot. Check them out and see if the partition is repairable.

Boot from a Windows installation disk and enter the recovery options. Enter the command prompt and enter the below command:

chkdsk c: /f
