    hdparm has to do with the power management and speed that the hard drive runs at. It doesn't have to deal with the data itself.

    Try booting through a Live CD and run fdisk:

    I have tried again fdsik from live - it was one of the very first tools I tried.
    Well - I have given up. I assume that I can give it to a professional, however it can be replaced with a couple dozens of bucks so I will do just that. There is no info of any importance on it. I do think it is a hardware error somewhere along sector 0. All my fault fiddling with it to the bitter end. Thanks SCCMAN. It was a pleasure and I have learned about this thing for the first time. Alla prossima
