Hard Drive Failure Report

HP Notebook - 15-ay009dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My laptop reports that the "boot device failed" on startup. I am able to run a diagnostic which gives the following error code: 94PC0C-8GX9QQ-XD7X7A-60QM03. 

I know the drive is failing and needs to be replaced. I am only interested in recovering the data. Any ideas as to how I can start the machine and begin to recover data?

 

**Please do not respond with a suggestion to take it to a store so that they can recover the data. 

 

Thanks in Advance 🙂

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, you are not going to be able to start the PC and recover the data.

 

Your chances of recovering the data with the Hard Disk 1 Quick Test Failure error report are slim and none.

 

Your only option to try and recover the data yourself, would be to remove the hard drive, purchase a sata to usb adapter, plug it into a working PC, and see if you can read and copy the data from the hard drive to the working PC.

 

You need a device like this...
