I'm sorry. I misled you.

- Download ES-Tool for FDD (Direct Link)
- Download ES-Tool Bootable CD ISO (Direct Link)

First download - you need to copy ESTOOL.EXE file to a floppy, and boot from it.
Second download - in case, you don't have floppy drive, you can create bootable CD

Yes.
ESTOOL.EXE file goes to floppy, and you boot from it, then.
If you want to make bootable CD, you need to use 2nd download, which comes in .iso format, and you have to burn that .iso file to a CD, using ImgBurn to make it bootable.
Which way, you want to go?

OK. Click on 2nd download.
You'll download estool_CDROM.zip
Unzip it.
Inside, you'll find Image.iso file.
Download ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/, and burn Image.iso file to a CD, using ImgBurn.
Put the CD into CD drive, and restart computer.
Watch for this message:
Press any key to boot from CD
Press some key, and the test CD should start to run.

I cannot get the disk to boot at all, it does nothing. I see the files are unzipped, maybe I am not using the img burn correctly. It comes up and ask 6 different things, Do I want to copy image file to CD etc, I am not sure I am using the right one.

You select "Write image file to disc".

Do you see:
Press any key to boot from CD
when you restart computer with the CD in?

OK. You need to access BIOS, and make sure, CD drive is listed first in "boot order".

2: Sata Hard DRive
3: IDE Hard Drive - Not Present

It depends on BIOS type. There should be instructions in right hand pane. It could be "+"/"-" keys, or arrow keys to move selected item up, and down.
Make sure, CD ROM is listed first.

Sorry, I figured it out, I ran the Dis--- Test Loop Number : 1 / 1 ---------- it passed said HDD has no error. There were a lot of things I did not run such as AAM Mode LBA Mode - Enable Smart- Dco set Max address, etc.. Is this correct or should I run them also.. When I hit ESC, it sent me back to DOS, I tried "Exit" it would not let me out, Run was the only command it responded to. I still do not know how I closed out and loaded back to windows.
