No software can repair a damaged HDD, it needs to be physically replaced, excuse the tutorial title  How to Install an Internal Hard Drive on Your Computer here

Tough call, Windows will only install on a clean/good area of a HDD however keep in mind that it will also ignore bad areas of a HDD.

Just to back up what Phill has said, please bare in mind, that a previous disk check found bad sectors and did what it could to repair the data on them. The fact that it couldn't means the sectors or area's of the hard drives disks are damaged physically. Even though the hard drive has run up with a new installation of Windows, does not mean it will keep running OK. Whatever it is that caused the damage will continue to do so and you will be back to where you were earlier. I do suggest buying a new hard drive as a just in case and be ready to swap it over for the possibly damaged one. You can clone the system on to the new hard drive so it is then ready to put in as and when the original one does fully lie on its back with its feet in the air.

 

Edit to add, if you wish to know more about cloning a system to a new and fresh hard drive, please ask.

 

Nev.
