    Trying to analyze broken HDD - how to start?

    Try using S.M.A.R.T. See the link below:- I'm with Tolkem. If it doesn't show in the BIOS it's probably a sure bet it's dead as a door nail. http://smartlinux.sourceforge.net/

    HELP ME PLEASE!!!

    If you're new to Linux I don't recommend Slackware or Arch. Without reading all of the documentation on how to run those distros it could be very hard to understand.

    Lubuntu will work yes. Download Lubuntu and try it Live on your machine and see how it runs before you install it. https://lubuntu.net/downloads/ Is your machine a 32-bit or a 64-bit machine?

    Slow boot time for linux distros across the board. (3-5 minutes)

    Yup, it's a Asus Tuf Gaming mobo:- I just built this rig about 6 months ago so I don't think I can revert the BIOS back. This Asus mobo was just made in September.
