I just reflashed the bios and that didnt fix anything, but I'm pretty sure the hd is just goofed. The hitachi website is releasing a realignment tool in 3 days so I'll try to give that a go and see what happens

it will have a weird laptop connector but just pull it off , or unscrew the caddie

Edit it may have two little screws holding the weird connector on
