Assuming the drive you want to diagnose is the Maxtor in your sig! Maxtor do Powermax for diagnosing their hard disks. This will extract itself to a floppy disk, which will be used to boot the system from.

Almost all hard drive makers have proprietary diagnostic programs for their drives. They are well worth looking for.
