    Not able to run Seatools for Windows

    I have downloaded and used CrystalDiskInfo. It gave a caution for the disk:
  2. I have a Seagate 3TB (ST3000DM001) that I have had some trouble with. Seatools for DOS (the only versions I have managed to run) claims that it is OK, but according to HD Tune it has 57848 retired sectors. I'm not able to run Seatools for Windows. The disk controller is set to AHCI in BIOS. I have read that the disk shouldn't be in AHCI, but when I change that I'm not able to boot. The disk is still under warranty and I would like to return it, but I'm not sure that the shop will take it back as long as Seatools claims that it is OK. Does anyone have any advice?

    I can't see that it says anything about retired sector. It says that SMART is supported and enabled, SMART has not been tripped, and that the tests (both short and long) has been passed. It doesn't really say anything about the health of the drive, and I can't see where I should be able to find that data.
