missed moon and gparted

The pre-dawn featured a blood moon and a complete lunar eclipse. I woke at 2 a.m. to check on the disk diagnostic program I ran on my computer. The disk diagnostic program told me that my hard drive tested okay. Still, I found myself unable to boot into my operating system, and unable to load a new operating system because the system pronounced my hard drive unavailable. I forgot to look for the moon. I wrote an e-mail to my computer's maker asking for suggestions.

This morning I woke with a fresh attitude. I loaded GParted Live, the operating system which is designed for formatting and perhaps fixing hard drives. It loaded fro a USB after a few moments. Then I reformatted the hard drive anew. Now Peppermint OS pronounced the hard drive available, and is installing now. Let's see if it works.
