The readme.md page specifically calls out "for expert users". If you don't fall in that category I would recommend visiting your hard drive manufacturer page as they will often have DFT tools that are point and click.

Diskpart is working but when I put list disk it only shows my main hard drive , my main hard drive won't load unless it's on its own I attach the other drive when it shows my title .I would have thought you could find another drive that way .

Just a thought, I am an oldtimer, don' laugh, but has it something to do with master/slave selection of the older IDE disks? They have a jumper to select CS/SLAVE/MASTER/-/PME.
Which disks are you talking about?

When I r/click the drive I get adjust disk layout , clone , wipe data convert to mbr . I can't see inialise disk . It also says suface test, is that a hard drive test ?

Back to the basics.
Test the drive on the computer of a friend, use the same apps for the test, then you know at least whether the drive or your computer is having a problem.

In Windows Sea Tools for Windows it passed all the tests , in cmd it passed . So why won't it load windows with another hard drive connected ?.
