i just bought 3 hdd HITACHI Desktar 7K1000.B 750 Gb - SATA II - 7200t - 8 Mb cache.
the bios detect it fine but when trying to format it to install an OS it makes a bad noise (tik....tikk tikk ...tiikkk tikk...tikktikk) and the formatting bar don't move as if it's not formatting i waited 30min but the bar didn't move so i removed it (i assume it doesn't work)

but i'm not sure maybe i did something wrong cauz the 3 of them did the exact same thing
is it possible that it can be working even with the sound and the formatting bar doesn't show up progressing ?

Try to run a SMART analysis on it from a working PC if possible. It doesn't sound good to me though, it might be a mechanical failure, but don't quote me on it.
