Can't repair the hard drive.

#1
I am trying to recover a Windows 7 computer and have gone through the steps of getting the Windows 7 recovery program installed on a boot able flash drive. I am able to boot from the flash drive on the bad computer but I am not able to repair the hard disk. From the flash drive I am able to select the 'Automated Repair' but the hard drive is not listed. When I try steps two and three I just get the error command failed (or something like that) any suggestions on what to do next? Or has the hard drive just died?

Thanks for any guidance in advance.
