It's been a while, but ISTR that 1702 is an error code that means the
hard drive controller has returned to the bios that something is wrong
with the drive. It wasn't specific as to the error, just that something
in the hard drive subsystem wasn't functioning. Most of the time it
meant that the hard drive itself had failed in my experience.
