You have mistyped exe name.
First you typed just typed hddhack
In second try you forgot to type r after hddhack and space between hddhack -r
But it will not work from windows - Command line in windows NOT DOS (If you are not using Win 98 or lower).
You need to use DOS bootable flash drive, or something similar....
I don´t think if it is good idea to mod your hdd if you are not able even use command line.
You can totally mess it if you will use it wrong.
Find some tutorial, it may help you
