Wrong HDD motor is not spepper(even if theoretically there is little diference) 

HDD motor is just sensorless brushless motor, so you can use any suitable controller to drive it.

p.s. if you attempt to make perpetum mobile better drop that idea

The motor in a hdd is a type of stepper motor - it takes a very specific pulsed power to run. There are plenty of simple motors you can build...with instructables already on here.
