In this situation I recommend you to try removing and reseating the DVD Drive of the Notebook manually. Get the Manual of the Notebook which can give you the instructions to remove and reseat the DVD Drive in the Notebook.

If the DVD Drive is not detected even after reseating, it may be faulty and needs to be replaced.

Cannot install whs on ssd using flash drive


I would suggest cloning the OS install.
Install the OS on the 80GB SSD with the Foxconn board that is giving you troubles with the 40GB SSD. Then clone the drives and swap SSDs.
WHS 2011 probably will throw up a flag stating that it needs to be reactivated because of hardware changes, but it should go smoothly.

did you get all the files? most likely there is a corrupt or missing set of files in the cloned files
i suggest you either get a new hard copy (disks) and install from there or use linux (most linux OS's are free online)

How to upgrade hard drive


Replacing the HD is pretty easy depending on the make & Model. Look at your owners manual or go to the manufactures web site and get one. It should tell you how.

The difficult part is saving your programs and data since you will loose them. A local shop can remove the disk, clone it onto a new disk and insert it back into your laptop. They shouldn't charge more than $100 plus the cost of a new disk.

I can not seem to copy dvds onto my hard drive to


extremely difficult because of copy write protection. Requires special software and not all of it works all the time. Look for software on the internet. You will find some free programs to try. The illegal guys have made it hard for those who buy legitimate and just want to copy their own stuff.

Im trying to upgrade my hard drive from a 40g to a 160 but it only shows up as 40gb


You probably used software to "clone" the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive. So, the "new" drive is an *EXACT* image of the 40GB drive.

Click Start
Point to My Computer
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button.
Click Manage
Double-click Storage
Double-click Disk Management (local)
You'll see that the "last" 120GB on the new disk are "unallocated".

Use that "disk-cloning" software to "resize" the 40GB partition on the new disk-drive, to integrate that "unallocated" space into the current partition.

Or, right-mouse click on that "unallocated" space, and create a partition within that space, and to "format" that space, and to assign a drive-letter (E: ? F: ?) to that 120GB of disk-space.

Older motherboards like the one in your laptop may have a size limit on the hard drive. Maybe there is a bios update for the laptop to fix this issue. you will find that at the manufacturers website under downloads/support.

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Seagate momentus 3 60gb problem


What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.
