Question about IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook
my HD 40 GB on ibm r50e was dead yesterday. i bought new H.D (WD 160GB scorpio). but when i'm trying to install Xp on this laptop. there is a message appear told me there is no hard drive install. the HD is new & checked by usb adapter & also formated. the laptop is not recognize the HD (i also checked it with one more HD 20 GB).
i try to change some elements on bios but it doesn't matter
please i don't know what 2 do.
thanX for your help!
I've been wrestling with tw IBM's with similar issues for the last three days, one of which wouldn't recognize the hard drive or the CD drive. I'm going to suggest flashing the bios, this worked on the ones I have. Here's a link to the bios download. I recommend that you use the one for creating a diskette. Try this and let me know.
