You have to remove the DVD and after that you will see the HDD under metal shield held in place with 4 screws labeled M2.5X6. Screw to remove DVD was also labeled (F6).

If you don't know how to do it, i suggest to get on line the service manual for further info.


This will fix your problem.

Booting Notebook using external devices.


This should do it for you.

On the Phoenix BIOS:
Go to "Advanced BIOS Features".
Go to the "1st Boot device" and set it to "USB-ZIP".
(Phoenix BIOS, Revision 6. you need to go to the Boot Order screen and select "Harddisk" and hit enter, giving you a list of IDE hard drives this BIOS prefers to call a USB device an IDE harddrive)
