I cloned a 300GB XP boot drive on a 4GB Dell GX280 to a 500GB HD on a 1GB Dell Dimension 5000, but even in Safe Mode, when I try to start up from the 500GB, I get the 0x7b BSOD...


the 7b is a hard drive controller issue the controller on one computer is not the same as the other. maybe try the ultimate boot cd to clear the problem

Data invisible in Maxtor


Do you have Norton (Symantec) Go Back installed? Do you have any child protection software turned on? Either one of these will cause the effects that you're seeing. I have heard where customers have had either Mozy or Carbonite installed and there data was invisible when their drives were slaved to another. If any of these cases exist, those software will have to be uninstalled first and then take a look at the drive.

I believe that my maxtor external hard drive may have gotten password locked, it shows in my hardware properties, but won't reconize in windows.


it could also be a hardware issue.... i make alot of money from recovering data off maxtor drives that are not recognized by the bios or in windows.

Maxtor harddrive jumper setting


If you only have a single hard drive (or multiple hard drives for that matter), you should leave the jumper setting as "Cable Select" or CS.

See if this PDF matches your hard drive:

Maxtor enclosure


With great difficulty , i dont have a step by step guide , but i did the same thing , if you do do this you wont have the external shell anymore i ended up breaking mine to bits , so i suggest dont do this if u still want a external shell.

How to open: get a flat head screw driver and try to pop it open with brute strength careful you don't touch the HDD enclosed inside and to keep the wiring intact. there will be hidden screws inside the case which i ripped off.

Sorry i cant be of further help and Goodluck! :)

HARD DISK CAPACITY PROBLEM


When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

This is not a problem, so dont worry.
