At this moment I have taken the HDD out of the case, bought an adapter for its 1.8" interfce and proceeded over the USB. I was, however, installing Linux, with practically no experience with Windows.

I replaced my Win XP original software with another one.
I copied the new XP OS which was on a CD to a 1GB SD card from a digital camera.
Then I used this SD card to load the new XP soft.
I have also an external CD-ROM reader using this one I loaded Ubuntu from a standard Linux CD.
All these setting have ran for about 11 month, now I've got a funny fault on power up, its power indicator goes on green color for about 2 secs after goes to orange and nothing else is done, blank screen...
I have removed all devices but mobo and lcd, no way!!!
Regards.

Xp can only "See" a hard drive up to about 128GB, if its bigger than that, XP won't install.

Make sure your drive is properly connected, and jumper in the right place (1 drive, set to master)
If it used to work before your problem, should be ok.

Then boot from your windows disk. If your bios is set to boot from the hard drive, if there's no operating system on your hard drive it can't boot.

If its set to boot from the hard drive first, it may, after a few seconds revert to booting from the disk drive. If not, while booting watch the screen, at the bottom it you should see "Press F2 for setup or F10 for boot options" or something similar. To temporarily change the settings, choose the boot options menu and select "Boot from CD". Restart and you should be on your way.

If that doesn't work, you may need a new hard drive.

Tried the same thing and got the same result using the motion computing DVD/CD external reader/burner.

Has anyone found an answer to this problem of trying to switch to a larger hard drive on the 1600 with format/installing? The new hard drive was not able to read the recovery disk with OS on it.
Thanks.

Window cd delete only some file. i want to format hole harddisk.


what it sounds like to me is, you ran the windows cd and installed it over what was already there with out formatting the drive or partition first.

to start with a clean copy, you have to format the drive, but youll have to delete the existing partition 1st...if your not sure how to do that, just post back and let me know what OS your trying to install.

HOW TO INSTALL WINDONS XP PRO ON TOUGHBOOK CF-18


XP can not be installed from usb as the bios does not enable it. Plug the ide hard drive into an older desktop system and install from boot on cd. Once all files are copied over then you need to copy the i386 folder over from the cd. Reinstall the hard drive into the toughbook and carry on the install from there.

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual

Unable to get pass login window


External HDs are not usually recognised on boot, however some external CD drives are.. although most of these type of devices have a built in recovery partition, which should allow you to restore this tablet back to factory without having to resort to loading from external devices. try pressing f10 or f11 on boot or look for other messages on bootup to press a key combination if all else fails try looking for instructions on factory reset from the manufacturers website
