Hello,

Try replacing the HDD cable & check jumpers on HDD on right mode (Primary/secondary/cable-select.

If above is ok. Go to your bios setup & check whether it is detected there. try loading Bios defaults.

Hope above helps.

Telikin bios


They run on Linux. There is a BIOS, but I don't know if it's locked out though.
The Telikin Freedom looks like a full laptop
  • Intel Quad Core 1.83GHz Processor
  • 4GB SDRAM
  • 500GB hard drive
It should run any modern windows.

The other ones listed are very low specs.
Telikin Breeze
  • Intel dual core 1.8GHz processor
  • 2GB SDRAM
  • 16GB solid state drive
Telikin Silver
  • Intel J1900 Celeron Quad Core processor, 2.4GHz
  • 2GB DDR3 Memory
  • 32GB Solid State drive
Unless you can find a way to upgrade the SSD,
Windows 7 fills up 30GB by itself, 8/8.1/10 are also out of the question. None of these work well with only 2GB memory either.
You might be able to run Windows XP on the 32GB Silver.

Windows 8 If you want to run Windows 8 on your PC, here's what it takes:

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Bigger hard drive


I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.
