Dell Lattude D800 HDD change - doesn't boot

I changed my Seagate 40GB hard drive for a new 160GB WD Scorpio. The Seagate was copied using ghost, but xp didn't start from the new hdd. I got some error message. The bios version is A13, the latest one.
What's the max supported hdd size of this notebook/i855PM chipset?

I suppose it can support upto 100GB , just get the BIOS updated to the latest release and check in the setup if the disk is accepted .

I want to put a new HDD into my C-610, Is there a limit on the size i can install?


These were sold with HDD's up to 40GB at the time, and the C610 Latitudes use good old 2.5" 9mm height ATA / IDE drives. Largest ones I've heard of is 2.5TB - although I've never seen one in person, nor have I ever seen any 1GB's. 100GB/120GB/160GB are the best deals out there now: you can still get them new, and the prices are fairly reasonable (around 50c per gig, give or take).

You can follow the steps listed in Dell's service manual for this model here:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latc610/sm_en/

Just click on the hard drive line - it's pretty simple and straightforward.

I want to change the HD from 40Gb to one with more capacity but I tried to make a ghost image in a 120GB and 160GB HD but the bios don't recognize it and only can see in the screen a simbol _ flashing.


Not sure which software you are using for making the ghost image. Lets say its "Acronis".
First, you will need an USB hard disk drive to store the image on.
Next, run the boot cd and choose backup.
Send it to the hdd.
If it was successful, remove / replace your hdd.
Run the boot cd again but now choose "Restore". Locate your image and then wait.

Hope this helps you. Norton Ghost is a bit different.

Lenovo 3000 N200 Not recognize my WD Scorpio 160Gb HDD sata


When a hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS then it indicates a hardware malfunctioning. In this case, service is required.

WD 500 GB resized by Norton Ghost Restore to 120 GB and can not get it to original size.


You should partition your new drive first to say 160Gb (you lose a bit after formatting) for 1st partition and the remaining capacity for the 2nd partition. Because your Ghost image is 120Gb it can only restore to a partition of 120Gb, that is why it shows 120Gb on a 500Gb on a single partition.
You may be able to fix this problem without starting again by using Disk Manager (from Control Panel - Admoinistrative Tools) to create a 2nd partition on the hard drive and format this partition.

Selecting a replacement hard drive for Dell Inspiron 8500


pull out the hard drive and look on it see if it's an ATA or SATA
the brand does not matter, just the connection type I stated.

best place is here


Also, go to DELL.COM and support, type in your tag# and look for your system specs, it will tell you there what kind ok HD it has BUT best way is to pull HD out and look at the label.


this is a very simple job to do. just take your time.
