    I replaced my fujitsu 80GB HDD with fujitsu MHY21 160GB HDD in my hp labtop, but when I try to install WinXP I receive such message"the system can not find any hard disk" .But if I connect the previous 80GB HDD from USB port and try to install WinXP again the system will go to the USB port and recognize this 80GB HDD and ignoring 160GB HDD. By the way, I could install Windows Vista on both, but I need to install Win Xp.

    Regards

It seems that your computer might have a SATA hard drive which could not be detectable by windows xp, try to install vista it will detect it easily.

otherwise use dm (disk manager) for detection and partition.

My Fujitsu mhy2160bh reads read error when booting up and my coputer wont come on it keeps prompting me to ctl-atl-del


Hello

Ok, you might want to have a close listen to hear if the drive makes a clicking sound, if so, then the drive is broken. If the drive does not spin up at all, then it is not receiving any power. This can be a result of either a broken circuit board or a broken drive.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

MHY2160BH Half dead wierd behaviour can't read / access data


If you have opened the hard drive case you quite likely have pooched the drive. This type of work is usually carried out in a proper "clean room" as even very small particles of dust that float around can cause destruction of a hard drive.

That is why they ALL carry a warning about opening them. some even have inert gases instead of air in them as an aid to keeping the inside clean and avoiding airborne corrosion.

Specialists are the only people I know who can dismantle and recover data from the platter but they are not cheap.

You are more than welcome to try yourself but you would need the EXACT control board right down to the revision number to stand even the slightest chance.

My sata hard hard drive is not detected in linux


Check in your BIOS settings that SATA drives can be seen as "ATA"
Install Linux, and then , after everithing went OK, change BIOS to SATA again.

Not Recognized?


Hi,
The device driver is causing a conflict with the system. If you have got any specific cd with hardrive install the driver from the cd. Otherwise , i would suggest try changing he manufacturer of the hdd and get a new one. If you have recently bought it.
Otherwise try creating a new account in windows vista on your computer and then try plugging in the drive

Problem with Hard driver fujitsu mhy2160bh.


You computer need the oem driver for the sata controller to be installed before windows can be installed. It wont find the drive at all with out the driver. You have to use the factory restore disks or have a usb floppy drive and download the driver and put it on a floppy disk and change the bios to work with the floppy. The easiest way is to use the oem software.

How can i installed driver of sata hdd for linux red hat


if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available
ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse ....
you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ...
be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
