New 160 gig hard drive, can't load XP on Fujitsu S6210

I give up. It’s not the hard drive. It’s something with the machine. The new hard drive is doing the exact same thing. I tried flashing the bios. I tried both hard drives in another machine and they worked fine. I tried starting the setup in another machine and then putting the drive back into your machine to complete it and that fails. For some reason, the machine will not allow me to format the drive. And if I format the drive in another machine, yours won’t recognize it. It still errors out when you try the windows install. 100 ATA 5400 160 GIG

Insert the new hard drive in your laptop, boot up and go into the BIOS.
Check if the hard disk setting is set to Auto (detect). Check the system configuration and see if it detects the hard disk.
If there is a hard disk diagnostic utility within the BIOS, run it to check the hard disk.
You can also test the hard disk by booting up with a boot floppy disk, run fdisk.exe to see if can display, create a partition, and format the hard drive etc.

If not of this works then it is highly possible that you have a faulty disk controller in your laptop.

GATEWAY MP8708 WILL NOT RECOGNIZE HARD DRIVE


This is a little confusing, because BOOTMGR is not part of XP. Vista or better only. Use Win 7 OS disc and choose the Repair option.

On Mon 25-06-2011 I emailed Microsoft a question about re-installing Win XP on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2000 laptop. Yest I had a reply quoting (http://www.fixya.com/support/p340529-fujitsu siemen


the beeps are possibly post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery have dust free secure seatings

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

This is a very old laptop and XP running on this laptop would struggle, especially if this laptop has 256Mb of RAM or less.
You need a later model or new laptop.

Unable to boot - received message "unloadable boot volume" - Fujistsu S6210


The BIOS cannot detect an OS. This can be caused by either a dead hard disk (in that case replace it) or a corrupted OS - try a Repair; if this doesn't work a full install will be mandatory.

I have a panasonic cf-51 with 40-gig drive. I want to upgrade the drive with something at least 160 gig. Do you have any drives available? What spec should I be looking for?


Basically, any EIDE interface hard drive will work, if you buy a new drive, just make sure to use the included software to boot the laptop up with in order to initialize the new disc and make it useable on your system.

How can I upgrade the CPU on fujitsu s6210?


The problem with laptops is that each model is custom made. There is no standard for motherboards in laptops. There is no way to put a new CPU in your laptop as the requirements for each motherboard change with each processor.

Sounds like the new drive is not "Initialized" The drive should have come with software that initializes and formats the new drive. After installing the new drive, boot the computer with the included software disc. Seagate and western digital have software that comes with their drives. If that is not possible, the other way is attach the drive to another computer, access the control panel > Administration tools > computer management > scroll down left pane and select "disc management" > this pane will show all hard drives on your system, including the new one. If the new drive does not show a partition in the right pane, then you have to RIGHT click on the name of the drive, which is the small tan box to the left of where the partition would be and select "Initialize" this is done immediately and is active immediately...no waiting. Disconnect the drive and re-install in the laptop.
