Question about Fujitsu S6210 Notebook
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.
