Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
I want to replace the Hard drive, but the PC does nort "see" the new one.
I have looked in Bios and cannot see any entries for the HDD.
Does this mean the Bios may be locked?
Do I have to use an identical replacement to the original?
If the hard drive has not been formatted you will need to boot to the operating system cd. Each hard drive manufacturer has their own drive manager program which you can download and burn to cd on another computer as well. You do not need to have the same brand as the original. If you have any trouble with the formatting please tell me and I will help you. Steve Medley
