Try WinXP SP3(bootable disk)
or else enter BIOS, make sure your sata controller is set to ATA, not AHCI. Otherwise the computer wont see the drive when trying to install XP in some cases

Gooday Toshiba Experts, My 30MB hard drive HDD2181, has apparently a lot of bad sectors. I am able to format it with a recovery CD. Recovery process is aborted repeatedly. The laptop is Satellite...


With so many bad sectors preventing a format, I would recommend the purchase of a new hard drive. You will most likely need to buy an IDE 2.5" hard drive for your laptop. However, you should double check the manual to see if it uses IDE or SATA. You can get whatever size hard drive you want for it.
I wouldn't recommend any manufacturer over the others, they're all quite similar, almost some people have their own personal preferences. Just look for the correct drive type, space you want, at the price you want. Don't focus too much on the manufacture.
The new drive can be formatted with a recovery CD, however it would be easier to format with the Windows CD when you reinstall the operating system.

So you have a potential problem with the hard drive and a known problem with the optical drive. Replace the optical drive first: it's easy (one screw at the bottom, another one underneath the keyboard - these are the only 2 screws holding the optical drive in). You can buy a replacement drive, new or used, on eBay for $10 - $20 delivered. After that, you should be able to figure out if the hard drive's problems are OS related or HW failure. HDD's are cheap, too. This model uses 2.5" ATA IDE drive (30 or 40G or you can go larger), figure 50 cents to 75 cents per gigabyte, and you'll be okay. Just don't pay tourist prices for these things....

How can I connect my hard drive of my toshiba a15-s127 which wont power-up because of a corrupt/missing file, to my second computer to back it up ... and will it transfer any bugs that could be on that old...


You must remove the hard drive and get an external enclosure for it. Best Buy or Microcenter will be able to help you with finding the correct enclosure (You will want a 2.5" enclosure in either IDE or SATA. The hard drive will have the type printed on it to help you decide).

This can then be plugged into your new computer to transfer data. Bugs won't be transferred, but viruses could be if they infected your personal documents, but your virus scanner should be able to catch that.

Hard drive crashed


Nope, it's just a matter of pulling the old hard drive and putting in the new one. Sometimes there will be an adapter attached to your old drive that you'll have to transfer over to the new one. What you need is a 2.5" mobile PATA (IDE) drive.
