Need a larger hd on a ctx ezbook 700e and still have win xp home

I have an old ctx ezbook 700e. the software has been upgraded from win 95 to 98 to xp home over the years. I got a 130Gig hd from Best Buy that may be bad. If I send the whole pile to someplace can I end up with XP Home on the new or a larger HD? If the drive i got is bad i can return it. But I need xphome and a lot mor storage space. also installing sp2 is a plus as i need that for AT&T air card. All the software on the old drive works fine, I just don't know how to move the op sys to the larger drive.

You can try using a ghosting software and saving the image on an external drive, but that is complicate.

Better doing a backup of all your files and reinstalling all software after installing windows on new hard drive.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You will need to return the HDD to the place you Bought it from and maybe just take the computer to a shop and have a new HDD put on with a Fresh XP!

Hope this helps --P3NGYJ03

Your bios will not support that size HD.  I dont think that xp sp2 will even know what to do with it.  I would recommend you take it to best buy and see if they would even offer to install it.

Ezbook lost password wont to wipe computer


Why wipe it? As long as the drive isn't encrypted you can just blank out the password. Download and burn Hiren Boot CD to a disc. Put it in this laptop and make sure boot to CD is first in your boot order in BIOS. Then follow the video.

Upgrade NEC Versa VX


You can insert the Windows XP CD while logged on Win 98 and run a test from the CD. Obviously you need a larger Hard Disk and at least 126 MB RAM to bring XP to a usable speed. You can look for RAM upgrade options in this page.

Can ctxezbook run on wireless internet - what do i need


You would need to purchase an adapter that's wifi enabled. Problem is I doubt they'd have drivers available for win95.

Need help upgrading my labtop


You need the windows 98 se installation cd and product key.

Microsoft no longer supports or makes these so your going to have to find one used, from ebay for example:
