How can I install Philips HDD SDE3273FC on MacBook OS X? When I attach it, it shows up on the desktop but cannot be modified. It says read only. There is a folder on the disk called 'System Volume Information'. Inside is a file called 'MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase' which I cannot open.

Check your harddisk boot priority in bios if u have more than 1 hdd and make sure the hdd with os given the first priority..... If this is correct then ur Hdd is crashed or your os is corrupted... If ur hdd is showing up in bios then reinstall or repair ur os.....
If there is no HDD or any other boot device the BIOS will always be present. This problem occurs if you haven't installed any Operating System on the HDD. So when the computer is booting it finds no booting device files and that's why showing error message. Format your HDD and install OS to boot smoothly. But if you have HDD with OS still this error happening then it might be a reason of corrupt system files which are required during booting or it may be the case that your HDD is damaged and cannot boot from there. If your HDD is damaged and still showing on the BIOS it may happen because it is detecting as a device but the as the device is damaged is cannot boot from it. Check these steps to solve your issue.
you cannot install an operating system on an hdd on one system and just plug it in to another computer, as windows installs itself according to the specs of the machine you install it to. Have you tried plugging it in to a the second IDE slot? also check your jumper make sure that it is set to master
This the normal way since you have converted your PC to dual boot, so everytime it starts it will ask which OS you want to use. It does not make any difference if the other OS is on a different partion, BUTS ITS ON THE SAME HDD.......sodeep
It is on your os problem. Insert your OS installer. You don't have to install a fresh copy but you can repair your previous OS installation. Make sure you have set your boot sequence to CD, floppy and last HDD. You can now reinstall your drivers after doing that.
Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.
HDD IDE/EIDE or SATA/SATA II OS XP or Vista
After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.
