Philips HDD SDE3273FC won't work on MacBook OS X

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.

When I attach a next hard disk drive it doesnot work


You need to be running Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

You will need at least 1GB of RAM and a USB port.

Your computer looks to be very slow. I think this is the reason why it does not work.

You need an OS/ Operating System. Windows etc...

Take care!

When compuetr starts no boot device available but BIOS seen


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.

I cant install any operating system in a desktop Gateway


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

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.
