    Put harddrive in HP Pavilion Elite M9150f Desktop PC. Turn on computer, go to BIOS Setup. Go to Boot Options. Make sure CDROM is set as the first boot device. (Top device in list) Be SURE to Save Changes. Put Restoration Disk in optical drive to use the same Operating System, or put Windows version full installation disk, in optical drive. You want Full Installation. (Destructive Installation) When finished, and you have a second harddrive too, connect it AFTER Windows has been installed on the SATA harddrive you are installing now. DO NOT forget about Anti-Static Precautions!

If you don't have multiple drives, the fastest way is to reinstall the OS. It will format the disc as part of the clean installation.

Yes you can, for hard drives larger than 2TB you will need a 64 bit operational system like Windows 7, XP recognizes hard drives up to 2TB.

I can't reformat my hp compaq nc6000 i can't see any driver how can i reformat?


If you reformat it ALL will be lost on the hard drive if that is what you reformat. Then you will have to do a cold start using the Windows installation disks from scratch. This is a LAST ditch thing to do.

To reformat the hard drive completely you will have to use the utilities on your Windows installation disks which you may or may not have. Make sure you have your serial number and the necessary stuff to re-activate Windows and ALL other software disks for all the programs you have been using. Also any data you have such as photos, etc must all be saved on other medi that you can reload after reformatting and reinstalling Windows...

I think it is UNLIKELY you REALLY want to reformat the hard drive in your machine... It may take you days of work and frustration to complelwtely restore the machine after a reeformat of the hard drive.

F7 hard drive problem the PC has two 360 gig hard drives. Which one is the primary? Will a WD serial # WCAV 5463220018 3.5 inch SATA hard drive 1000 Gbyte be compatible with my PC?


If your PC has SATA connections yes you can use SATA, but not a SATA 2.5 which only fits a laptop! When you use 2 drives one must be set by jumpers on rear of drive to master..... the slave drive (2nd hard drive) must also be set to slave by same jumpers.

My HP Pavillion Elite m9150f desktop (Vista Home


Hi,

You have nothing to worry about as this is normal operations. All the computer is doing is checking drives and reading any disks that maybe in the drive.
If there is no disk in the drive the LED indicator light will still come on but should resume Windows quicker.


Regards.

I have an HP Pavilion Elite m9150f desktop PC. I'm getting ''Boot Path error code BIOHD-5 Failed''.


Could be one of two things: either the BIOS has lost the settings for the hard drive, which is uncommon unless the PC is more than 5 years old or been electrically shocked, or the hard drive is going bad. hard drives usually only last about 3-5 years on average. Western Digital even less.
