Question about Avanquest DISK COPY & CLEAN (WIN 98,ME,2000,XP,VISTA) for PC (1391)

1 Answer

Disk boot failure

I copied my 60 gig hardrive to my new 500 gig and everything worked out perfect. I unpluged my old hardrive and changed my new hardrive to the SATA 1. Well when I booted it up it gave me this message:
'DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER'

So I have to boot my machine up with the XP disk in. You have a quick solution?

Hi,

Technically you can copy all the data from one to another hdd but not the operating system

You have to install your operating system (windows, linux or MAC) on your new 500gig hdd and then copy your data from 60gig hdd.

Regards

Changed hardrive now says no bootable device insert boot disk. dont have boot disk


Turn on the PC.

Supply the CD-ROM / DVD holding your preferred operating system - Windows, Linux, etc., into the CD / DVD tray and close the tray.

Wait up to 30 seconds for the CD / DVD drive to stop spinning

Turn the PC off.

Wait 15 seconds.

Turn the PC on.

Let the PC boot from the CD-ROM automatically / instruct the PC to boot from the disk in the CD / DVD drive.

Supply information as prompted.


If you do not have a CDROM/DVD, you will need to contact the PC manufacturer to obtain a start up disc & driver disk as needed. Explain to the support person that the old drive failed and a new one has been installed. No disk images were retrievable from the old hard drive. This should tell the person that you need everything to get this machine working as factory fresh once again.

You could purchase / download a different Operating System too - but this will likely cost much more than obtaining disks from the PC manufacturer.

Good luck!

I'd like you to get into your bios. At the main bios window make sure your bios is seeing the hard drive correctly (model number). Also check that your cdrom is listed. While in the Bios go to boot & correct the boot order. 1st should be cdrom, 2nd should be your new Hitachi.
You mentioned you connected it to a PC. Than you installed WinXP & everything went fine. Disk read error means your laptop does not like the FAT. When you bought the Hitachi did you get a disk utility? If not download it from the link provided here & test your drive. Use the disk utility to set up your new drive & format
it with the utility. Try again to boot to your cdrom & install WinXP. If your XP does not include SP1 or SP2 your drive may show a smaller size.

Good luck, I hope the disk utility fixs the problem.

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Installing an old hardrive to a new computer


depending on the BIOS type, there must be a method to disable IDE-0 from booting. If no method found, try booting from floppy disc and then run setup.exe from CD. Try to find this in the BIOS settings, then enable it again after you have fixed the Windows.

Consistent hard Drive BOOT ERROR after an upgrade to MSNV-939 motherboard


You can run a disk manager for your drive however, I'll bet you will find its windows boot.ini. It may read just fine for a dual boot system but think about this. Windows can get confused real quick. I'm talking about the regestry. Take the time and do a fresh install of your Linuex and than re-install windows "clean install". I'll bet everything works out just fine. When 1 changes MB's there is a whole list of new drivers PCI devices loading into windows. Your system will run better with one copy of drivers for your new board and windows will not carry a list of old drivers and PCI devices of your old board.
