Your PC will be set to boot from USB first. Go into the BIOS and set the PC to boot from hard disk first. Respond here if you need to know how to do this.

    Hi, when you first boot, you will get an option to enter the bios by either pressing F2, F10 or Esc depending on your PC.

    What you see next will be very PC specific but look for something along the lines of boot order or primary boot device and set it to the internal hard disk first. Good luck.

External hard drive won't show files


If it behaves like this for multiple computers with multiple operating systems, I would think that the problem is with the hard drive or with how the files were stored. I would recommend trying a free recovery utility:

If this does not work, there are professionals who can do this service for you however it is generally expensive.
As a last ditch effort, boot your computer from a free Ubuntu CD (http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download) and see if it recognizes your files.

I have a buffalo external drive. The last time it works is on my auntie's mac laptop, message prompt that i have to reformat the disk. It made me think that files are corrupted. I remove it hoping that...


If the Buffalo had been formatted on a MAC their file format is HPFS and is not compatible with Windows. To be able to exchange data between the Mac and Windows the Buffalo external drive needs to be formatted on Windows XP in FAT 32 (not NTFS). Then the Mac can read and write data on this external drive as well as Windows XP.

My XP will not boot when my Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 drive is connected. It gets as far as showing the Pentium screen and stalls.


Its probably trying to boot from your external drive.

Go into your bios and reset your boot setting to HDD0 as your first boot device, Disk drive 0 second and floppy third, unless you want to boot from an external drive. That being the case select an appropriate order.

If the bios shows your external HDD as HDD0, then you have to work out which is the drive carrying the operating system and set that to your first boot device.

To get into the bios, watch the boot screen for a key to hit to enter setup, normally its the "DEL" key.

Windows Server trying to boot from external hard drive


go into your 'update settings'. there is a section of where it asks you about how you want your settings set and where to send updates to. You may find the problem here. Check all the 'advanced' settings as well. If your Western digital is plugged in via USB and not requiring updates, unplug it while starting your system, after complete start up, reinsert the USB plug. It may show new devise found, then from here, you may be asked to reinstall it to stop the rebooting.

1 TB is beeping


After doing some research it seems the beeping means that there is a disk failure.

Prop off the front of the unit, remove the drive and replace it. The unit will automatically rebuild the drive, which takes about 8 hours
