Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
Due to hard disk failure, I just replace my Thinkpad T42`s hard disk (40GB) with my T23 hard disk(120GB) which was recently upgraded and working perfectly fine . But T42 not recognize the new hard disk. When I took out and install back to T23 its working great.. Old HD and new HD has same size, same rpm only difference is capacity .So what would be the problem any idea?
Thanks in advance
It seems the hard disk size will max out at 80GB with a 5,400 RPM speed according to IBM.
Im sorry to say that this means that it will not support a 120Gb hard drive.

The IBM T42 can take EIDE HD of 120GB (and smaller). The max is 120G, not 80GB.
