Try using a safe boot. When the knoppix menu comes up type: failsafe

If memory serves me correctly there is a list of different modes, otherwise type: /?

Let me know what happens or if you need more help.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

Acer Aspire 4315 when i formatted the it is shown hard disk drivers not detected quit or restated the system.


If you are formatting this model Acer usinf the Windows XP installation CD then Windows cannot detect the hard disk because this Acer uses a SATA hard disk and Windows XP cannot detect a SATA hard disk. The Windows XP installation CD does not include a SATA driver in this CD.
To format and install Windows XP on your Acer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I installed linux ubuntu remix on my ASUS Eee 1001PXB-BK301 multiboot, then i deleted ubuntu after not using it anymore using windows xp disk mangement and found myself without a mbr with grub saying grub...


What you need is SATA controller drivers to be downloaded while starting windows xp disk or ERD Commander.
Since Asus Eee does not have an internal Floppy Disk Drive (FDD), you need to use an external USB FDD.:
Step one: You would like to connect an external USB FDD.
Step two: copy scsi/sata Hardware Access Layer (HAL) Drivers for you laptop to a floppy disk
Step three: during the XP boot process press F6 and follow the prompts to insert a floppy disk with HAL scsi/sata drivers.
Step four: Finish the boot process and run fix MBR.

There is another easy way:
If you can get a Knoppix USB flash drive, you can boot it up from Knoppix and run the following command in the terminal window: sudo ms-sys -m /dev/sda.

Hope This Helps

XP not detecting MY HDD but 7 trail and linux freeware


Method 1 : Go to BIOS and set anything with SATA disable (usually find uns=der advance setting in IDE configuration setting).Save the setting.

Windows Xp will detect your hard drive now.

Method 2 : This days BIOS comes with only few thing to configure.if that's is the case.
Download SATA driver,here is the link

http://download.cnet.com/SATA-Driver-Intel-Ver-7-0-0-1020-zip/3000-2122_4-162224.html

you need one more software called "nlite" in order to integrate the SATA driver in Windows XP CD so that it recognize SATA drives.

Here is the link for nlite download

Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

If i am helpful to you please rate me.
Thank you.

With the computer you wrote to this forum on:

1. Download Knoppix
a. KNOPPIX is a bootable Live system on CD or DVD, consisting of a representative collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. KNOPPIX can be used as a productive Linux system for the desktop, educational CD, rescue system, or adapted and used as a platform for commercial software product demos. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it (over 8GB on the DVD "Maxi" edition).
b. http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-mirrors/download.php?lang=en&link=ftp://mirror.netcologne.de/knoppix
i. Click on agree
ii. Click on knoppix cd
iii. Then click on KNOPPIX_V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-DE.iso
iv. Save
2. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ss/writeisofecddvd.htm <-- is a step by step instruction on how to burn an ISO file.
3. NOW – that you have this CD, start the problem computer up with the CD.
What this does is boot up to the CD as an linux operating system, allowing you to copy all your files to a flash drive or another hard drive.

Then reload your windows operating system.

Do i need to change my harddisk?


Hello,

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.

My dvd rw is not detected


Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.

This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.

If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.

This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.

Sata


You must disable the native mode for the SATA in setup mode.

***NOTE*** be sure that you have all of your drivers for the SATA and all drivers for windows xp before beginning.
