    On this website I found a listing for the computer that listed the components. The primary drive is SATA so I'm pretty sure it'll take SATA for a number 2. thanks again.

We cloned an older 58GB drive to a WD2500BEVT 250GB drive (using Acronis True Image 2011). The WD 250GB drive is now reporting as 58GB to BIOS. I've 0-filled it with different utilities. no...


Good day!!..As far us i know that cloning or ghosting should be the same specs of hard disk..Since you want to cloned the 58gb,so you should be use 58gb also and not 250 gb,thats why bios detecting some different utilities..ok thanks..

I want install a bigger internal hard drive,whats in it now is a 160 gb ide ultra ata..wshat are my options?


There are a few options. The easiest option is to put in another IDE drive of your choice, along with your existing drive. That way you don't have to re-install or clone your operating system on or to the new drive.

I couldn't tell for sure from reading the info provided by HP whether your motherboard has SATA ports or not. Probably not, due to the age of the computer. Not to worry, if you want to use a SATA drive, just pick up an adapter, such as this:

Changing hard drive


For some strange reason the HP website does not allude to which drive came with your machine. I would assume that information is in your original shipping manifest, but the site does offer a video or instructions on how to change your hard drive, just remember you will have to "clone" your old drive to the new one so all your features will be enabled in your system.

Take a look at this:

SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED


Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..

Upgrade Possible?


Hey Al,
The internal Drive is a standard 3.5 inch IDE 7200RPM unit. you can indeed upgrade this to a 1TB drive as long as it's IDE wether 2.5 or 3.5. Luckily when Lacie was originally offering these drives you could get these in 1TB, so that won't be an issue.
