Question about Dell Latitude 110L Notebook
Installed new 80GB HDD but, system reports HDD as having >1TB of unpartioned space. System prompts me to either install winXP or partion the drive. I chose to partion the HDD. After doing so, system reports >1TB of partioned space and >1TB of unpartioned space. Knowing this can't be so, I chose to delete both the partioned and unpartioned space. after rebooting PC, system no longer see anything. and generates disk boot error. no recognizable disk is present. So, now I re-install OEM drive which has nothing wrong and worked perfectly before the upgrade. Now, system no longer recognizes this drive either.
What do I do now? Any constructive advise would be much appreciated.
Whenever you switch drives, you must access the BIOS and have it redetect the drive every time. Try the new drive again. Have the BIOS detect it. Use the Windows XP disk and do a full fomat (youll get an option to quick format it, but dont) If the format fails, then the drive is defective.
