You plugged an additional SATA harddrive into the motherboard.
(Via a SATA data cable)

THEN you removed the original harddrive?

SOURCE: HP Media Centre PC 7250 can I add a hard drive?

Here's a step by step guide for that HP 7250 model on HP's website about how to replace, or remove/add the Primary and Secondary Hard Drives (which pictures that help).

If your computer did not come with a second hard drive, you can install a second hard drive that you attach to the bottom of the inside of the computer tower.

SOURCE: computer doesn't see new secondary hard drive

There is no option in the bios to enable sata. It appears that the sata ports are just for decoration (hence hp using IDE)

Hi. I believe there's an ATA-to-SATA converter/adapter/dongle available. Try checking with bestbuys' and hope you find one.

It should look something like this:

Hi i bought WD 320 gb sata /8mb hard drive - the cable ribbon on my dell 4600 does not plug into it! do i need a different cable yes


Hi,
Generally speaking, we have two types of hard disk interface. IDE (the old one with ribbon cable) and SATA (with a 1cm strip like cable).
As your new hard disk is SATA, you need a SATA cable to connect it to you PC.
Below are a few images which would help you.

My fujitsu laptop recently had a new hard drive installed in it ,but i want to transfer the data i have on the old hard drive that was removed from laptop to my new hard drive. I bought the all in one...


The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

HOW upgrade the system and what can we upgrade?


Contact HP regarding a lease program. They will provide all new systems to your company, send technicians like myself to transfer all the data from the old machines to the new machiness, set them up inside your company, and pay you for your old hardware.
