Re: medion notebook hardrive

Connect the hard drive and set your BIOS to auto setup and select your old HDD as the initial boot device.When the system boots and the windows loads a new drive will appear on mycomputer. Right click on it and select format.. This will solve the issue...

If you're gonna format it using i.e a Windows XP-CD I guess you'll have to press C? H should be for booting to harddrive.

If have put a 120 gb sata hardrive in and does not pick up factory hardrive is a 40 gb amilopro v2055

Ok you have a cpl choices here. 1st I will tell u the reason it doesnt see the larger drive is because the firmware in the bios is rather old and the 120gb was not thought of then. So u can try and find a firmware version upgrade which I doubt exist and try flashing the bios chip"which I strongly suggest u dont" or go into the administrator tools and format the rest of the drive as mass storage.
