Question about HP Pavilion Ze4805us Notebook
I used Partition Magic to copy the Boot Magic and C-drive partitions from the OEM 60GB drive to a WD 250GB drive. everything copied w/o errors. I use PM 8.0 and set the C-drive partition on the WD to ACTIVE (it is already a primary partition. Swap the drives (WD is now internal to the laptop) and attempt boot. I get following msgs:
loading BootMagic error#8050 no default menu item available to boot Boot Magic will now boot to your home partition Correct and run Boot Magic config program press any key to continue [Here is where I press the infamous "any" key] then I get: Invalid system disk Replace disk and press any key
If I go into BIOS first (Phoenix KAM1.60) I can see a setting that can't be changed in the hdd section that says max capacity 137GB. Also the LBA mode control is enabled and ULTRA DMA is mode 5. LBA Format total sectors 268435455 multi-sector transfers 16 sectors 32-bit i/o DISABLED Transfer mode FPIO 4 DMA 2 SMART monitoring ENABLED
I would appreciate any help you can offer. I tried hp for another issue a couple of times and now I can't get my 802.11g to work anymore (at least no DHCP, etc.) Thanks. -Kyle
Since your bios says theirs a limit to HDD capacity you may want to try making the 250GB disk into 2 smaller partitions. Then extract your OS image to the first partition.
