you mean you swap hard drive from different computer, it all boils down to driver incompatibility since OS was installed in different system. go to (Windows button+R) then type devmgmt.msc try to look for highlighted part then update the driver

[ want to upgrade the hard drive on my Compal 30F3 99.90 motherboard


If you mean to replace the existing drive with one of larger capacity, you can "Clone" the original drive to the new one using "Clonezilla" just run the disc from switch off and follow the instructions. Or you will need a copy of your operating system disc and make sure you have a readable COA (microsoft license label) and then fit the new drive and do a new installation of the operating system. It isn't difficult as the installation tells you what to do as it runs.

Operating system not found


No, you won't get the OS to automatically install on the new drive. The OS is not stored in the BIOS chip (or a similar permanent location inside the computer). You will need an OS install disc (not an upgrade disc). Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic was the original OS on most of the Acer Aspire 4530 series. Acer appears to have drivers for the system for XP through Windows 7 to get the hardware to work. You will need to have these most of these ready before you install your OS. Put them on a flash drive or optical disc using another computer.

This computer may work with Unix as well. However, driver issues may be a factor. You can try most versions of Unix from a CD (LiveCD) to test it out.

When you get a new hard drive, install it into the laptop. Then put the OS disk in the optical drive bay. Boot to the optical drive. Follow the directions for formatting the hard drive and installing the OS. (Of course you will need a drive that doesn't have a higher capacity than the BIOS supports.) The motherboard needs to recognize the drive.

If you find a member of a Windows User Group, they may have Windows install discs available. The license number on the label of your computer will probably work as your license key. (The key for a computer like this is locked to the CPU and motherboard; unless someone upgraded the OS to Windows 7 or downgraded to XP, this should be the key you need.) Use the information on the label to obtain the correct version of Vista (the Basic install disc may not work for installing Home Premium). You also need to match the 32-bit or 64-bit install disc (and the service pack you need).

I hope this helps.

(An Acer recovery disc wouldn't help you. Most of those are completely locked to the original hardware (including hard drive) and look for the recovery partition that was on that hard drive.)

How to install os in usb hard disk


First plug your external hard drive "disk" into your computer using your USB cable. Then insert your CD/DVD in your CD/DVD Drive "D, or E, or F" that are define in your system and turn off your computer and On your System "computer". Then boot form the installation disk. Begin the installation so that the hard drive will install the operating system. Then accept the license terms and conditions. Then choose your destination drive."By default, the C: will represent your main hard drive and the D: will usually represent your CD/DVD drive. So your external hard drive will be the E: or F: drive. "And you will now able to run that operating system."
N.B: "You will be able to run your external hard drive as a fully functional operating system. If your primary hard drive ever crashes, you will have a backup option unavailable to those who simply use their external hard drives as file and document backup."
All the Best!

Looking for possible hard drive how hard is it to self install --with windows xp


A few simple steps:

0. find your original Dell "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks, or order a replacement set from Dell, or run software on your computer to burn a set of "System Restore" disks.
1. do an "inventory" of installed programs (Adobe? MS Office?) and extract any "license-keys" you need (anti-virus software, purchased software).
2. backup your E-mail and contacts and music and other files, either to an external disk-drive, or burn some CD/DVD disks, or copy across your local network to another computer.
3. turn the computer off
4. disconnect the AC power
5. remove the battery
6. remove the old disk-drive
7. determine if it was an EIDE ("parallel-ATA") drive, or a SATA drive, and buy a new drive of the same type
8. mount the new disk-drive
9. reinsert the battery
10. reconnect the AC adapter
11. take your "System Restore" disks, and "boot" from the first disk, and reinstall Windows and the Dell applications
12. run Windows Update repeatedly (Service Pack 3, post SP3 fixes, Internet Explorer 8) to get all the fixes, and the fixes-to-the-fixes
13. install anti-virus software
14. install other purchased software, using license-keys you preserved
15. download the latest versions of "free" software (iTunes, Adobe Reader, WinAmp, et cetera)
16. import your "data" files

OR.................

if both the "old" and "new" disk-drives are SATA, and you have a desktop computer with two "unused" SATA ports, you can use software, such as the commercially-sold "Partition Magic", to "clone" the old disk-drive, and to "expand" the volume to span all the "unused/unallocated" space on the new drive, e.g., copy 20GB from "old" to "new", and then "expand" the 20GB partition to the full size of the "new" disk-drive. Install the new drive into your notebook computer, and enjoy the additional "free" space.

Reboot error - did not come with disk


You could have a hard drive failure. In that case you need to get a new on and re-install the operating system. Depending on the operating system which i guess is windows XP you should have no problem re-installing it with a valid license. To optain the software you need to find it on the internet and download it. then use your license to validate it. Hope this helps

You should be able to if you are using quark license administrator as QLA uses the ethernet address commonly known as the MAC address and this is hard wired on the computer and not the hard drive to verify the license.
