Recuce the 3 Gb/sec (SATA-II) speed to 1.5 Gb/sec (SATA-1) using ESTOOL available on the samsung website.

I found the Samsung HD103UJ unreliable. Read about my findings here:

Good luck!

If tou can find it in booting time on bios screen, Just goto,,, start>control panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>storage>disk management. You should see the new drive. Click on it and try import foreign disk . it should bring the disk. try making new oartitions there.

Error Hard drive reports a read error

Try doing a system restore, if that does not work. Check The cable that connects motherboard to Hard drive, it's a bad cable, or a bad broken Hard drive on your hands.

Check the jumper settings on the new drive drive,it should be set to MASTER otherwise it will not boot. Also check your BIOS settings to insure that the computer is seeing the drive.

Bios does not detect samsung hard drive - what can I do?

All I can asume is that you are trying to install this on a slightly older computer. All is not lost though. you need to find out the name and model of your motherboard and go to thge web site to see if there is a bios update. if there is then get it and use it mthods vary but instructions will be on your motherboads web site.

Try that first as the second method is not my prefered one. Next you can try to set the drive up on a newer machine and whilst doing so split the partitions into 4 so that you would end up with what looks like 4 drive of just under 250Gb (You wont get 250Gb becuase of overheads)
Try it in your older computer and if all is good you are away to the races.

If that fails you are looking at using software to fool the bios. This has the advantage in that you can use the whole drive and dont need to creat partiions but quite often has a speed disadvantage becuase software has to do a lot of work.

The software is here but I hope you got it working way before you need this
