Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Notebook
I`m having a problem trying to boot a dell mini 9 Notebook. I saw a person on a forum who was having the same problem and here`s what he did to fix it....The Recovery Console (RC) does not run properly from an XP CD if the SATA Mode in the BIOS is set to AHCI or RAID. By setting the SATA Mode to IDE the RC works correctly from an XP CD and does see the HDD. I wanted to know exactly how to do this. When I go into the bios main tab on the menu I am limited on being able to move down or up in order to select different selections. I would appreciate all the help I can get in this matter. Thanks!

SOURCE: Laptop SATA drive not working
You cannot take a hard drive out of your faulty HP laptop and insert it into any laptop and expect it to run/boot up. When Windows is installed on a laptop, it is configured with device drivers for that particular laptop and it wont work in another laptop with different devices.
Replace the Dell's hard drive back into its laptop and the Dell should function normally.
To recover data off the SATA Hitachi hard drive, connect this hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter with the Hitachi hard drive into the USB port of your Dell. The Dell will detect the Hitachi as an external Mass storage device. You can then open the various folders and files to back up your data onto the Dell laptop or USB memory stick.
If you want to, you can use the Hitachi hard disk as an USB external hard drive by installing it into an USB SATA hard drive enclosure.
