Can I install a NEW 1T HDD where an old HDD failed?


In a lot of cases, the recovery disks you built may be looking for installation files (windows installation files) from a partition that is on the original drive of the machine. Your new drive would not contain this partition or the files. If you can STILL get into the old drive, I would consider putting both drives in your desktop.....and then use an disk imaging software to do a disk to disk clone of your drive rather than reinstalling Windows from the recovery disk. There are plenty of options for free cloning software.....just google free disk imaging, and you will probably find a ton of options with instructions. One thing to note....when cloning a drive be VERY careful when choosing your SOURCE and DESTINATION drives. Your SOURCE would be your old drive with your data, and your DESTINATION is your new drive. If you mess up that step, it will overwrite your old drive with the "blank" data from the new drive, and your data will be lost.

The other advantage to cloning, is you will get an exact replica of your current configuration. you dont need to reinstall programs or reconfigure things.

How to install a new harddrive in an acer 23" all-in-one?


If you replace the HDD you will have to do a reinstall of Windows or clone the drive. If you have the Factory Revovery DVD's then you can reinstall to Original Factory Condition. All you data will be lost. If you clone the drive, it will be as it was when you removed it. That said, is there a problem with the HDD? Why are you replacing It? The HDD hardware replace is the easy part.

Want to replace 80Gb HDD with a bigger one. How? Do I have to copy everything from the original one to the new one before actually replacing it? how?


Hi there,
Before you change the 80 GB Hard Drive you can take the backup of your hard drive to the External Hard Drive or if you have any sata case so you put your new hard Drive in the sata case and make 2-3 partitions in the new drive and copy your data in the new hard drive except in first partition which will be primary C Drive for your laptop and will replace data when you install windows in it. after the windows is installed and your data is verified in your new hard drive you can clear your old hard Drive or use it as an External Hard Drive (as you like )
2nd thing which is more safer and reliable is that you make backup CD/DVDs for your data before proceed to formatting or even changing hard drives, it will be very useful and helpful for any unforeseen data loss
if you require more assistance regarding this feel free to reply to this post
Regards, BA

Friend bought used Gateway 1200cs w/win xp and no disks, she wants to put new HDD in and I need to make a disk to re-install windows or copy it to a partition. how to?


Some HDDs come with a cloning software - get that. Then you won't need to redo the operating system. However, if you have the original operating system disc, it has provisions to create another partition, but you want to install a new HDD. If I understand you correctly, she wants her old data in the new HDD - that's a separate issue. If I were you, I would just install the new HDD along with the old HDD together and have the old HDD run the operating system.

I have a drive on an HP laptop that is going south. I want to reinstall vista which is on the D drive partition as I was not given a Vista installation disk. How do I reinstall from the D drive?


If you have a HDD going South, I belive your recovery partition will be on that same drive.....If the drive you have is still good, you can buy another drive like a Seagate and it comes with a cd that has a clone program on it. Get an EIDE / Sata to usb adapter, they can be purchased at computer outlets and attach the new HDD to your laptop via the adapter. Then using the cloning utility, clone your existing drive to the new one. When it finishes, take out the original drive and replace it with the new one and reboot....the laptop will now think that the new one is the old one and the laptop will work as it did before and the HDD do not have to be the same size, you can get a bigger one if you want, the clone program does not care about mismatched sizes.

Cannot boot from Momentus Ultra ATA 160 GN HDD


it can only clone the windows files and folders there is other files located on a hidden system on the hard drive, when you install and new hard drive these file are fixed to the drive. to make a bootable drive you need to install these files from a windows disc then add clone files over the top so these files don't get deleted.

Samsung DVR HR 737 substitution Old original Hdd 160 GB (dead)


DVRs, not sure at the moment about the one you have, are limited with the brands and size hard drives it is able to accommodate. I'll advise you to check the manual you have with the DVR to see the brands and sizes that it can accommodate.
