1 - Using a stack of DVD RW blank disks, or a large capacity USB Flash/Jump Drive, back up your Laptop computer completely. If necessary, Use WinZIP to ensue that everything has been compressed into the smallest capacity possible.
2 - When you are certain that you have backed up the drive completely, remove the older drive
3 - Line up the new drive and the old drive and ensure the jumpers are set to the same settings as they were set on the older HDD.
4 - Once you are sure, you then restore everything from the back-up drive for the old hdd to the new disk drive.
5 - Test to ensure that everything from the old drive has been backed up from the old drive to the new drive.
6 - If you are comfortable that your backup has been completly restored from the backup meda to the new, larger hard drive, then be certain that you have restored from the older drive to the new drive, tighten all screws and cables, then close all ports and ensure that everything has been done properly by and for you.
7 - Be certain that you have created the same user accounts in the new drive as you had on the older drive.
8 - Now, power off the new drive while in the laptop. Wait about 30 seconds to one minute, then restart the new hard disk drive.
9 Test everything, to be sure that everything works properly. Go through everything from the top of the menu to the bottom of the menu. Try all accessories, try all applications. Ensure that all works right and that the applications work as they used to work, when it was on the old drive.
10 - Remember, you have a warranty on the new HDD, so be sure that you have tested everything to ensure that it all works properly, before you sign off on this new drive.
11 - Once you are certain that it all works correctly, you can then be sure that it is working properly and competely, because only you know if things are working correctly as they should be.
12 - Then you can sign off and you can be sure that things work properly.
13 - As carpenters say ... measure twice; cut once. You can only do this one time, so if you measure it more than one tim, you can be certain that you will get it done correctly and be happy that you did it right. from beginning to end.
Have fun. Don't be too serious about it, but do be careful, and get it right. Remember, get it right the first time, and you will be pleased with the results at the end.

How to wipe clean CF-19 hard drive


If the Panasonic Toughbook CF19 has a Hard Disk Drive,
then you should be trying to wipe it by booting from an
external USB Optical (cdrom) drive.
You have to enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key,
and set USB CDROM as the first bootable device.
Then save and exit the bios.
The external optical (cdrom) will now boot
with the proper bootable media.
If you have a HIREN bootable CD then one of the
tools will allow you to WIPE and RE-FORMAT the
internal hard disk drive.
Good Luck.

Windows xp installion does not see my hard drive on Panasonic CF-74


Just a thought but are you using XP Pro SP2 or SP3?

In my experience, only XP Service Pack 3 will see your
Hard Disk Drive, not XP Service Pack 2.

Good Luck!

Panasonic Toughbook won't load Windows XP CD


You can check to see if the hard drive is dislodged, but other than that I don't know what to tell you. If you know the drive is functioning correctly then your motherboard is probably dead.

I have a panasonic cf-51 with 40-gig drive. I want to upgrade the drive with something at least 160 gig. Do you have any drives available? What spec should I be looking for?


Basically, any EIDE interface hard drive will work, if you buy a new drive, just make sure to use the included software to boot the laptop up with in order to initialize the new disc and make it useable on your system.

Cf-18 toughbook


The BIOS may not support the larger drive at all; I suggest you look for a Toughbook forum and repost there and check Panasonic's site for a manual download and possibly a BIOS upgrade if the unit is equipped with a flash BIOS.
