By any chance did the ide drive come from a computer with a single core processor? If so you'll need to reinstall windows xp.
When you boot off the xp cd there will be 2 separate screens with a "repair" option, ignore the first one as it will just take you to the recovery console.
The 2nd one will dump an xp install on top of your current one, thus allowing you to keep everything

Hi, I have destop[ dell pentium R 4 cpu 3 GHz 1.99 GB of ram and 40 GB rom . I want to now if can change the hard disk and put another of 160 GB. tanks you carlos.


A) If you have the Restoration Disk (CD), or a full installation disk of the Windows operating system, the answer is yes.

B) If you have an image backup program, such as Norton Ghost, Acronis True Image, or DriveImage XML, for example, the answer is yes.

The Windows operating system is copied over to the new harddrive.

It would be easier, and more cost effective to just install the 160GB harddrive as a Slave drive.

I don't know if your harddrive is an IDE (PATA) unit, or a SATA unit.

Here is more information on installing either an IDE harddrive, or a SATA harddrive, as a Slave drive in a desktop computer,

1) IDE {PATA} harddrive:

1A) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMTOgt3UiB4


2) SATA harddrive:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCgFYNLzn18&NR=1

IDE, also known as PATA is the older style of technology.
SATA is the newer style.

(Parallel ATA
Serial ATA )

The beauty of SATA is not only the faster speed, but if you connect a SATA cable (Data cable) to ANY SATA connector on the motherboard, BIOS will find the device.

BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) will find the harddrive with the operating system on it, first.
Then it will recognize that you have a second SATA harddrive also.

(BIOS looks at both SATA harddrives.
When it finds the one with the operating system on it, BIOS will disregard the other SATA harddrive)

I have a XP desktop computer with SP3 upgrade. I want to replace the small IDE hard drive with an SATA 1GB drive. I can connect both drives to the motherboard. What is the easiest way to transfer the...


Well you can backup the system simply with the system state. However some files will be ignored. So what you have to do is to "Clone" the disk. That is the easiest way. Most of the Disk Cloning Software are commercial and not for free. But there are a few. You can use this product. This runs on Windows (win32). XX CLONE.
Download and install it. It has a Graphical User Interface with the necessary options. The image is bootable by default. It is fairly easy to get used with. Just plugin the HDD and back it up. Make sure you properly set the SATA as a slave. These settings can be accessed via boot options in BIOS. Use del,esc,F2 or F11 to jump in to BIOS settings before the system boots Windows. Hope you know the procedure. (Otherwise the System will be boot using the SATA drive instead of the IDE drive). Online manual for XXCLONE.
If you have any commercial product such as Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image you can use with a hassle. They are ideal for disk imaging. You have to purchase a key how ever. If you use a torrent downloader such as Utorrent, you can download with a key. But you cannot Register the key since they are used keys. So if you like to do that (we do not enforce piracy) download and use one of them. They are user friendly software and easy to coop with.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Please rate the answer if it helps you to solve the issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya!

I HAVE AN EEE PC AND KEEP GETTING AN ERROR MESSAGE SAYING 'EEE PC TRAY UTILITY HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM. ERROR TYPE:BEX P1:AsTRAY.EXE P2:5.1.13018 P3:4886b209 P4:AsTRAY.EXE P5:5.1.1.3018


first make a image of the partition using norton ghost. (you cand find it on a hirens boot cd), next uninstall the tray utility. if it is still the same problem, try reinstalling the operating system. if not reinstall the utility and see if it works. if it doesn't works and you don't want to reinstall the operating system, remake your partion from the image created initially using norton ghost

You may need to address the way that the old HDD was used in the BIOS. Meaning that if you had regular IDE drive the setting that may be in the BIOS might need to bee disabled and that could be the cause to the new SATA IDE controller you have installed as a boot device. Also if you are trying to boot from you new SATA drive you will need to install some form of and operating system on it like windows or whatever you have been using.

Sometimes it’s easier to create a disk image of the old drive and transfer it to you new SATA, using a disk image utility like Norton Ghost.

Of course I am assuming that you are using a PC and not a MAC.

Duel boot system first xp then vista


Wow....

First I would check the BIOS settings. Make sure that the slave and master jumpers are correct on the drives.

Wouldn't it be easier to make one drive Windows XP on one drive while running Vista on the other?

It would make things easier to troubleshoot.
