Question about Computers & Internet
I have purchased new seagate laptop IDE HDD before two days. And I am getting below Warning 3rd boot after my winXp home installation + drivers on HP Pavilion dv1000.
SMART failure predicted on hard disk 0: ST9160821A-(PM) WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive A failure may be imminent
Press F1 to continue.
after F1. windows starts. but Above prompt should not be there for new HDD. the same prompt, was there with my OLD hdd ( bad One).
There is a big problem with newer conponents and Win XP versions prior to SP2. Especially with newer motherboards.
You have to make a bootable SP2 disk if you don't already have one. To do this use the slipstream proceedure specified on the Ms website. Many other websites describe the process with easier language.
Slipstreaming is a common practice now. Essentially, you copy your original install disk to the c: drive then download SP2 to C: drive then download the slipstream utility from MS. Running the slipstream utility then inserts the proper drivers (ide and HD drivers too) into the licensed copy you have. You then create a bootable disk from the slipstreamed files you have.
This approach is resolving alot of blue STOP errors and SMART errors.
ALSO, you want to make sure you are installing any drivers provided by the MB manufacturer AND Drive maker.
