Does your hard drive get detected in the BIOS? If yes then you can recover data by plugging that hard drive as secondary and running a recovery application like Recover My Files.

Compaq Mini 700EL hdd not recognised


If you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

PORT - 00:HARD DISK, ST3250312AS SMART COMMAND FAILED


SMART stands for "Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology".

You BIOS has detected a pending error in your hard drive.

take the hard drive out and use an enclosure to extract all the data you might want to take out of it soon, since that hard drive is failing.


If possible, try going into the BIOS and disabling SMART, so you can boot into Windows and copy all the necessary files you want to get off of the hard drive.

Removing the hard drive would ultimately get rid of this problem though


Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key usually Delete or F2 to enter setup
this will differ depending on which bios you have


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS

Navigate the BIOS menu using your arrow keys and use the on-screen legend for reference on how to change settings.

Look for a menu titled "Hardware" "Hard disk" or something similar. You are looking for an option that references "S.M.A.R.T."


Highlight the "S.M.A.R.T" option and set it to "Disabled" or "Off." Once you have changed the setting, choose "Save and Exit" from the menu or press the keyboard key corresponding to it (as listed in the legend).


Select "Yes" or press "Y" when the BIOS asks you to confirm your choice.


hope this helps

I've connected my Samsung 250GB HD250HJ SATA drive (from a Linkstation) to my PC with a sata-ide adapter. It's recognised at boot time but I get the message 'primary master hard disk fail'. It isn't...


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.
