You can´t swap the internal hard drive if your current firmware is superior to v1.4.0, because system locks it during bootloading (system reads hard drive ID).

Windows won't start


hi i as you said you have no cdrom you are using an external cdrom this may be your down fall but i shell try my best for you ok .
first start the laptop up press f2 or del to go into *********** board settings when you have done that move your arrows to the right finding your boot option go into that and remove your hard drive from that this will make your sys search for the usb or cdrom to load from then you must save this on leaving the motherboard when you leave it will say save y do that then it will restart and find your cdrom make sure that you have the windows disk in the cdrom before you start ok follow the on screen insturctions telling you to format the hard drive this will wipe the hard drive ready for installing the new windows program on it ok
the reason when you loaded the windows on the other pc and put it in your laptop is the motherboard is not the main op sys for the hard drive hope this work for you if not get back in touch and we shell try another way ok thanks all the best

Recovery code 4 on archos 504


I had the same problem and manage to solve it. You need to do the following

a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pc
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it
d. copy firmware from pc and past to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. that should work. I've spent the best part of 10 hours looking for a solution to the dreaded recovery code 4. The problem is a corrupt os. I hope you're as lucky as me.
I still have a problem with mine though...a screen that blink constantly.

Kingston DataTraveler2GB


Hi, I couldn't get any software utility or firmware updater/repair from the Kingston site, however, I have tried the HP Drive Key Boot Utility and it works even for Kingston and JetFlash. The bad side is it completely erases the contents of the USB drive. Should you want to venture and try it, it is available for download at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/serveroptions/us/download/23839.html file name is cp006049.exe Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
