Is it possible to install Win7 update on replacement HD - a HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook PC


It should be possible. You should search a free toll number for your country to ask Microsoft about this situation. Also you can take out your old hdd and use Ghost to mirror it on the new hdd :) - you just clone the old hdd

I have a dell gx240 im trying o make it boot and it just wont.i have used maxblast5 and 4 ive tried xp os and it wont install the hardrvives are used from an old computer,wht can i do to stsrtthe install


If your using the Dell recovery disk that came with the computer, chance are it wont install unless your using an identical hard drive as the original that was installed in it. You may need a new full OS disk. If you still have the original drive, may be able to ghost or clone the old drive and get it to work. There are quite a few programs for copying (ghosting, cloning) a complete hard drive image onto a new drive.

I downgraded my new Presario C700 from Vista to XP. It crashed, and everone here agrees to re-install the Operating System. I do not have the disks (thanks, Ciruit City!) But my old laptop, a Presatio 700...


Hi there.
This may not work because of the different hardware that's used in the laptops.
Saying that what you could do is clone the working operating system onto the C700's hard drive using Norton Ghost.
This beauty bit of software is great for backing up your operating systems to other hard drives just in case the worst happens.

Good luck with it and please remember to read all the information first before you attempt to clone the hard drive

New hdd for laptop from Nippon Labs


Yes you can format this drive from your XP machine, or in vista (or xp for that matter) right click on my computer and then left click on manage.

When the computer management screen comes up highlight "Disk Management" on the left side. This will then display your drives in the right side. From here you can right click on the drive and create partitions, format etc.

You will need ghost or some other cloning software if you want to image the old drive to the new one. However if you have restore disks for the computer you should also be able to just install the OS on the new drive.

Hope this helps

Restoring my Sony Notebook to factory settings


Make new disks from the 60G HD before replacing it. If there is no restore partition then you will need to clone your old drive.
You need a HDD cloning software like Norton Ghost, a usb 2.5" drive enclosure.

Upgrading HDD in acer ferrari


5400 to 7200 RPMs? yes, but the speed change may not be that noticable.

in cloning, it is best if you use a software, if you do this often, i'de recommend the Norton Ghost, but if this is just a one time operation, just use a safe freeware to create and image of your exsisting HDD.

here's a link you may want to look at. this is page 2, you may check pag 1 about the Ghost.
