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

Id like to clone my hard drive including all programs & OS, is it possible? Thanks


This is usually possible using Norton Ghost and a second PC for the ghosting process. Depending on what Operating System you are running, will determine which version of ghost you will need to purchase.

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.

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.

How to format c:drive as it contain vista operating system . i only have a vista recovery disc which only install back vista to its factory level. please suggest me the procedure to format c:drive so...


hi,
yea you may, but make sure that you have already created a *Ghost* image of your current setup.

All you need is a bootable CD with some utilities which will help you out.

Try "hiren's Magic Disk 9.5" : it is bootable disk with proper menus and lots of utilities to make you king of your system.

This disk is usually used by System professionals (including me) :)

Instructions:
1. Boot your system with this magic disk
2. Goto Clone Disk option (Ghost disk)
3. Choose Best compression version
4. utility will start Symantec Ghost which will ask you for the source partition and destination partition for making images.
5. proceed with proper answers.
6. once the ghost imaging is complete, store this ghost image in your external storage drive
7. again boot your system with this magic disk
8. goto Partition utilties
9. Select Acronis Partition manager
10. You'll love to use this software for hard disk maintanence.

Regards,
kuldeep

Ibm thinkpad T40 Hard Drive change out


After fdisk and format you need to ensure that operative system is installed into yor hard drive. Using ghost you restore the image disk by booting from ghost image CD if you made a bootable image disk. Ensure Bios is set up to boot from CD.
If you used Norton Ghost ensure you captured the image of full bootable original hard disk drive for same computer. If it does not boot after restoring ghosted image, than the image it is probably not complete. If hard disk image is not good, easiest thing to do is using Windows install CD to installl again operative system, then you eventually restore ghost image.

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.

Error 437


Hi, I did a Google on your error 437 and it would seem that this problem pops up only if: 1. using SYMANTEC (Ghost); or 2. using Original Toshiba Restore Disc. where possibly: a. the restoration procedure needs to write a log file somewhere (A:?) which does not exist and therefore waits; b. the restore disc is probably corrupted; and/or c. the Ghost image is corrupted. A few things you can try: * On another computer, check the integrity of your recovery disc; * Get hold of another Windows installer and do a complete, clean, fresh install (you will have to use your original Win numbers @ the bottom of your laptop). You will only need the recovery disc for your hardware drivers; or * Call Toshiba Support and get assistance. I was made to understand that they provide replacement Recovery Disc (>50USD). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
