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
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.
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. Get a free trial of Norton Ghost here >>>>>>
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
get a lappy external caddy that is powered by usb place new harddrive in it. download a copy of hirens sorry dont have the link or use norton ghost ifyou have that boot lappy to os then load cd norton ghost or hirens.hirens has multiple software to disk copy simple and user friendlyso hirens is you best bet. after disk copy swap lappy drive around. send lappy model if you dont know how to install new harddrive i'll loook up to hirensfor you but you could try it was easy to find the last time i got it.
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.
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.
