    I have just cloned my XP SP3 Drive to an external USB drive using Apricorn Upgrade II.

    I then tried to boot from the cloned USB drive. (Used BIOS setup to turn off local HDD and boot USB drive first).

    I get a BSOD during boot.

Basically this product does not do what it is advertised to do. You have to do a custom clone (not typical as suggested) and try to get an exact copy the drive you want to copy.

But... If you are upgrading to a larger drive you will now have to do a diskpart as an external drive in order to get the complete upgrade your drive.

Second time this has happened, Apricorn ez bus dts power supply


You can use a universal Adapter.
All you need to do is to match the correct voltage and the correct Ampere.
Lets say for example the input of your adapter is : 100-240v, 50,60hz . and 0.5 A
the output is : 12vor 5v 2A
So check this that correspond to the one you already have.
But one thing :: don't use one that is of a higher voltage capacity.
It will burst out forever the disk........
If you need any further help please let me know.

Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

Boot problem


There are three possible options ranging from free (if you are not afraid to open your laptop, locate and remove the bios battery) to $170 (for a new hard drive and a cloning kit).

Option 1: Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays.

Option 2: Resetting an Acer BIOS Password Using Hardware.
If you cannot boot the Acer and don't want to send your computer back to Acer for an unknown amount of time, you can try to reset the BIOS password via hardware.
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Option 3: Possibly resetting BIOS Password using Hard Drive Upgrade Kit and a new Hard Drive.
A colegue told me that he used a hard drive upgrade kit and during the cloning process the hard drive password was erased. He can not recall providing the password when he booted from the bootable cloning CD provided with the Kit and when he replaced the hard drive with the cloned one and botted the laptop, the hard drive password was gone! He had to go into bios to manually enter a new hard drive password.
The kit he used was about $50 - APRICORN EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL 2.5" USB 2.0 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit - Retail. He paid for a bigger hard drive separately, but he just needed bigger hard drive (and found out about the password erasure by accident).

Yes, you can upgrade to 120 GB. Here is an installation guide: http://www.bixnet.com/hadringuh2.html Make sure you purchase a laptop hard drive; they are different than desktop hard drives. A 2.5" one will work. Don't buy it from the site with the installation guide, however. You can get them cheaper from Tigerdirect.com.
