WEll, yes, but there may be connection issues, as most newer units no longer use the ribbon cables of yesteryear. You need to change the jumper to SLAVE on the drive. You can also get USB hookups that will accept and access external drives.

Emachines et1331g 05w


Emachine website is Download Center ALL Products No BIOs update for it is listed for the 3TB problem. But back in the days of the 1 Gig problem, we would just make different partitions to get around the problem. Might work as well here. If you installing a new harddrive do a clone of your old one. It will make a copy of all your current harddrive info and layout onto the 3TB drive. Just larger partitions if you need help on doing this just ask and give the brand and model. So I can look up the software from the manufacturer. Also state one brand of the old drive.

Tip

Dual Boot Xp & windows 7


First you have to create partition.You need at least two partition. One in which you intall Xp and other for win 7. WARNIG BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE THIS.*(You can create partion by any hard drive manager you can make a hard drive partition in control panel>administrative tool>create & manage hard drive partition)
Now install xp first in one partition. If you have pre installed then avoid this step.
Now install Win 7 in another partition.
After you restart the machine will ask to chose your os. & just select the required OS.

If any problem appears then just put win XP disk & repair it.

You cant install win Xp after windows 7.
You have to format win 7 before installing Xp.
Commiting any of trick or Tweak you need to backup your data in another HD partition
WARNIG BACK UP YOUR DATA

Data on clickfree is from my old XP, when i connect to my newer windows 7 computer, it wants me to format.


Win 7 doesn't recognize the format of XP drive. Put the Click drive on an XP machine on the network and copy files you need then format on Win 7 machine.

Please note that installing an operating system on an OEM machine OTHER than what was factory-installed on it may void either phone support for the customized OS or the warranty itself.

Lenovo Machines, like most new OEM models are set, by default to run their hard drives in AHCI mode for better performance & power management. Go to the computer's system setup F1 or Del while the computer is starting up to locate the Power, Hard drive or System configuration (Lenovo computers have different System Setup formats for each model so you'll have to navigate around a bit since they may be labeled differently).

Once you find it, you have to change the setting from AHCI to IDE or Compatibility, whichever option is available (once again, each model has a different format & labeling convention). Save the changes & exit the setup & retry the installation. Should work.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

Hi,

Your not going to be able to update the BIOS without having XP installed on the computer.
I had the same problem myself as a motherboard i had would not update with Win 7 installed.
If you have a spare hard drive and an XP install disk then i recommend installing XP on that and then download the exe BIOS update file and run it from within Windows to update the BIOS.
After that just turn the PC off, put back your Win 7 hard drive and your good to go.


Regards.

Is the Seagate ST3200822AS an External Drive ( like USB connectivity ) or actual Hard Drive ? Even if it is Internal Hard Drive, You can make connect it to Win 7 and still keep it as Seperate Drive.

Connect the Hard Drive to Win 7 PC and Make it Slave ( partition ) by changing the Jumper on the Hard Drive ( jumper is a small pin or a lock that makes a Hard Drive Primary or Slave.

Once you connect the HD to Win 7, you will find new Drives Created in Win 7, this way you will differentiate between the Win 7 Drives and XP Drives

This link will how you the jumper position : Remove the jumper from slot 1 and put it in slot 2

I think you may have a SATA DVD and your "Old" machine is IDE, SATA is a tiny connector and a slim power plug. IDE is a long slot full of pins and the Usual white power connector. Either that or vice-versa, in any event, either get a proper replacement, the best, or you can get converters for your drive. Ebay has them. they are called USB to SATA/IDE dongles.
