Question about Seagate U7 (ST360012A) 60 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I am trying to install a used Seagate ST360012A 60GB hard drive from a dead emachine c2160 into an HP pavilion 6635 as a slave, but the HP doesn't recognize that the drive has been installed. I adjusted the jumpers for master/slave but nothing happens even when I tell it to detect new hardware. How can I get it to see the drive, and how can I wipe it as the computer it came out of is dead..

Best bet is to put the Seagate into an external enclosure. If it reads there, format to NTFS and re-install in the HP. Also, the HP may have drivers on their site for HD management that you'll need to ever see the drive. Check there for downloads under Storage and the ****** may just wake up without the whole external adventure.

I installed a new WD 500GB hard drive in an HP Pavilion 513n as a master and have a 60 GB hard drive as a slave for backup data. Both are set to auto in the BIOS. Every time I turn the computer on even...


I think, in BIOS setting your first booting device is the 60GB HDD. change it to HDD0 as 1st boot, CD Drive as 2nd boot and HDD1 as third boot device and it would not ask any error report.

Hi,

According to your problem first check the hard drive status and make sure that it is ok. If it doesn't detect in bios setup then you can change the cable of the hard drive. Also make sure that the DVD Rom working fine. If the hard drive doesn't detect while you begin setup then clear the bios first. Then reset the bios properly. You may need a firmware update also. If you can not continue the setup then break the partition of the hard drive. You can use partition break up software, like partition magic etc also. If it doesn't solve your problem then you may need to replace the hard drive. To check the hard drive status you can try with another OS installation. Best of luck.

I pulled the seagate 2.5"


Hello,

When you use external adapters to plug drives into USB ports the drive needs to be set for mast not slave. The internal drive is one one channel and external drive is on a different channel so neither drive is a slave, both are masters with not slave drive present. Try removing the jumper you installed and try the drive, it should be seen because all windows XP or later do not need drivers for USB drives.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Can I replace orig hp ze1115 20GB hd w/60GB hd?


No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.

Jumper settings


If you try to enter in safe mode or at last known config and the laptop reboots or freezes then you need to reinstall the operating system if you want to use that hard drive on hp pavilion a1000n. The laptops have different chipset and XP requires to be the same or similar chipset to boot properly.

WD drive won't work as master when Seagate 80GB drive connected as slave.


Hi,

The jumpers on the Seagate must be set to slave.

otherwise they are conflicting for the Active partion and bootloader.

Installing Windows XP on new drive in HP a220n


Your new hard drive has a name, like Seagate, Western Digtail, bla, bla... Go to the Mfg's web site for your drive. Download the bootable floppy disk manager setup utilities. If you have a floppy disk drive. If you don't have a floppy drive most Mfg's allow you to make a bootable CD. Lastly or maybe I should have mentioned this first. Make sure your drive is pinned out correctly. I'm only guessing you bought an IDE drive which has a jumper for setting the drive as a master or a slave or a master with a slave.

Seagate momentus 3 60gb problem


What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.
