Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
My notebook has space for a second harddrive. I purchased one that is 300 Gig. It fits into the space and connects but when booting up, the notebook does the initial boot, then goes to a blank screen and never finishes the final boot into windows. Can the notebook handle a drive this large, and if yes, how can I get it to recognize the second drive? I couldn't see anything in the setup to change. The first harddrive is 120 Gig and is partitioned by HP into C (my files) and D (restore files). I hope you can help as I only have about 1 gig of space left and need the larger drive to store my data and photos (I require them on the road and don't want to have to carry an external drive/equipment). Thanks for any help,
Hi, hope you are using XP. Before connecting the drive, make the jumper setting of the second drive to slave. Also make sure that the first drive's jumper setting is at Master and not CS(cable select). Reboot and enter into BIOS setup and check to see that both the drives are detected.
Hope this will help you.
thank u for using
