Question about Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103 Notebook
I installed a new internal hard drive on my computer and now when I turn it on I recieve this error message. I have a Toshiba Satellite 1115-s103. I purchased a new Hitatchi Travelstar 2.5 hard drive. Is it possible this hard drive is incompatible with my laptop? I have tried every solution I could possilbly find on the internet such as disabling the netwook boot which is pretty much the only solution I could find short of getting a new hard drive (which I just did). Any other possible solutions someone could suggest would be greatly appreciated!!
In case you haven't given up or solved the problem, you probably need to boot from some other device (e.g. the Windows XP or other recovery CD) and define an active primary parititon on the new hard drive, format it, and reinstall the operating system before it will be usable. .

- did the old drive mallfunctioned, or u just wanted to put a larger one ?
- i presume that both drives have the same standard (pata most probably (lots of pins at the connection part...))
- have u checked the cable connection, and cables (some may get loose when removing hardware ...)
-also check the BIOS for hidden settings (see u;re manual). There may be settings on the mode that the drive should work..
