Latoof has supported my own thoughts. Identifying and being confident with the chosen item was the next concern. Why did I worry??

I want to upgrade the hard drive on my Advent 6001 laptop to a 250gb one. How do I then copy Windows onto the new hard drive as the laptop doesn`t recognise the CDROM as a boot device, not even in the

Running under the assumption that the CD is actually working, have you checked the BIOS settings to indicate that you want the CD to be the first boot device?

Alternatively, some if not most systems will accept an F12 during boot up to query the user where to boot from.

Al querer instalar wxp-sp2 me aparece el mensaje que no encuentra ningún HDD, pienso que es porque no reconoce los drivers. La máquina es una Laptop Dell Latitude c840 y el HDD es un...

Creo que ese laptop no supporta SATA para XP, y se puede tratar hacer lo con un cambio en BIOS.

Prende el laptop, y empuja "F2" inmediatamente cuando aparece el Dell logo. En el setup menu en BIOS empuja "SATA native mode" para tenerlo apagado.

Inserta el Windows XP CD en el CD ROM drive, y apagar y apagar el lapto.

Dell laptop with no cdrom and travelstar HDD

In this case you would have to...

1) preformat the drive

2) make it bootable in DOS

3) copy the CD contents to the drive

4) boot the target computer with the drive and run WINNT.EXE in the I386 directory to start the install.

Hitachi DK23EB-40 HDD


Basically what you have posted covers all that you need to know and do. The only issue would be the capacity in Gb of the new HD. Most currently available are far too big for your laptop. What you need to get is any 2.5" HD that is identical in size or just slightly bigger than what you used to have. Three reasons for this: 1) your motherboard may not recognize the newer/bigger HDs and therefore you would probably encounter problems even at the BIOS/CMOS stage; 2) the power requirement of the newer HDs may not be compatible with what your laptop can supply; and 3) the heat generated by newer HDs is considerably higher but your laptop was designed to accommodate older models only.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
