If you have your windows disc, go into your bios. Make sure your disc drive is the FIRST BOOT DEVICE. Then restart your pc and it should load from the cd.

Just purchased a new 160gb Hard Drive for my old Dell Inspiron 6000; originally it was only 60 gb. I tried to install it, it said "not able to read HD". Actual connectors look a little different. Any...


Well the old Dell takes ATA connections. Newer laptops are SATA. Which did you buy?
A new disk drive needs to be partitioned and the operating system needs loaded. Did you do that?
Did you back up all your data to an external device so you can load it on the new disk?

Dell Inspiron 600 - trying to reload, but not


You might need to go into the computer's BIOS and see if it's set to boot from a bootable CD or USB device. If it's set to only boot from the hard drive, it won't even look at other drives. Different computers use different ways to access the BIOS: you might try pressing the F12 key when the boot logo appears. Check your owner's documentation - it should tell you the procedure for your computer.

Computer will not allow installation of system software


yo bro i got a couple things that might help try going to your bios and change the hard drive that it should look to to get the right system running, that is if you have tow different hard drives in the pc. o and also make sure that you have everthing plugged in correctly in your pc. if that doesnt work take out the first hard drive that was installed in the first place and put your new hard drive in its place and put in the right wire also.

INSPIRON 6000 on start up says no boot sector on internal hard drive.


Mickey it sounds like, the system files are corrupted on the hard drive. If you have the disks, I think they are the operating system and the drivers and utilities cd. You would install the operating system cd first and then when that is all done then go ahead and install the drivers and utilities.


If you can't get the operating system to install then the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...


I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.

You could image or ghost the old drive, but you need to have access to it from another system with storage to save the information as there no way to have both drives installed in this model. I believe the easiest and preferred method would be to perform a clean install. You can use a borrowed OS CD provided you have your own product key. You could then get an external USB enclosure to connect your old drive to retrieve data.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.

How to Install a new HD on Dell Inspiron 6000?


You can always parition the drive, and install both Ubuntu and XP (dual boot).

Yes, you will be able to access the files (providing the drive isn't totally crashed), although Ubuntu may not "know" what the files are.
