My emachines says it cannot find the hard drive and i get blue screen after i restart it


Things to try:
1. Remove and reconnect the hard drive.
2. Remove all USB attached devices. Like other hard drives and anything non-critical.
3. Wipe and reinstall Windows once the hard drive is properly installed.
4. Replace hard drive if bad.

HP xw 4400 will not recognize my hard drive when trying to install OS Windows XP Prof.


Windows XP had a hard time recognizing hard drives larger than 127 GB. The best solution is to install Windows XP with service pack 2 or 3 already slipstreamed. Otherwise, you are going to have to partition your hard drive with at least 1 partition of 127 GB or smaller.

I reached capacity on my 220 gb hard drive. Got a 750 gb drive, copied my old one to it via acronis and replaced the old drive. Turned on laptop and got Dell diagnostics. When I exit diagnostics screen...


Unfortunately you cannot replace drives in that manner. The 2 drives are completely different and when you mirrored the smaller to the larger, your system does not recognize the drive because it is effectively not formatted or partitioned properly. The process you used would work between 2 drives of the same size and model, but not between 2 different drives.

Your best choice to to do a clean install of the OS on to the new drive, get everything installed and updated, and then transfer the important data ONLY from the old drive to the new.

Hard Drive


You can replace it with a larger one, just make sure you buy the proper hard drive. If its and IDE hard drive, buy and IDE hard drive, if its an SATA Hard drive, buy an SATA Hard drive. also make sure after you install the new hard drive that you use the operating system cd to format the drive and to install the operating system.

Formating hard disk


IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

I want to ghost an operating system is it posible/


There are several programs available to ghost including Symantec's Ghost or FREE open source G4U Ghost4Unix (http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/) just to name a few.

Most programs will allow you to break the images into smaller pieces to allow for burning to cds for example.

The problem I see is that almost any OS since W2K will be too big to fit on a 2GB flash drive.

If you are wanting to boot an OS from the drive I suggest you check out: http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm

I have a emachines and i want to install a new hard


windows 98 uses the FAT 32 file system and will only read up to 127GB. You could format the drive and divide it into smaller sections and windows should be able to read it fine. Either 2 sections of 80GB each, or multiple smaller sections.
-Download and use the updated FDISK.EXE utility program from Microsoft.
-Keep your partiton size for the Primary partiton that is to be used for drive C: to 127GB or less.
-Use the Windows 98 FORMAT.COM utility program. Note that while the prgram is running it will display an incorrect size for your partition. After it has finished, the summary screen will show the correct size that was formatted.
Formatting large hard drives is extremely slow. If you have a disk setup utility that came with your new hard drive, use it instead of FORMAT.COM. This can save you HOURS of waiting.

My Book 1Tb will not let me put movies on it


I know exactly what your problem is. You are trying to add a file bigger than 4 GB on a fat32 external hard drive. You simply cant put something that big in there without breaking it into smaller bits. You could easily add a bunch of small files just not huge files bigger than 4GB.
Your solution would be to reformat your WD external drive to a ntfs. That can be done as easy as right clicking your external drive through my computer and highlighting "reformat". Good luck and I hope you dont forget this little thing about computers..sometimes when you get a good deal on pc hardware its for a reason :)
this is good for all hard drives including western digital
