Toshiba Lappy Hard Drive Problem.... 9 years 2 months ago #23108

Hi folks,

I've just been asked to ghost a toshiba latop hard drive (40 GIG) onto an 80 Gig Fujitsu.

The ghost has taken fine and both look identical (in terms of contents) when slaved on a desktop.

When the fujitsu is installed on the Tecra, the message "read error" appears before the boot process has a chane to begin and that's it - nothing else happens...

A colleague told me that Toshiba Lappys have aversions to particular brand/spec hard-drives although I've not been able to find evidence of this on the web yet...

Does anybody know of any reasons why this could be happening?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,

Kaneda

I wonder if the HDD detection on the laptop's BIOS is set to autodetect?

The BIOS on the Tecra is very basic and doesn't have many user configurable elements. The original drive boots just fine.

Thanks your help :)
