Yes the PC is compatible. You can install it as a second hard drive. But to do this, you need a hardware kit (cable), you can buy here:

  • access all information on the hard disk for all users.

    I tried to set up a link today from my new laptop computer Windows 7 my most top of desktop running vista.  The liaison program stated that the administrator on my old computer was only a temporary user.  I tried to set up the account as a permanent user without realizing that it would replace the current account.  I have now no access to programs from hard drive of the main user I was using.  I was wondering if there is anything I can do to access the hard disk with this user and import files?  I forgot almost all programs appear on the computer but open to anything.

    Hi kismet.

    1. What do you mean by link program?

    2. What have you tried to do?

    3. how many accounts do you currently on the computer and what are they?

    4. what happens when you try to access the files on the hard drive?

    It seems that you do not have permissions to access the files on the hard drive.

    I suggest that take you the files and folder try to access.

    To take ownership of a folder

    (a) right click on the folder you want to take control and then click Properties.

    (b) click on the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the owner tab.

    (c) click on Edit. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (d) click on the name of the person you want to give to the property.

    (e) If you want that person to be the owner of the files and subfolders in this folder, select the check box Replace owner subcontainers and objects .

    (f) click OK.

    Troubleshoot "access denied" when opening files or folders

    I hope this helps!

  • Try to migrate from the hard disk for ssd drive

    Hello, 4 days ago I bought dell inspiron with windows 8.1 5748 and a 1 TB hard drive.

    I also bought samsung 250 GB of ssd drive 840EVO to replace the disk of 1 TB of the laptop. I cloned the HARD disk drive and restored the image in the ssd drive and when I mounted the SDS disc and shot to the top of the laptop I got an error that it cannot detect a drive... Press F2 to enter setup F5 for diagnostics and F1 to reboot.

    First I made sure to rise properly. After I checked I entered the bios where I noticed that the drive is recognized in the details of the system. The model was correct, the capasity as well. Fashion was ahci.

    I ran the diagnostics and they couldn't locate a drive.

    So, is this an incompatibility? I checked for updates to the bios and I see I m to date on that. The player is surelly ok as I have tested on another pc...

    What can I do?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Add1ctiv3,

    We recommend that you use the recovery disks that are you ready when you got your system to restore the image of the original on the SSD hard drive. Since they have the same size, it should work without problem.

  • Move the existing 5.5 ESXi installation of the HARD disk on USB.

    I need help on what would be the best approach to move my existing ESXi 5.5 install the HARD disk to the new USB.

    Then you tell your environment uses the local disk to your VM data store (s)? In addition, you want to move your partition ESXi to USB and recover the local disk space? I think if it was me, the the more safe thing to do would be to shut down the system, pull on the local drive on just enough to disable / he dethrone, insert the USB key and run ESXi installation. Then (after checking the boot order) reinstall the local disk and boot the system. Once the USB key version boots, make your configurations (DNS, NTP, license etc.) and add the data store (s) existing local drive. You can then add existing virtual machines via "navigation" of the data store (s).

  • Capacity of the hard disk for NX9030


    I have a laptop HP Compaq NX9030. The hard disk starts to show errors so I intend to replace it. Does anyone know if the laptop has a limited capacity for replacement hard drives?

    Thank you


    You have the Intel 855 chipset. In order to launch a hard drive larger than 137 GB, you need help for 48-bit Large Block Addressing in the chipset, BIOS and operating system. I find contradictory information on the ability of the chipset 855 doing of 48bits LBA. I also wonder if ever taken HP worth of produce a BIOS that would make 48 bit LBA in this model being the biggest hard drive offered 60 gigs. In other words, I think you should assume 120 GB is size max hard drive you can use and the only way I can think to prove otherwise is to buy the largest disk and install it. Windows XP Sp1a and superior does not large drives.

  • Increase the capacity of the hard disk for VM


    I use ESX 4.0 with vSphere 4.0.

    When there is no snapshots more I would like to increase the capacity of the hard disk of the virtual machine in the menu to change settings / Hard disk. There is MS Windows Srv 2008 R2 64-bit installed.

    What is the right way to do it? Operating system, there is no problem with this increased disc? Primary partition will automatically increase as or what I have to do it myself later?

    There should not be problems with the guest operating system when you increase the size of the virtual disk. After the increase in size in the settings of the virtual machine, you need to resize the NTFS partition in the VM Windows 2008 disk management.


  • Emulate a CD-ROM drive for the actual installation on the HARD disk

    How is used to emulate a CD-ROM drive, to mount a Win7 ISO, VMware Player installation

    and do an actual facility in one of my partitions of HARD drive?

    The ISO is already defined with an Autounattend.xml file.

    for other things like VMware Player trying to make are not necessary.

    This should be simple enough, but do not see the options for this.

    Read page 77, 78 configuration DVD, CD-ROM and readers of diskette to see how to connect an ISO Image.

    The ISO is already defined with an Autounattend.xml file.

    for other things like VMware Player trying to make are not necessary.

    Read page 24, 25 manual installation of a guest operating system.

    and do an actual facility in one of my partitions of HARD drive?

    This should be simple enough, but do not see the options for this.

    Read the Documentation!

    If I understand you correctly and you want to install a physical disk partition and not a virtual hard drive, then after initially creating the VM void then the change settings by deleting the existing virtual hard drive and add a hard drive by selecting "Use a disk (for advanced users)", which BTW I don't consider you one since to couldn't understand it yourself.  That said, what's not in the documentation is that if your host operating system is Windows 7 and Windows 8, you won't be able to use a physical partition that is located on the same drive, the host operating system is probably installed.  It must be one disk/partition physical separate other then what Windows 7 is installed on.  (That's assuming you are starting Windows 7/8).

  • Impossible to reinstall Vista on a new hard disk for Pavilion dv9700t


    Recently, the hard drive on my Pavilion dv9700t (p / n: KL086AV) began to fail.  So I bought a new hard drive and created the recovery disc (I didn't realize that I had to their creation until now, but I got lucky and my computer handed her long enough to do so).

    However, when I installed the new hard drive and tried to launch the recovery discs, I received the message, "this PC is not supported by system recovery disks.  You can continue to recover this system with these discs. »

    I have vista 32 bit, my old hard drive was 320 GB and a new one, I bought is a Seagate 500 GB.

    Through researching this problem, I came across different answers.  Some say that the size of the hard drive must be the same, others say recovery discs do not work on a new drive hard unless a special action is taken by a technician, and some say that there is no problem at all.

    I can't find any consistent information on this problem.  All the tips, I would much appretiate.  Thank you in advance!


    Sometimes the discs just do not work.

    I have not met a problem where if you have a bigger drive they don't work, but if you get a smaller drive as an SSD, so it's almost a sure bet that they do not work.

    As I see it, you have two choices: buy a set of HP recovery disks, if they are available and hope they work.

    Or if you can read your Vista product key on the sticker COST MS 25 characters on the bottom of your PC, you can make your own Vista installation disc.

    If you are in a fault light but rewarding you can do yourself if you can read your product key of Vista on the PC of 25 characters.

    You just download the 3 files you need on the link below and read all the instructions to create a Setup bootable DVD disk using imageburn.

    Do not take into account the part of the text in the first screen shot about "extract the files in the folder of Vista."

    The files were extracted already in this folder when you ran the X14.exe file by reading the text on top of the first screenshot.

    The other thing I noticed is on the 4th page, where it shows Developer ID Microsoft Corporation. I had to type Microsoft Corporation in me, and then other codes already filled in.

    When I went to compile the ISO file, ImageBurn gave a message on a WIM file, file and ISO, and if I wanted to burn it in a different format.

    I selected no, make the ISO file.

    It was not so hard to do. I burned both the disk of 64-bit and 32-bit disk in case I ever need them.

    I tested both of them one my hp dc7100 CMT desktop PC, worked flawlessly.

    When you enter the product key, he knows which version of Vista you have.

    After you install Vista successfully, you can then install the drivers for your PC and driver page support.


  • Headphone Jack does not not after the installation of the hard disk. Inspiron N7110

    Taken helmet dell inspiron N7110 does not work after that I installed a new hard drive on laptop of husbands. The speakers of the laptop work. When I plug in headphones or external speakers, the sound continues to fate of the speakers of the laptop.

    I went to the Device Manager and there is no yellow triangles.

    Audio device on the laptop troubled Manager are:
    1 device HD Audio
    2 device HD Audio

    Device Manager on MY sound inspiron:
    1 Bluetooth
    2 Intel display Audio
    3. Realtek HD Audio

    I tried the Dell drivers to update, but it still does not work.
    I have a driver disc and the utilities provided with the laptop.
    Don't know if I can find the solution on disk

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello. The list in Device Manager 2 computers if they are different, it is because your supplier (manufacturer) has drivers installed, but doesn't your husband - he uses native Windows (by default) drivers. To install drivers sellers use the disc that came with the laptop, or go to the Inspiron 17R 7110 html page to see links to all the drivers for Dell provided for this model. I mean all for different versions of Windows which takes in charge of Dell on this model, and the various versions of pilot, later and older.

    Because you were watching from a blank hard disk, you must install these drivers in this order.

    1 Dell System Software - find on the page html under the category: System utilities. It is available only if the laptop is running Win 7 32-bit or 64-bit.

    2 Intel HM67 Chipset drivers, under the category: Chipset. Available for Vista, 7, or 8.

    3 of card reader Realtek driver, under the category: Chipset. Available for Vista, 7, or 8.

    4. audio Realtek driver, under the category: Audio. After his laptop computer installation of your husband will show Realtek High Definition Audio Device in Device Manager.

    5 Intel 3000 or Graphics 2000/3000 under the category: video. After his laptop computer installation of your husband will show Intel display Audio in Device Manager. Intel display Audio's HDMI audio driver when you connect to a TV with an hdmi cable.

    6. some laptops have a second graphic device that takes over from the Intel graphics card during graphics intensive games like situations. If computer laptop your husband has this feature, then get the driver nVidia too.

    Most of the other devices will agree with it Windows native drivers for now, and you can install them later in an order any if you need.

    When I plug in headphones or external speakers, the sound continues to fate of the speakers of the laptop.

    I don't know if installing drivers will fix this or not. The headset should work fine now with just the native Windows driver. Install the drivers and see what happens. If you need more information, mention the operating system and possibly the model of your laptop and its operating system.

  • Replacement hard disk for Pavilion a1410n.

    I have Pavilion a1410n desktop. Only the changes that has been done is upgrading the memory to 3 GB.

    The hard drive in the computer, which is a 200 GB (SATA) has been restored several times, which does not give me much space left. I am wanting to replace the hard drive with a larger. What is the most important I can go with, without causing a lot of problems? Can I put a 500 GB or more of this computer?

    I have the restore disc that I ordered for this return of the computer when I bought it. So, I would not have problems with drivers and others. Am I right in assuming that if I leave the restore disc to do their work, it configures the disk partitions and all?

    Please can someone answer back me as soon as possible. I need to return this computer running as soon as possible.


    I don't know the answer to your questions, except to say that no hard drive (at least in Windows Help) has never its total size available.  And the larger the hard drive, there seems to be a larger piece of unusable space.

    Of what you have said, you still have a lot of free space available. Once your hard drive becomes 60-70% full, then it's time to look for a bigger.

    In addition, please note that if you do not install a bigger hard drive, you will not be able to put the partition recovery on it.

    Another idea for you would be to install a new drive hard more to one that you have and use it to store your files, music, photos, etc on, and you can continue your the original one for the OS and programs.

    You will need to make sure that if you do that, you buy a hard drive which comes with a cable SATA data.

    There should be another SATA power cable to hang it, and you would plug the data cable into the SATA port labeled SATA1.

    Just make sure you have a player available to install and screw location or what is needed to mount the drive inside the enclosure.

    To help you do this, I enclose the link to your guide of upgrade and maintenance, which will give you step by step instructions on how to open the case and install the various components, including hard drives.


  • Replacement of the hard disk for Equium A60-155

    I need to replace the hard drive in my equium A60-155. I need to know what is compatible with this model and if the brand of the drive is important in compatibility. For example should be a drive hard toshiba or is it possible to others.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    You n t need to install a HDD in particular of Toshiba. You can also use disk of another company.

    It is important that you use a HARD drive with support for hardware specifications.

    I found these useful discussions on the replacement of the HDD on the Satellite and Equium A60:

    Satellite A60 is very similar to the A60 Equium and so the two series use the same hard disks

  • Problem adding a hard disk for Pavilion Elite HPE - 380 t


    I am trying to replace my existing drive with a new WD 1 TB hard drive. So I intend to install the new WD drive as the 2nd drive, and then run the utility WD Acronis to clone the original to the new drive.

    However, when I install the new disk, the BIOS recognizes it, but I think it appears in Windows 7 such as D drive, but it does not work. When I run Acronis, he says that it doesn't detect any WD drive.

    I went into the BIOS and ran the test drive / self-test and it passed.

    I noticed that the SATA1 controller is enabled. He didn't check before installing the drive.

    The controller SATA1 mode is RAID. Not sure that it was previously.

    Oh, and I plugged the new drive SATA cable into the connector of the motherboard directly next to the SATA connector as my original drive.

    Everyone through this? Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,


    You are right. It was the answer, sort of. When I started Windows 7, I went in the new disk drives and active management. I let the system assign drive letters. I then rebooted.

    Then when I came back to Windows, I was able to run the original utility WD Acronis True Image to clone my source drive to the new drive. When finished, stop the system, removed my original drive and the new drive my only drive.

    Everything works beautifully. I managed to replace my hard drive.

    Thanks for the tip.
