Pavilion series P6000: Configure the new HARD drive.

I install a new Seagate 1 TB HARD drive in a Pavilion P6620F.  What I need to clone new HARD drive or just run the recovery discs?


It all depends of what your intentions are.

You are replacing the original disk or adding storage space?

The simplest method would be to clone the current to the new hard drive, when you replace the original hard drive. Install the drive cloned in the same place where the Moose an and with the same connectors.  Start the PC and everything should be STATED as it was before, except that it will be on a new hard drive.

If you add a drive for extra storage of storage, it is simply a matter of conecting a sata conector between unused hard drive and a sata header and connect a power connector from the hard drive.

Once it is done, turn on the PC and log in to Windows.

Use Windows Explorer to create up to four partitions and then format the partitions.  I am unware of how space exists in the case ATX mid for additional disks.

  • Windows Setup could not configure Windows on hardware of this computer Installation error on the new hard drive

    Okay so if please bear with me and be patient.  I'm not tech savvy.  I know enough to be able to remove an old hard drive and put another one, but when there are errors, I don't know what to do.

    Here's the situation.

    I have a Dell Studio XPS with Windows 7 installed.  I started having these notifications that my hard drive could be a failure.  I tried everything that I could find to fix it without having to buy a new HARD drive without success.  The current system has a 1 TB Seagate hard drive.  I installed a memory additional bar thingie right after that I got the computer about 4 years ago.  (If someone tells me how to find the properties of real system, I post them if necessary).  Anyway, I bought a new WD 1 TB black disk hard to install before my old dies and loses all my photos and documents, etc...

    I took the old drive yesterday and installed the new hard drive.  I put back the case and turned on the machine.  I put in my Windows 7 installation disc.  He began installing Windows 7... It's completely past the initial screen where it says it to load it and the other... I had accepted the license agreement, but did not have to make a profile and do the work and the reader.  I hope all this makes sense.  Then it pops up this message "installing Windows could not set up Windows on hardware on this computer."  I couldn't figure out what to do from there.  I got the new drive and put the old one back to and here I am. I tried to find solutions to this problem, but I either don't can't make heads or tails out of the responses on the internet or the solution is not exactly my problem.

    Please help if you can!  And if you have any suggestions, please dumb them down so I can understand what to do.  I CAN do if loaded, you just have to not talk too irritable.  Laughing out loud

    Thank you in advance!

    Maybe not...

    The Windows installation is not happy about something, and since it gets at least started which is a good thing, but your installation problem can not really be with Windows - perhaps something about Dell hardware or your 1 TB HARD drive.

    I looked at your system and found this article that you can read to see if it sounds like your original question:

    Windows Setup could not configure Windows on hardware on this computer.

    Since Dell has written an article for help on this subject, it means they've met enough times to take the time to compose the article and put it on their WWW site (but, they say, it is a possible resolution).

    Could you take the issue in the Dell online community where experts hang out (especially your amber light).

    Another good place for support is where there is a similar topic as your question (except Vista) on a Dell and a new disk of 1 TB (also a Seagate) and Dell ideas did not work, but someone else has found a way to fix it:

    The bleepingcomputer for your error message search reveals other areas and people who have got things to work in different ways, then it is perhaps another place to look for ideas.

    If the installation still fails it would not hurt to do the BIOS setting and see if things are getting longer, and since you are going to write the current settings before proceeding with the adjustment you can always cancel the adjustment if things get worse.

  • HP Pavilion DV6-6c35dx: potential problems with OS driver install the new hard drive?

    I want to spend the hard drive of my laptop, but my laptop did not come with recovery discs. I buy a full copy of Windows 7 Professional, but I did save it... because when everything has failed, I guess. If I'm able to reinstall Win 7 Home or if I have to install Win 7 Pro, how can I be sure to reinstall all drivers HP (p. ex., trackpad, meaning cool, beats audio, etc.) for my machine? It is best to download the drivers before you install the new hard drive and have them ready on a flash drive. or is there an easier way? Thank you.

    I personally prefer the new OEM installation & then get required drivers to download for HP support for your laptop model.

    It is slower and more difficult to do if it is not too well known, but the end result is much better.

    If your system has flaws you should try to fix first, but better long-term results come from clean install generally.

  • Satellite M45 - does not start after restoration on the new HARD drive

    I installed a new PATA 250 GB HDD on my pc. The BIOS is configured to boot from CD/DVD. Toshiba Recovery disk started cold, start follow-up statement to load a new system on the HARD drive. He made a (quick) format on the HARD drive, spent 50 minutes, copy the files from the CD to the new HARD drive. Followed the instructions to remove the CD and reboot the pc. Did. I get the Toshiba homepage for 2-3 seconds, and then I get a white screen with a white block cursor in the upper corner of the LH of the screen. Looks like it does not find the block on the HARD disk?
    The procedure of collection 3 times with the same results. Checked the BIOS to check that it is configured to boot from the HARD disk after installation.

    The recovery CD is blank. Never used because I bought the PC (3.5 years). Put the new HARD drive in a USB enclosure and formatted with Windows, tried again with the same result? Put the old HDD, PC starts and works very well. Put the live CD Knoppix and boot from that, works very well. See the new HARD drive.

    Thus, any suggestions are appreciated. The recovery CD Toshiba is defective? In any case to test?

    Thank you


    Sounds like a problem with the recovery disk or the new HARD disk if your computer starts up fine with the old HARD drive...

    In your case before you start a lengthy discussion, you should try a Microsoft Windows disk to install Windows. If he work it seems that only the recovery disk is defective.

    Otherwise, the HARD disk must be defective. Maybe a bad sector or something else

    Hello, everyone.

    I have a laptop HP (pavilion dv7-1245dx) and the hard drive is dead. I had never gotten to burn my recovery disks, so I ordered new ones from HP. When I installed the new hard drive and popped in the disk to reinstall the operating system, it gave me the error message:

    EDIT: Trying to recover a Vista operating system

    For anyone who has the same problem, I found a solution. I cloned the original hard drive using the Clonezilla fallback option. After using Clonezilla to image on the new hard disk, the partition which held that most of the data of the laptop is not mountable, however the partition containing the restore partition was a perfect copy. I turned on the computer, hit escape to access the menu (for a list of options such as boot order, etc, which included an option for recovery), and then choose recovery option. While the recovery discs, I received from HP refused to work with the new hard drive, the Vista restored cloned recovery partition without flaw.

  • Correct installation of the new hard drive for Windows 7

    Have a disk hard fatal crash with Dell OEM Windows 7on, so I bought a new hard drive compatible system and have my old system Win 7/recovery of data on a memory stick. It's been years that last I formatted, partitioned and installed an operating system on a new hard drive and I totally forgot how it's done. Vaguely remember some DOS commands were required to work out of BIOS (?). Can anyone list the individual measures to be taken, assuming that the hard drive is physically installed and turned on? It would be a great help!

    Unless this stick memory has on her installation files as well, you cannot reinstall win7 on the new hard drive

    You will need the DVD / or the ISO of Win7.


    And no you do not need BACK. Just the dvd or ISO / to boot from. Then you can format / partition in the configuration screen

  • Windows 7 OEM license, cloned the new hard drive.

    I'm scratching my head on this one.

    I'm running Windows 7 Pro with an OEM license.

    Beyond December, my original hard drive started failing so I made a clone of Clonezilla and transferred to a new hard drive.  Since then, I have not been able to run Windows update and I regularly get a Windows is not real popup.  I checked the section properties and my computer Windows Activation of Windows is enabled.  I tried the site of verification but that sends me to a web page that does not seem to load correctly and 9/10 times.  When I managed to load and I downloaded the WindowsActivationUpdate tool, it gives me just a Setup 0xC8000247 error.  I tried returning my SLUI 3 product key and everything went through fine.  I checked various websites and people say that it must be good using a new hard drive, others say you can't and others are calling saying Microsoft and speak to someone.

    Can I use my OEM license when transferring to a new hard drive?  Answer, what would be the next step?

    Yes, you can use the same OEM license, because it's the same computer.

    What you need to do is probably performing a new installation. Clone software tends not to provide the best results.

    The old hard drive still works? You might try one last time to create a system image and restore it on the new hard drive:

    How to pass Windows 7 to a bigger hard drive - books...

    This of course would mean reinstall the old hard drive, create a system image and then restore it on the hard drive.

    Another option is to perform a new installation using the OEM key.

    Step 1: Download a copy of Windows 7:

    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

    Given that this option is no longer available, what are your options? See the article for more details:

    How to: What are my options for Windows 7 reinstall media?

    Make sure you scroll down and read the section:

    What to do if you cannot get your manufacturer recovery media, refuse to use or to buy it or the Microsoft Software Recovery Website does not work?

    Step 2: Perform a custom installation, see Windows 7 section of the following article how to perform a custom installation:

    How to: perform a customized Windows installation

    Hello Hirroshi, it seems that drives hard very little HP only work in an HP computer, or so I said. I think it has to do with some code that HP puts in the Master Boot Record, but that's just a guess. I read on the Forum that this is the case.

    I suggest that you delete the partition on the replacement hard drive, and then create a new partition and format the hard drive. You should be able to use the recovery disk, if they are not damaged and that you have a valid burn.

    You can try to install the replacement hard drive in the system you propose, and it can work very well. It's certainly worth a try.

    Here is a link that shows how to perform a recovery facility when a hard drive is replaced.

  • Satellite 1800-712 does not start with the new HARD drive

    Hello world.

    I am currently trying to install a new HARD drive in my notebook of 1800-712.
    I'm having a few trubbles as my Satellite won't start with my new HARD drive.

    I upgraded my BIOS to the latest version.
    The new HARD drive is a 40 GB Samsung.

    Any suggestions on what I need to do to make it all works?

    THX, Philippe


    This device was shipped with 20 GB HARD drive.
    You again is 40 GB.
    I guess that the BIOS does not recognize the HARD drive because of the size.

  • Portege Z830 - where can I get the new HARD drive


    I have problem with my toshiba portege z830 ultrabook.
    My HARD drive died, and I don't know where I can get the new HARD drive.

    I've got guaranteed but I am forgotten registered my cell phone before when I went for repairs not authorized, because my first problem was with the motherboard.

    This motherboard has been replaced for new ones.
    If my warranty is maybe cancelled.

    Well, that's my problem to another.

    What should I do?
    Please help me. I am available to do anything.


    I think that you should first check if your warranty is still valid.
    This can be checked on Toshiba Unitdetails page:

    Where the warranty is valid, get in touch with maintainer authorized Toshiba in your country for replacement.

    But as far as I know the Portege Z830 was equipped with an mSATA SSD drive.
    This means that the laptop doesn't support HDD 2.5 common but requires special mSATA SSD drive module.

    In case your warranty is not valid, you will pay for a new mSATA module.
    Replacement should do a service provider authorized Toshiba as well because this replacement is a little tricky on this model of laptop.
