Satellite 2450 - PXE error after upgrade of the 40 GB HARD drive

I have a Satellite 2450 and have just replaced my 30 GB drive with a 40 GB drive and trying to use the recovery disk, I get the error PXE.

I understand that I need to change the boot order of LAN, but when I have the power by pressing F12 it lets me select the CD/DVD drive, and then gives me the same error.

Any help is received with gratitude.



It seems that the CD/DVD drive cannot read the disc, and therefore the BIOS passes to LAN and try to boot from LAN.
In this case you will receive the error check cable PXE.

Did you check if you can use another bootable disk?
I mean you can try to install Windows using the Win XP disk
Maybe booting from another disc would work

    Is there a model A500 with 2 internal drives?


    You can check it on the Toshiba site in the specifications of the laptop if it s equipped ;) 2nd HARD drive

    But I checked the Toshiba Web site for you, and it seems that Satellite A500 isn't equipped with the 2nd HARD drive.
    If you want a 2nd HARD drive therefore use an external that you can connect via for example fast eSATA port.

  • Satellite A210-128: I want to change the 320 GB HARD drive 7200 RPM

    Hallo all

    Can someoane help me with this little problem?
    I have a portable satellite A210-128 with a hard drive of 250 G 4200 RPM (* slowest *)... I want to change the hard drive with a hdd 2.5 "Western Digital 320 G 7200 RPM (* speed *).

    1. If I buy a disk sata2 hard can I put on my laptop because my A210-128 has a disk sata hard?

    2 can I I install vista on this new hard drive on my vista dvd, im asking this because I want to be shor that my recovery dvd * RECOGNIZES THE NEW HARD drive * and I can install a new copy of windows or installing dvd can * only works with disk drives hard toshiba *... ???

    Thank you.

    As to the question;

    (1) I think a SATA2 HARD drive would go because the standard SATA2 is compatible to the bottom. But I assume that the system will operate as a good HDD SATA.

    (2) Yes, you can install vista using the Toshiba Recovery DVD. It shouldn't be a problem with a fresh install

  • The upgrade of the internal SATA HARD drive for HP Pavilion dm4


    I have the HP dm4 - 1150 bought ea I think in December 2004.  It has intel core i5 and 500 GB of HARD drive.

    It works very well.  I ben hae wanting to upgrade the HARD disk but hard drives SATA 2.5 inches for this ability were not available.

    drives internal SATA 2.5-inch 2 TB for laptops are now available.  The OEM version seems to be available for about £80 in the United Kingdom.  Has anyone successfully updated your laptop HARD drive?  Does anyone know if I buy and install the new 2 TB SATA HDD if it works.  If not why?

    Would appreciate a response from anyone who has tried this on dm4 or similar computers HP laptop

    Thank you

    If it's the original drive it is SATA-II as SATA-III was not then invented. Confirmed here:

    You can replace it with a SATA-III disc without any problems. They are perfectly backwards compatible. Your motherboard is a SATA-II at best and could even be SATA - I have but I do not.

    I avoid the biggest current disks because drive manufacturers must invent new technological tricks to squeeze more and more zeros and ones in the same size box and it takes time to work on the kinks. Right now, 1 TB is the sweet spot for the readers of the laptop and 2 TB or 3 for desktop drives. Stay with a 1 TB drive 7200 rpm or still a hybrid drive of 1 TB would not a bit of extra money.

    Hope that helps.

  • Upgrade of the T110 II hard drive space


    I have a T110 II with 2 x 500 GB RAID 1 (S100), so 1 TB in total, and I'm running out of disk space. I'm perfectly happy with the performance of the machine, but I would need to 4 TB RAID 0 (mirrored). The machine is running Windows SBS 2011 essentials.

    I'm a little reluctant to buy a new server and throw an old just because of disk space.

    All suggestions on the RAID controller, HDDs and upgrade procedure?

    Thank you.

    Yes, you can go for a 2 TB disks because 4 terabytes of disks are not supported on the S100 controller.

    So, do you think that RAID1 S100 performance would be acceptable? (We use the server in our small business as domain controller + network file server).

    There will be a significant reduction in read and write in RAID 1 performance because of the overhead caused by the parity and controls controls for purposes of redundancy.

    I mean, with RAID0 configuration file transfer is OK, but I have much degradation should I expect with RAID 1: more speed half or less?

    I can't for sure provide quantitative figure by which performance will be degraded. So that you will have good performance with RAID 0, you may lose your data when you have a failure of a single drive because there is no data redundancy is provided by RAID 1. Overall, the performance of the software base RAID controllers such as S100 is limited by its design. For best performance, I recommend upgrading to RAID as the H200 controllers based hardware.

    I hope that answers your question.

  • Low beginning on Satellite M40-145 after changing the 160 GB HARD drive


    I own a Satellite M40-145 since 2005. After more than two years without any problem, two weeks ago the 80 GB hard drive to the original address has been damaged. So I had to replace it with a new, 160 GB (this replacement was made in a store because it's out of warranty).

    I used successfully on the new HARD drive recovery CD to install Windows XP and all the drivers (just as when it was new).
    I used Partition Magic to create a partition of D for data. Also, I installed Office 2003, Norton 360 and connected to the Internet.
    It worked quickly with only small problems than perhaps with little patience I could fix: as this Bluetooth hardware is not detected and the wireless switch began with the lights off even being in the position we (it worked with new just switching out-lit again). But suddenly, after only one day of use, Windows starts became very slow. It takes about 4-5 minutes until it is possible to use the laptop.

    Now, I tried many possibilities to solve the problem, but always ending on the same problem: I used the recovery CD again and try to use the computer with or without updates (I thought that maybe the problem was due to a bad update), with and without Internet access, etc.
    I also tried in vain the program Microsoft Bootvis to try to speed up the startup, etc.

    I even created an image with Acronis to only with XP and Office running fast, so that I could install it again and try new things.
    I also tried to clean the registry with various programs like CCleaner, TuneUp 2008
    Also the defrag JKDefrag and PageDefrag. But always returning to the same problem after a few days of good conduct.

    I don't know what else I could do. I wonder if maybe the new HD is damaged (although I test and no error or no damage was detected) or if the update BIOS might resolve this problem (I'm not and that's a big risk).

    Please, could someone help me?
    Thank you very much for your attention.

    In my view, that there is nothing wrong with the software or all drivers on you laptop.
    I think the key is the enormous size of the HARD drive.

    The difference between 80 and 160 GB is huge.

    To my knowledge, the BIOS supports a limit on the size of HARD drive and I really wonder why the 160 GB HARD drive has been recognized by the BIOS.

    However, I think you should test a 100 GB, 120 GB HDD if the same question perhaps if poster using a HDD a size smaller.

    Best regards



    All the tests of hard drive was ok, PASS. Now how to fix error 3F0

    1. how to record data, if necessary,

    2. put it back to factory settings.

    Data recovery:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.


    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.


    Also ask them if it is possible to do the recovery disk/s since the Partition of recovery in case of hard drive failure or System Crash, when you are in service again.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, Acer, recovery disk/s etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    The 320 HDD on my C650D-112 18 months, failed last week.
    I replaced it with a 128 GB SSD and it now boots into Windows 8 preview in about 10 seconds!

    I have a copy of the disk HARD original including the recovery of HARD drive Partition, but no recovery disk.
    I can't reinstall drive would work I had been a responsible adult and created the disk when the laptop is new because the disk is smaller.

    > Is it possible to reinstall the original Windows 7 Home Premium operating system of the copy of the HARD drive recovery Partition?

    No, to my knowledge, this is not possible, even if you copy the contents of the recovery of HARD drive on the new partition on the new HARD drive, HARD drive recovery option does not appear in the advanced boot menu.
    So, it seems you need to order a new drive to get here:

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite L70-A-139 youcef.
    And at the back of the laptop, there is a cover that is fixed with a screw.

    Wil I void the warranty when I unscrew and take a look?
    I want to upgrade my HDD to SSD.
    The motherboard supports Sata III: D.

    Thank you!

    No, the mandate must still be valid.
    There is a removable cover at the bottom of the unit as shown here:
    [Toshiba Satellite C70 / C75 / C70D / C75D / L70 / L70t / S70 / HARD S70t drive replacement procedure |]

    Then you should be able to upgrade the RAM and HARD drive.
    I think this info should be mentioned in the user manual too.

  • Satellite M40X-112: can I use the 160 GB HARD drive

    I have a Satellite M40X-112 lapptop and I want to upgrade my 80 GB to 160 GB internal drive.
    How is know possible? (Toshiba hotline cannot give me an answer only that a 80 GB drive has been tried with these lapptop!). Anyone have experience with that?

    I read several statements here in the forum about HDD upgrade on the M40X and it seems that there is a limitation in the BIOS.
    The BISO will not recognize the 160 GB HARD drive and that is why you will be not possible to install an OS or you will not be able to boot from this device.

    Please use the "advanced search" from this forum to find discussions on upgrading the HARD drive.
