Tecra 9100 - which HARD drive is bigger than I can use?


I just bought a second hand Tecra 9100 with a 40 GB HDD (not yet received but it is in transit).
I would like to exchange the hard disk and put a bigger but in one I was wondering.

What is the largest disk in the BIOS will support?

Thank you

  • Re: Tecra 9100 - new HARD drive is not detected

    I have a Toshiba Harddisk provide a Tecra 9100. Checking the BIOS it shows "Enhanced IDE", but you are trying to boot from the disc does not work HARD. Even trying to install a new operating system present, that the HARD drive is not detected.
    From the laptop is also very long.
    Any idea?

    Your new HARD drive is larger than 120 GB? The HARD disk controller supports the 28-bit LBA and large drives as 120 GB will not be recognized by the BIOS.

    What you mean with Enhanced IDE? The BIOS recognizes the new HARD drive with model number?

  • Tecra 9100 unrecognized hard drive

    If I replace the hard drive in my tosh bios indicates no hard disk is installed.
    The new hard drive is MK2016GAP I tried with and without the master/slave relationship.



    The MK2016GAP is a 20 GB HARD drive.
    I searched the Internet for the Tecra 9100 and discovered that the phone comes with 40 GB or 60 GB HARD drive.
    BIOS shouldn't t so no problem with the size of the HARD drive. The size of the HARD drive is certainly supported.

    So I think it's a problem of jumper or you did not connect the disk HARD corectly.
    I put t know how the jumper was set to your old HDD, but you should check the position of the jumper and put it also on the new HARD drive.

  • "this computer's hard drive is smaller than the original hard drive shipped.

    Computer model: p7-1058uk Hi, I'm trying to reinstall my windows recovery kit 7 I bought from best2serve my OCZ Vertex 60 GB ssd Series 3. But I get this error message "this computer's hard drive is smaller than the original supplied hard disk. The recovery process cannot continue"I actually managed to install this recovery on the same front drive kit when I bought first. Any ideas as to why its not working now? I have formatted the ssd drive, deleted the partition and creates a new one with a program called gparted. I can't access my computer until I can reinstall this recovery again kit. Thank you


    I'm surprised that the same recovery disks set worked the first time.  Unfortunately, the error you are getting is the norm. I don't know any solution other than to get a bigger hard drive to the approximate size as the original.

    I have a solution for you if you want to use...

    If you can read the product key 25 character Windows 7 on the sticker COST Microsoft on your PC, you can download single files Windows 7 ISO to burn it to a DVD for the version of windows (Pro, home) that is installed on your PC, and which is listed on the sticker COST Microsoft on the PC.

    You must also select the language installation provided with your PC, or the product key will not work.

    Burn the ISO with the option to burn the ISO on your DVD burning program and burn it at the slowest possible speed that will allow your program.

    Use the 25-character product key to activate the installation. It's good for the 32-bit or 64-bit version of W7.

    Then go to the support page and drivers for your PC install the drivers you need.

    Link to downloads ISO of W7 is below.



  • Tecra A6 (PTA60E) - hard drives are compatible

    I corrupted hard drive 100 GB Hitachi in my Tecra A6 I want to replace. Are there limitations in the Bios on the drives, I can use as a replacement. I am aware of the limits of size and interface, but I wonder if there is no limitation in the Bios, and if so, if the impact of these limitations only translates into a lower capacity hard disk than expected in drive standard.

    Thank you



    Tecra A6 und SATA HDD HARD drive controller support 2.5 SATA there.
    Since the SATA interface is not limited to certain sizes of HARD drive, you should be able to use any HARD drive 2.5 SATA.

    I doubt THAT BIOS is limited, so I would say that you can also use larger SATA hard drives


  • Which hard drive buy for my laptop Toshiba Satellite 15.6 "3 GB HD 320?

    After receiving an error of 10-FA12 - 054D and do not recover my laptop to zone out, I believe that I have to buy a new hard drive.

    Which hard drive buy for my laptop Toshiba Satellite 15.6 "3 GB HD 320?

    You can check the Toshiba site for which specifications you need.  A general rule is to buy something at least two times greater than the one that failed, because the data use and therefore the space doubles every 18 months.

    You may want to consider a large enough to allow you to make backups and store in another partition

  • How do I know which hard drive contains the operating system in the Hp Pavilion dv7-4069wm? The upgrade.

    I think the upgrade of one of my hard drives (ea 320) in my HP Pavilion laptop dv7-4069wm for more storage.  I like to keep the drive that contains the operating system to avoid the hassle to make a copy, but I'm not sure which one that is. I have not replaced a hard drive before, and still less a double disc. Recently, I added more RAM and noticed that both hard drives looked the same. Can someone tell me how to know the difference?

  • Hard drive does not start after the use of the recovery on USB Manager

    The hard drive on HP G62t - 350 CTO Notebook to my newphew failed. I could create a USB recovery in the Recovery Manager. I installed a new 120 GB SSD. The original hard drive was bigger, do not remember now but 250 or 500 GB. I know that the recover the system after the hard is replaced (Windows 7) said "to avoid problems, install a hard drive as big or bigger than the replaced hard disk", but that's a question for later.

    Computer started fine of USB (in fact, is set to boot from USB if present by default). Recovery Manager starts. I choose minimum installation. He goes through the process of partitioning the SSD and copying files. Said so to remove the external media and restart, the computer will restart several times during the process, blah, blah, blah. I get out of USB and restarted, but after POST I get "no bootable media present.

    If I try to reboot, leaving the USB in, it starts in USB and that we are at the beginning. I am able to confirm with a rescue disk, the SSD has an NTFS partition that had Windows files copied to it and a large amount of unallocated space. (Something like 60% / 40%).


    1. How make bootable hard drive for, and if it was bootable, recovery processes complete?
    2. What is happening with the partitions? He creates the partition recovery first, and then after the start, the recovery partition installs the operating system? If so, I might have to give up this process because since I'm moving to smaller storage, I don't want to devote half of the drive to a recovery partition.
    3. Official recovery media help? A technician told me that he would do so, but couldn't explain to my satisfaction why the USB I created with Recovery Manager does not work, so I'm suspicious of the assertion that the media created by HP as opposed to media created by me using the own HP software would be better, and since the computer is under warranty I don't want to spend $30 + to find out.

    Most of the people who have installed an SSD that was smaller than the reader of the factory were unable to use any medium recovery HP with the SSD.

  • my laptop is dying, I can move my hard drive to another computer and still use vista coa?

    my laptop is dying, I can move my hard drive to another computer and still use vista coa?


    It depends on the type of license you have, as to whether you can transfer it or not.

    Pre-installed Licenses OEM (HP, Acer, etc.) and the Microsoft System Builder OEM licenses are tied to the first machine that they are installed on and channels of license when this machine dies.

    OEM licenses are not transferable.

    If you have purchased your own license for sale retail of Windows and installed yourself, yes you can transfer it to another computer.

    Retail licenses are transferable.

    Just be sure that you have only installed on one machine at a time.

    A single license means one Installation.

    And if it is retail and transfer you, in all likelihood will have to reinstall the operating system, as this disc hard the 'old' aura card mother drivers installed, which will cause starting problems.

    See you soon.

    No, at least not by us.

    Open a hard drive for some reason any at all can be done in special
    laboratory as parameters. Something else will destroy the disk.

    There are companies trying to recover data from broken disks,
    and they are sometimes successful. And who knows, maybe they
    sometimes use methods such as what you describe.

    But if you plan to use such a company, know what they
    are all very expensive. It does not for most people.

    For the future, if you have files you want to be sure are not
    lost, make sure to have in place a backup procedure on a regular basis the
    external media player.

    "If the corrupted hard drive will be the OS can be installed again"

    If the hard drive has minimal corruption in localized areas, you can reinstall Windows.  You will need to reformat the hard drive, however.  When you get to step in the installation process where it formats the hard drive, do not choose "quick" format  On the contrary, let him do a full format.
