What is the location of the product on my hard drive id?

My computer is wobbly, and I can't run windows on it right now. So I'm running ubuntu on it from a flash drive. In order to use the online chat to get technical support for my problem, however, I need the product id. There are instructions on searching for it, but they onl possible if you use windows, I'm not. I can still access all the files on my hard drive, I can't use windows to do.

So my question is: where on my hard drive is the product id?

There is no readable hard disk form. It is in an encrypted form in the registry, or on a sticker on the computer/CD case.

  • What is the maximum size of hard drive, which can be installed in a pavilion d4790y desktop computer?

    What is the maximum size of hard drive, which can be installed in a desktop pavilion d4790y?

    It would be a secondary drive, not the boot drive.

    The operating system is Vista Home Premium, 32-bit.  The version of the BIOS is 5.08.

    Are there any changes or upgrades that would allow an internal hard drive 3 TB to install?

    Here are the specifications and configurable options for your desktop HP Pavilion d4790y and here are the specifications of its card mother P5BW - THE (Basswood2). Based on the specifications and the age of the computer, I would expect you to use a hard drive 3 TB as a secondary drive on Windows Vista (DISPLACEMENT SP1 or SP2) and Windows 7. Formatted as MBR would require the drive to use with a minimum of two partitions. Formatted as GPT would require only a single partition. In no case will you be able to use the 3 TB as a boot device drive because your computer does not support a UEFI BIOS that allows booting from a GPT formatted disk. No changes or updated should be held.

  • Equium L20-197 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive

    Hi all

    I recently bought an Equium L20-197 and I thought to install a larger HARD drive.
    I wanted to know what the maximum size of HARD drive that can be installed on an Equium L20-197 (I guess it's 120 GB, as it is on the L20-187 but I'm not 100% sure)

    I have also been seaching for the IDE drives and found a list of sites who have PATA, ATA100 etc. are also the IDE drives? (I checked the wiki and articles all point Yes, but a little more confirmation would not hurt)

    I was also wondering if the HARD drive I install must be brand toshiba (or if it even makes a difference).

    Thanking you in advance for any help you can provide.


    Equium L20 is very similar to the Satellite L20.
    Search here in the forum for similar issues. If you want to use the advanced search option, you will find a few useful headings.

    I know, it's that you can use the 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB and 100 GB 2.5 IDE HARD drive supporting the UDMA100

  • HP 14-r025tx: what is the maximum size of hard drive I can replace my default one? & other hard disk performance issue

    My default hard disk is almost full and I plan to update. What is the maximum size that this model could overcome? Very well is 2-3 to?

    Another question.

    I replaced my optical drive to a box with a 250 GB SSD HARD drive inside. I installed my new operating system here, and makes the default boot drive. The default value of HARD drive that comes with the laptop is my backup drive. This is configured by okay?


    Do I have to put my SSD on the default HARD drive space and put my 2 to/3 TB harddrive on the caddy for maximum performance?


    1. in theory, you can get 2 TB or TB but 1 TB has better peformance.

    2. you cannot boot from the caddy. My suggestion: use for normal Bay and 2 TB SSDS in the caddy. You both what you want.

    3. as (2) above.

    Kind regards.

  • What is the maximum size of HARD drive, I use in my dc7600 CMT

    I use a HP dc7600 CMT, which works well after the upgrade to a Samsung 128 GB SSD Intel Pentium D 3.4 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon HD 6450. I'm under Win 8.1 Pro x 64, with the most recent upgrade and have absolutely no problem. Now, I want to add a second internal HDD and I wonder what is the maximum size that I can go to. I can't go up to 2 TB, or am I limited to a lower number? 1 TB? 500 GB? 250 GB?

    Will be happy to help here, especially if he actually tried to apply in practice.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards


    In theory, you'd be limited to 2 TB.

    The biggest HARD drive I have ever installed in my dc7600 CMT was a 1 TB of HDD, so I can't confirm that a 2 TB drive will absolutely work.

  • Satellite 2400-103 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive?

    Hi all.
    New here.

    Nobody knows what the maximum hard disk size is for a Satellite 2400-103? This laptop has a 30GB HARD drive which is complete at the moment and I'm moving to a 160 GB unit.

    Used software - DiskCopy - clone Moose 30 GB of cloning to the new 160 GB drive. This creates a partition on the disk that is the same size as the original (about 28GB). If the new hard drive is installed on the laptop at this point, the laptop will be start OK. If I use a partition manager - Partition Magic - to resize the partition to the size of the new disc (about 150 GB) then the laptop does not start.

    Would it because there is a limit on the size of the hard disk supported by this laptop?
    If so, what is the limit?

    Thank you and best regards.



    Satellite 2400 is very old notebook, so I think it has a limitation of LBA 28 bits. This means that you can only use up to 128 GB of free space so the maximum capacity of the disc HARD would be 120 GB. So I think that's the reason why the computer laptop can-t start successfully with the 160 GB model.

    In your case I bring back the 160 GB model to the computer store and ask one another 120 GB one. It should work normally

  • Satellite Pro 4600 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive?

    My age Satellite Pro 4600 has a 20 GB HARD drive. These are now very difficult to obtain, does anyone know if superior capacy HDDs can be used and, if so, what is the maximum size of the HARD drive.

    (Despite his age that I always use the Satellite Pro for some jobs).

    Hello John

    Satellite Pro 4600 is old enough for laptop and it is not easy to find the exact info. The fact is that this laptop comes with 10 and 20 GB hard drives.
    My opinion is that you can use 30 or even 40 GB HDD. I think that 30 GB new HARD drive should be enough for your some jobs.

    What do you think?

  • What is the function of password HARD drive physically?

    Acer Aspire E3

    I put a password on the HARD drive in the BIOS, and I see that it is opposed to access F12 boot without the password menu, thus preventing boot from somwething like a Linux Live CD (good!).

    My question is, in addition to password lock the normal startup process and the F12 function, the drive password HARD does nothing else, as for example the encryption of disk?

    Nope no encryption with just a HARD drive password.

    what you have found what is a HARD drive password, do nothing else.

  • Satellite L40 - what is the maximum size of HARD drive?

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L40, model number PSL4CL - 001 with 80 GB HDD (SATA) 00C. I need to buy a new bigger hard drive, but I don't know the maximum size that I can use my laptop?

    Can I get a new one with 500 GB or I shouldn't buy one more 250 or 320 GB?


    Theoretically, you can buy each HARD drive you want. Your laptop is equipped with a SATA interface for HARD disk and there is no limit of capacity as on the old IDE interface. So, a 500 GB model should work correctly on your laptop.

    If you buy a new one make sure that it s a portable 2.5 HARD drive with SATA interface. All that s! :)

    I hope I could help a bit.

    Good bye

  • Satellite 2610 CDT: what is the maximum capacity of hard drive?


    I want to add a new hard drive to an old laptop Satellite 2610 CDT. However, before buying a new drive, I want to be sure that it will be properly recognized by the BIOS. The operating systems (Win 2000 and Debian) I will use can handle large capacity disks, so that they are not a problem here.

    How can I determine the maximum capacity of the hard drive that will be recognized by the BIOS? The BIOS supports LBA-48 address?

    Thank you very much!

    According to the specifications of the laptop computer supports a 6 GB HARD drive.
    You can try with 10 or 12 GB of HARD drive.

    These hard drives are cheap and I don't see any risk with the upgrade. Test it!
