Default Hard drive compatibility

Hi

Recently seen some articles about hard drives and wonder if anybody
can give me some advice on the problem I am currently encountering.
About 6 months ago, the original 6G HD in the 4270 failed and I
replaced it a new IBM Travelstar 20G. I managed to install WIN98SE in
it but not Win 2000 or Win XP. When installing Win 2000/XP, the screen
showed "hard drive fails" or something like "non-repairable error in
the hard disk". I didn't have the same problem before with my
original 6G HD. I am using a IBM Travelstar (Model: IC25N020ATCS04-0
4200RPM) with no setting on jumper. I would be glad if anybody have
any suggestion.

Regards,

Andy :cry:

I suppose the 4270 might be a Toshiba laptop, but then again it might not.
I would suggest you do a bit of a google to find out more on the machines
capabilities.
Could be the drive size is too big for the machine.
best wishes..OJ

It is completely possible what "old Jon" is saying. There also may be a new
bios file made for this motherboard that can be flashed to allow XP to see
the drive.
