My computor died but the hardrive (Barracuda) survived. I got an old Acer Veriton 7600G without harddrive from my employer. The Acer comp dont accept the old Barracuda hardrive and its genuine XP Pro. What can I do to make them cooperate?
My old computor is burnt except for the harddrive!
I got a another one, an older Acer without harddrive.
I put it in but i couldnt get theAcer bios/motherboard to accept the old Barracuda hd.
I'd like som suggestions how to manage this. The Acer motherboard : Manufacturer: Microstar - MSI, Model: MS-6772 dont let me start Windows so I dont even get BSODs. It sais in the upstart sekvence that the bios only works with Acer. Somebody must have run into this before, and found a way round it.
yes its possible. I have been there and made some changes. However it seems as even if the right harddrive is registered there is something stopping the OS from taking over. I guess Acer have put some extra controls.....
Do u have any suggestions of what to change....
I have tried the instal XP cd... (without going through with it) in the Acer and I have also had the barracuda going by Usb hard disk link to bu all its content without problems so I concludeded that the disk is ok.
