I have downloaded the most up to date BIOS but it will probably not
recognise the complete drive.
If it does not, what is best procedure?
If I partition into several drives, even these may not be seen?
I understand that there may be a problem with the "sleep" function on
Is there overlay software that might work with this computer?
Sorry - Lot's of questions, but I don't want to buy a drive and then find it
Let's say I do buy it and can't get it working - If I buy a USB external
case and format the drive on another computer, will laptop likely see it on
