ok, another thing 🙂 I noticed I have 39 pin, would I need the 40 pin, as I read somewhere
ok, no it's not installed, do I boot up with the disk in it........I'm getting : Diskette drive 0 seek failure, and, Strike F1 to retry boot
Sorry for all the dumb questions
Have you installed the 'old' hard drive you are cloning from, as the 'Master', this needs to be connected to the end of primary IDE data cable and then see if the computer will boot from it!
Regards to the 'Diskette drive 0 seek failure', if there's no floppy drive installed, check in the system setup, to see if the Diskette Drive is set to 'Not Installed'.
I'm sorry Bev,
Sorry for being a pain and making you repeat yourself so often.
Didn't want to post over there. This will be the last time I attempt to do something like this, and I'm very close to stopping this one. I guess it would be like a guy without flying lessons, trying to fly a plane 🙂
After figuring out some of the other problems, thanks to you, I have now installed Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 and it looks as if it is moving my old drive to the new, looks like this will take a while, at 7% and slow go 🙂
Appreciate all of your help. If I do get this done, it will be a HUGE accomplishment for me, think I will take a class some time very soon, as frustrating as it is, it is very interesting and I like it 🙂
Ok, the transfer took a couple of hrs, and after all that, seems to be running good. It still does have it's slow moments, as did the old drive, but not as bad, I guess it would be time to install some new RAM 🙂 Is there anything you think I should run or install, as far as drivers or anything to make it run better, or a good virus scan, I think we have a program called Paretologic running on it, what do you think of them? Anyway, besides that, everything is good, thanks again for all you help
You now have the new hard drive running as the primary C: / boot drive?
How much memory is installed?
Do you have a AGP video card installed, or using the integrated graphics?
Regards to Paretologic, I don't like it and never have used it.
Try using the seven tips listed HERE to make the 4600 run faster.
I'll look into all that stuff, thanks again
and to answer your questions, yes it is booting as my primary C and I installed 250gb
as far as the AGP video card, hmmm not sure, will have to look into that. For that computer, what would be a good
