bchwlkr: What about grounding before opening your computer? Is that not important
anymore? Guy never mentioned it.
newmodeUS: LOL, yes i am. Are you based in US or pinas? It depends on the drive
manufacturer. 500GB (2.5" 9.5mm-high) is the largest you can place in right
now. With some 500GB drives, all you have to do is jumper the drive from
3.0Gb/s to 1.5Gb/s to make it work. On some, you have to use the new 500GB
in the primary HDD bay as the boot drive.
newmodeUS: you will see it in the "specifications" of the drive when shopping for one.
Right now, all 2.5" SATA drives are 9.5mm. It's only the new 1TB and 750GB
drives that are taller than 9.5mm and won't fit in your laptop
luismotavation: thanks man!
Jayy_760: How do I know which kind of hard drive will my laptop need? I have a HP
Pavilion Dv6000 series. I have 80 GB total. I want to get a higher one
which is a 320 GB. Please answer anyone.
Meteorix 69: how many GB this hard drive has?
Spyros Maniatopoulos: Can I also add SATA2 HDDs or are they different ? Is there a limit to the
HHD's speed - can I use both 5400 and 7200 RPM ? awesome video, thnx! :D
Pow3rbull: then, power your laptop off (after it finished) then, put in your xp disk,
and follow install instructions. then, once in xp, put in your drivers disk
and install your drivers. any problems? pm me on my youtube-account and ill
help you further.
newmodeUS: Thanks Efi4ltis! For most of the dv9000 series, you will have to slow a
3.0Gb/s SATA drive down to 1.5Gb/s.

aidyanimal: hi so underneith where the sd card slot is (left hand side of the comp) is

geodescent: I'm curious, if you move your single primary HD to the 2nd bay and install
a new, bigger HD in the primary bay, would you need to ghost/image the data
of your original drive into the new HD or can a dv9000 boot from the second
zenith828: How do i boot from the second harddrive bay?
ShiversandCo: Thanks I've followed your instructions. The drive I have installed is a
Hitachi 250GB Travelstar. Unfortunately the write speed is in the region of
kb/s not mb/s. How do I speed it up -- any ideas?
newmodeUS: Unless you order the laptop from HP with a 2nd hard drive, the 2nd hard
drive bay is empty.
Pow3rbull: That one is probably empty. Did you ever hear of a partition? Anyways, I'll
explain: We have a 320gb hard drive, and we can partition that hard drive
into 2 times 160. So the computer thinks there are 2 hard drives, but
actually it is the same. Or you can have an 80gb hard drive (or what ever
you have) and of that, about 10gb for the recovery. That way the computer
thinks there is an hard drive for recovery and an hard drive for user
space. 70gb is then left for you. Hopefully helped you..
WittgensteinSergeant™: HELL NO!!!!!!!! just format ur 1st hdd
newmodeUS: Yes, the correct hard drive to use is a SATA 2.5"
Pow3rbull: Get your vista disk, or burn one. Then, format your whole hard drive (this
removes ALL data) and format it to NTFS or FAT32. When you choose FAT32 it
is almost impossible to go back to NTFS. I would chose NTFS. Then, get a
copy of Windows XP. Be sure to have a driver cd from hp for your laptop
too. put in the vista disk, and go too the boot setup. go too boot setup
and place the dvd drive on 1st position. now restart. now wait till the
whole vista thing is loaded, and format your drives.
stonedfly2: where did you purchase your extra hard dive...mine got the click of death

Edward Mendez: I have added a 2nd HD to the same model Laptop but the OS will not

and not the secondary. Setup screen is no help. Any ideas??
GUITARWANNEBEE EVH: I got a HP dv9715nr and i have a WD 6350gb HD that works perfectly as my

Velger K'oltam: freak. Why the need for a harddrive caddy HP? Now I have to go out an buy a
stupid caddy JUST so I can use my 2nd HD. Shame on you HP.
aidyanimal: is it the one labeled 1 or 2 thank you for any help
ChaosStep: I'm having to replace my primary drive. I bought a new one and system
recovery dvds specific to my model of laptop; DV9820ea. is it just a case
of replacing hard drives and booting up with recovery discs to have it up
and running again?
Mr. Nice: imma buy me one and add it to my hp pavilion dv 9910us and also did you
know nvidia gefroce go 7150m 64 mb will run crysis at good frames at lowest
TobyTheTissue: @newmodeUS. My laptop only says Pavilion tx2000, but HP's driver support
page has 2000ed, 2000ez, 2000z & 2000CTO. Should I select CTO do you think?
newmodeUS: sorry, don't know the answer to that one.
newmodeUS: Is you 2nd HD new? if yes, you will have to format and partition the new
hard drive in order for the OS to see it.
Jayy_760: @newmodeUS How do I know what that is?
newmodeUS: Yes, you can still clone. Just make sure that you test the new cloned drive
extensively after cloning. Sorry, we don't have any cloning videos at the
present. If your laptop is a dv9000 series, the hard drive in there should
newmodeUS: You will have to use it in the primary HDD bay as the boot drive.
newmodeUS: If it is a new drive, you will have to "format and partition" the drive.
Timothy Liang: does anyone know wat does "CTO" stands for in - HP Pavilion dv9000 CTO
Notebook PC ? pleasee
Nome Byface: question ?? In order to upgrade the main HD ( C drive ) is their any
formating that needs to be done or does the main OS stay on the computer
and all i need to do is switch HD.. plug and play ??
newmodeUS: What you would do first is install the new HDD in the 2nd drive bay with a
2nd HDD kit. Then run the cloning software. Once done, swap the original
drive out with the new one. Thanks!
