I bought a new SATA 500 GB HD to go in my HP Pavilion dv9000 into the 2nd HD bay. The physical installation is easy, but the notebook locks up when booting. I had gone thru the process of installing XP on the drive via the restore disks bf putting it in.
How do i get it to just add the drive as a second drive for storage, etc? Since there are no jumpers on the drive to make it a slave, is it a dual boot problem?
I'm new to the forums, so I appreciate any help on this. Great job on the website!
