Thinkpad 760XL. How to replace hard drive with a non-IBM 6GB
I still appreciate using the old 760XL for looking at photos because -among 3 newer
laptops- it gives the best picture quality.
However, it is time to get a bigger hard drive than the original 2,1GB.
It would make it possible to install XP.
I thought it would be possible to use drives up to 6GB, but after trying with 3
different drives, I must give up: the beast will only recognise its own old drive.
In spite of max. carefullness.
I am aware of jumpers and I have prepared the drives with partitionMagic8 on another PC.
additional detail: I have been using parts from a thinkpad 760CD to ...IBM thinkpad bought 2000 hard drive replacement: Toshiba or Seagate

...how hard to replace titanium internal hard drive? How to clone old hard drive onto it?
Hi all -
I have a 2001 titanium laptop with a 20 Gig hard drive. The thing is
getting too full and I'm toying with the idea of getting a bigger one and
replacing it. Questions: 1) how hard is it to do myself? Is it easy to
ruin/break something or is it pretty simple to do it right? 2) are there
instructions somewhere on-line? 3) are there different brands of drives I
can buy? If so, any suggestions for good ones or ones to avoid? and 4) I
don't want to re-install the OS, software, preferences, GUI behavior, etc.

...Replacing a laptop hard drive
I have an old Toshiba laptop. It's got a pentium 4. The hard drive
broke and I want to replace with a working HD. My question is what
kind of hard drive do I get? Are all laptop hard drives (backward)
compatible and will work? Or will only a special kind of hard drive
work and/or fit correctly? Thanks.

Wednesday, April 28th 1:30 p.m.
Can someone refer me to a company and/or Web site that I can use to
replace bent and broken pins on an IBM "TravelStar" hard drive? The
model number for my drive is: IC25N030ATDA04-0. Since IBM sold its
hard drive business to Hitachi, I called them and asked if I could
send it my drive to have it remove the area of the drive where the
pins are located, replace them, and ship it back to me.
Unfortunately, I was told that it couldn't. Thanks.
...Re: Replacing Laptop Hard Drive
If you want to avoid re-loading software, and have a healthy drive
currently, look for something called E-Z Gig or something similar. First,
delete anything you don't want to transfer, make sure your anti-virus is
up-to-date, run a complete virus scan and then de-frag the old disk. (You
don't want to transfer old problems to the new disk). E-Z GIG is an
enclosure for a 2.5" drive with a PC card interface to your laptop and some
software and instructions. The new drive goes into the enclosure, the
software clones your exisiting drive, then you swap the drives.

...Replacing Gericom laptop hard drive?
I believe that my Gericom laptop, is a re-badged Iwill N755IN.
Though it's still under warranty Gericom have failed to comply with
their own RMA procedure and I've wasted a lot of time and energy
jumping through their hoops to nowhere.
Since I'm now intending to replace the hard myself, I hope to maximize
the HD capacity. These are 2 drives I've seen advertised:
2.5" 100GB, 5400RPM, 8MB Cache, ATA100 (Replacement for MHT series)

Can anyone comment either from practical experience or speculation on
the difficulty of a self-repair/replacement of a IBM Thinkpad screen?
Just at a glance and from looking at pictures of replacement screen
units, the process doesn't look much more complicated than changing a
set of spark plugs (well, maybe a little more difficult). Looks to be
just releasing the hinge assembly connector screws and then some
cables disconnects/reconnects and finis!
Assuming you're smart enough to acquire the correct replacement part,
is it really much more difficult than that?
Other ins...Replacing a boot hard drive A with another hard drive A', while preserving the data in A
I have a Linux box L with three hard drives, A, B and C. B and C
contain just user data, whereas all the OS data (that is, things like
/usr, /etc, /boot etc.) lives in A. I would like to replace A with an all
new hard drive A'. What is the least painful way of achieving this?
In an ideal world what I'd like to do is the following:
1) Install A' in some other Linux box L' that is accessible from
L by NFS.
2) Replicate A on A' over the NFS. (How's this done, by the way?)
3) Replace A with A'. That is, remove A from L, and A' from L';
