Hello, I am trying to move a hard disk from my Hp pavillion dv9000 laptop to a dv9500. You'd think you could just boot to safe mode then replace the drivers, but even then I get INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. How would I install the hd controller when I can't boot to XP?
You can not swap out a working drive with windows on it to another computer that has different specs. You will need to re-install the operating system.
Reinstall the Operating System ....Why ?
It can be done , sometimes and various ways.
I recently swapped out a Motherboard on my Plasma TV System PC and booted up - didnt like new Mobo.
So Loaded my previous Acronis Image back onto the drive and "checked" 2nd option for Acronis Universal Restore.
No issue - up and running after ten Min .
