Need to replace the HD on my daughter Notebook. It has no CD drive. I built a bootable USB for backup with backup programs.
This is a Samsung Notebook Model NP530U3B
HD: Hitachi HTS545050A7E380
500GB S-ATAII Slim Hard Drive (5400RPM) with ExpressCache 16GB
I need to replace the HD since after every boot she is getting the following warning window:
“Windows detected a hard disk problem
Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss and ……”
The HD is divided into two discs:
Disk 0 with the System partition (100MB), partitions C, D and E
Disk 1: [Sandisk SSD 16 GB] with two unformatted partitions – Primary Partion (10.61GB) and Hibernation Partition (4.29).
I modified the booting priority on the Notebook BIOS to have all listed USB’s first, [USB HDD, USB FDD, USB CD, SATA CD) but when rebooting it was always the HD which was booting first and fast, and the Samsung Logo appearing immediately.
I installed Macrium free on the notebook and I am going to perform full backup from within Windows, (the only remaining option for the moment) but for a recovery to a new HD, if the installed one fails, I need assistance for what to modify in the BIOS to prevent this fast booting to the HD and proper booting from the USB.
I need also instructions how to partition the new HD in order to restore the backup image
