Acer aspire hard drive upgrade doesn't work.

ADAMSKI1952ADAMSKI1952 Posts: 1Member

Hi.

I've been attempting to upgrade the hard drive on my acer aspire 4920. from 120gb to 320 gb .Tried using recovery disks but after successful install I get the restart message then nothing on reboot.Also tried cloning the original disk to the new drive but still no luck. (get the restart loop)

Been considering updating to the latest bios (version 1.21) but leaving that action open as a last resort.

Anyone help with this?

    You didn't say which OS you have but with Windows 7-up you should be able to create a recovery flash drive and save a system image on a hard drive. Then use the recovery drive to restart the machine with the new disk and when asked, tell it to recover from the system image you saved.

     

    ps this works if going from a smaller to an equal or larger disk but not to a smaller one.
