    I have a T40 IBM and tried to install a different HDD but it does not work.
    The drive I have is a travelstar 6G Model DARA-206000. Any ideas why it
    wont recognise this HDD?

    Oh I forgot to mention I have formatted it using a USB connection to the
    desktop and when I install it in the laptop it doe not recognise the HDD at
    all. I have booted using a floppy and tried an install of XP ...failed NO
    HDD detected. Tried running Fdisk and partition magic off the floppy
    and...no HDD detected. I am starting to think this "old" HDD is not
    supported by the laptop bios.....
