Dell HDD failure - but still works in other PC???


Political User
I've a Dell XPS 1530M with a fujistsu 320 GB HDD. It has failed with error 0142 and status #79. It won't boot up at all.

However I plugged it into my desktop and have full access to all the files! Weird or is it?

I've asked Dell and they says it's just failed and are not helpful, does anyone know what the score is with this drive?

Can I mirror it to the new drive and get it to work without reinstalling software - if so how?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
