Hard Drive Anonymous 18/05/08(Tue)02:05 No. 22551 ID: 81bd02

I recently bought a Gateway DX4375-UR22. It came with a 1 terabyte hard drive. I turned it on, and it booted up using Ubuntu. Me being me, I stupidly decided to take it apart. I put it back together, and now there is a problem with the hard drive. Everything else works fine, except for the hard drive. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 1000 Gigabyte. I decided to try it in another computer, but the other one does not recognize it as a drive. I tried putting a hard drive from another computer into the Gateway to see if it would boot, but no luck. The seagate drive spins, but it is not transferring data or being recognized. Can I save the drive? How can I boot up the computer?

Buy dock:

Plug dock into second system.

Verify it sees the drive. Remember that if you're booted into Windows that it won't see ext partitions, you'll have to go into disk management to see that the disk is present.

Does the gateway see the disk from the other computer in the BIOS/UEFI? You may have connected the SATA cable to the wrong port when you put it back together, some OEMs have odd eSATA ports on the motherboard that look like a normal SATA port but have to be enabled separately in the BIOS/UEFI as they're meant to be cabled to a eSATA port on the back of the system (but are only present in some models - the rest share the same motherboard but lack the back connector and cabling).
