Well, no you cannot simply cut and paste an entire OS to another machine. Unless that machine HAS THE EXACT SAME HARDWARE AS THE HOST, you will never find an OS capable of what your asking.

Is the "HD" an SSD (Solid State Drive) or is it a "HDD" (Hard Disk Drive)? Here's a few simple guidelines regardless of "technologies" Hard Disk manufacturers claim to add over the years: Any HDD or SDD running while on may take damage from the g-force the device takes, as well as other environmental factors. A HDD is far more likely to take damage on vs ...

You may be lucky: according to Wikpedia on"Head Crashes": Head crashes were a common problem on laptop computers, since they are subject to sudden motion. This has led to the development of technologies that detect sudden motion and take evasive action (for example by parking the heads), sometimes known as "active hard-drive protection" or ...

I was searching months for a decent solution for this problem with same NP Samsung model. There are an incredible key-combination to boot from DVD-ROM and finally to get access. First thing is to reset bios configuration with RTC BIOS pins, located besides RAM slots (alternatively, you can remove the CMOS battery for a moment). Then, insert a bootable USB ...

I had this same problem, but found the available answers confusing and incomplete, so I put together a step-by-step guide, assuming as little background as I could. Run Memtest86+ in “Badram” output (preferably from a bootable external medium). When Memtest86+ starts, type: “c” (“configuration”), then “4” (“Error Report Mode”), then “3” (“Bad RAM ...

To put this in perspective, the vast majority of computers and electronics use an inexpensive surge suppressor or nothing at all, and are never damaged for the lifetime of the device. Nonetheless, I'll go over the common types: Power Tap: These provide no protection at all; they simply provide additional outlets. The back or bottom label will identify ...

Is it possible to separate the storage and connect it to another controller or some other type of hardware that can read it? In general, all external drives are basically internal ...

I've read the report mentioned above and check operating temp ranges for samsung, WD, and hitachi hard drives. Based on research I have concluded that drives operating in the 30 degrees to 45 degrees offer the least likely hood of failure; A S.M.A.R.T. high temperature of up to 55 degrees is not a cause for any concern; and that Peek temperatures over 60 ...

Floppy disks and modern flash memory are two totally different things. A USB flash drive has a flash controller chip with complex logic to handle things like wear leveling and error correction. The underlying complexity is hidden from the computer so it only sees logical blocks and not physical ones. Accessing a floppy disk on old systems was much more low ...

Hard disk malfunction is very difficult to pinpoint. There are a number of possibilities as to what the actual fault is, but common causes for the "click of death" - as your video demonstrates - include: Controller board failure - the PCB on the outside of the hard disk (attached to the disk) contains chips and firmware that provide the instructions to ...
