Default Inspiron 8600 - Dead Hard Drive

The author has marked this message not to be archived. This post will be deleted on November 24, 2018.

Well, I've been playing with old machines...

My daughter was cleaning out her closet, and handed me her old Dell
Inspiron 8600 Pentium M laptop, XP Home SP1, from 2004. It hadn't been
fired up for a long, long, time. I thought I'd see in what condition this
thing is.

The charger worked, and I booted it up, but got:

missing/corrupt C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

I booted up with the OEM provided Windows Home SP1 reinstall DVD, and
selected the Recovery Console. I typed "copy D:i386\ntoskrnl.exe C:
\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe", but got file not found.

A D:dir showed 0 KB for i386, so I tried to expand ntoskrnl.ex_:
I typed "expand D:i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe" I
got Access denied.

I figured I'd try a new install of Windows Home using the OEM DVD. I
booted from the DVD, and selected Install Windows. I deleted all
partitions, and did a quick format. Everything went smoothly. I got to
the screen where it asks for a Name and Organization. I didn't enter a
name, hit Next, and it came back and told me I had to enter a name. Oops,
that's right. But, the cursor was locked up, and was the screen. I had
to do a hard quit.

I restarted the laptop, wondering what would happen.

I get No Boot Device Found. Oh o.

I go into the BIOS Setup, and next to Primary Hard Drive: None (No changes
can be made on this page, other than time/date)

Next to Modular Bay: DVD+RW

On the setup page that shows the boot order, both the hard drive and DVD
drive show enabled. I can toggle between enable/disable, reboot, but this
does not make the hard drive active.

I boot from the OEM Resource CD, and select Open a DOS session. A RAMBUS
disk is now assigned drive C:. There were no useful tools there.

I removed the hard drive and connected to my Win7 desktop via USB adapter.
I tried to format using Disk Management, but that gave me a failed message
with no details.

I then tried to format with diskpart, but got:

I thught I had an old Inspiron 6400 laying around, that uses the same hard

For $15, I can get a refurbished hard drive for this laptop.

Anyone ever deal with this company? Att $15, it's worth the risk. In the
long run, I don't care if I get this laptop up and running, I'm more
curious just to see if I can get it running again.

Default Inspiron 8600 - Dead Hard Drive

I always keep a spare new HD on hand. If I need
it, I then order a replacement spare.

It doesn't work for the obsolute types of HD
though.
