When I startup from the SATA drive Windows displayes the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Command Prompt etc screen and restarts.

It sounds like Windows might be trying to recover from what it thinks is a disk fault.
the first thing I would check is to make sure the SATA drive is set as the master. it's been awhile since I have done that but as I recall you simply move a jumper on the drive typically , look up the drive model and get the instructions for that. then make sure the SATA interface/drive is the primary boot device in the BIOS settings. Not sure what the key combination is for that but its probably F2 or something like that at boot. if all that checks out see if you can get to a command prompt and run a checkdisk. the command would be as follows. chkdsk c: /f When you do that it will run through several iterations of checking the disk and give you a short report at the end. you will then need to reboot. Hope that helps

SOURCE: Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA driver problem

If the laptop is also XP, the drive should be recognized without problems. Sometimes this may not happen if the disk is unusually partitioned (could happen if you manually dual-booted it with Linux, for example). Verify the enclosure is working properly and has enough power supplied to, and that it appears in Device Manager. If all this applies, the enclosure must be considered working and the problem might be in the partitioning or disk access.

In XP Pro, do Start > Run Command > DISKMGMT.MSC and press OK. See whether the disk appears (if it doesn't, it's the enclosure, or its drivers - or the disk was dying and is now dead, but that's not very likely), select the NTFS or FAT32 partition - ignore any others - right click and mount the unit as drive, say, G.

If it doesn't work but the partition is found, you may need a more powerful tool such as Paragon Partition Manager.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

Require replacement power/data pcb for a seagate barracuda 7200.11 1000Gbytes part number on PCB is 2HBAHNRQ


Contact your local computer store, a computer technician/data recovery technician may have just that circuit for you to use and transfer your data onto a new hard drive.

You may also try to contact Seagate in this regard, they offer 3 year warranty on all Barracuda hard drives.

Take care!

Trying to make my seagate barracuda 7200.9 slave


1) Open your computer case
2) On the back of the drive where the connectors are, you have jumpers. These small plastic tabs change the function of your hard drive. All hard drives have a special setup procedure. The information about jumper settings is on the top of the hard drive.
3) Remove plastic tabs and put them according to "Slave" instructions.
4) Connect drive to middle connector of the cord.
5) Connect power supply cord.
6) Secure the drive in place and close computer case.

Also make sure that the main drive is not set as slave.

Cannot detect Seagate Barracuda 7200.9


The motherboard has two SATA connectors but they only go up to a 150 MB/s data transfer rate.

Your Seagate however, is engineered for 300 MB/s data transfer.

Download the Seagate manual for this drive and you will see the diagram on the last page that shows how to place a jumper on the drive to make it work at 150 MB/s.

I have gateway computer with a seagte 7200.7 200


Hello mmlv6...the Barracuda 7200.7 series has been around awhile...if it's been in use all these years then it has performed well and you have gotten your moneys worth from it. I would recommend replaceing it with the new 7200.12 series of your capacity choice...You can remove your exsiting hard drive and install it an external drive bay or docking station and all data on it can be saved and/or transfered...providing it will still spin and you have no major sector damage.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

Your motherboard does NOT support SATA drives, without an added SATA controller. It does support PATA drives, such as the Samsung SP2514N and the Seagate PATA drive you listed, as well as any other PATA drive. A PATA drive may be referred to as PATA, IDE, ATA100, ATA133, or even ATA66, but not SCSI, Ultra320, U320, or SATA, SATA II, SATA100, SATA300, etc.

The Seagate drives are easy to identify, their model number ends in AS if it is a SATA drive, and just A if it is a PATA drive.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
