770X: only ca. 800 MB of 8.1GB hard drive recognized

It's a Type 9549 with 196MB RAM and Win98 SE on FAT 32. I reseated the HDD to no avail, updated the bios with spsdii42.exe (it says version 1.11, funny, should be 1.10, shouldn't it?) and put in a new battery. Any ideas anyone? Help appreciated. I'd like to install WinXP or some newer Linux, but that's hard with only 800MB. The WinXP installation CD and BART PE only recognize 800MB, too. Cheers, Marek.

 

Label on the HDD:

IBM

FRU P/N 02K0514

ASM P/N 02K0512

01K9735

Welcome to the forum!


While I'm not in the least familiar with 770 series, you might be able to find the answer to your question here:

Thank you. I checked the thread, very interesting, but my HDD problem didn't appear. I tried to register with forum.thinkpads.com several times before, but never got a confirmation email, so I can't post.

Additional info on my TP:

Re: 770X: only ca. 800 MB of 8.1GB hard drive recognized

Hello! I am in the possession of an old IBM ThinkPad hard drive (8.1GB, FRU P/N 02K0514). I don't have the machine anymore but this hard drive was given to me by the family of an old friend of mine who passed and left this hard drive for me (it has pictures and memories). I have tried to call IBM countless times and I keep getting switched on without success. Can anyone, please, advise me which type of cable I need to purchase to be able to read what is on it? I am currently a Mac user but have access to PCs. Thank you very much!

You will need an 2.5" IDE to USB cable (or 2.5" IDE to whatever your Mac uses), something like this: http://www.logilink.eu/showproduct/AU0006C.htm?seticlanguage=en
