HI, I recently purchased a Compaq 311c-1020sa mini netbook & have upgraded the hdd but cannot get it to recover now & have no way of getting the old HD back. Before I upgraded, I created a recovery set using the built in Roxio Back on Track recovery disc creator. It created 1 x recovery boot disc & 2 x recovery cd's. Then I installed the new Western Digital wd500bevt hard disc & tried to recover using the verified recovery disc set created & this is what happens: 1) It boots of the 1st recovery boot disc into the recovery options menu & I choose either 'disaster recovery' or 'image recovery' 2) On the next screen I have to select the image source (Revovery cd 1) & destination.......However there is no appropriate destination as the hard drive cannot be seen in here. I can see a 'System partition' made up of about 100mb which I assume is the boot disc data loaded into cache memory & also shows the cd drive but there is no hdd. 3) I have checked this disc in win 7 & it works fine, I have fdisk'd & deleted all partitions but still no luck. I have tried to recreate partions but that also hasnt helped. I know the drive isn't faulty & I know that some people had issues with xp installs on this machine & sata drives but I don't want to do a clean xp install, but a factory recovery. Please help!
