Replacing Fujitsu hard drive - how to copy without external drive?

  1. Hi,

    My Fujitsu Amilo Li1705 laptop has been reaching full capacity (80gb) for a while so I decided to get a new hard drive.

    I've updated the RAM from 1gb to 2gb with no problem.

    My hard drive has arrived but with no cables, instructions etc. and searching the web has proved just as unfruitful as most sites refer to external hard drives.

    I don't have an external disc so was wondering if there's any way of copying everything over. I've heard of temporarily taking the CD drive out to have the two drives at once but wouldn't know where to start.

    Any help/ instructions would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Dale

    Obviously you did not build a Recovery Disc originally?

    You can just order a Recovery Disc from HERE

    If your machine is not supported, then then sometimes the Fujitsu forum members will help, at Their Forum

    That's 3 ways of getting your Recovery media. I hope it helps :)
