I am trying to upgrade my 80gb hardrive with a 320gb HDD from Samsung model HM320JI.
I formatted with windows XP and then used Acronis True Image to clone my 80gb C: drive to the new 320gb samsung via a 2.5" USB case. The entire process took like 3-4 hours and successfully completed.
I installed the new drive on my laptop, gets passed the dell screen, then windows screen appears and 2 seconds I get a blue screen with this error: Stop: 0X0000007B.
I reinstalled the original 80gb drive so i can use the internet to find fixes for this error, but no luck. I connected the 320gb via USB case and now windows recognizes drive as F: and shows only 73gb available. I tried to reformat but will only format 73gb.
Also, Acronis True image will not recognize the drive at all.
