I can access the external hardrive which the computer shows as the E drive however my files were in a password secured profile so when I try to access them through the HP laptop I am denied. I want to boot the HP laptop using the external hardrive so I can acess my profile info and disable the password so my files can be accessed.
When I enter in BIOS and change the master disk to the hardrive from an older laptop (healthy and online according to disk management status) the computer boots but before Windows loads a black screen with only a blinking white cursor appears and nothing more. What do I do?
I'm using an HP Pavilion dv4000 and attempting to use a Fujitsu hardrive from a Gateway laptop.
