Introdução

If the hard drive makes scratching or whining noises, or if the operating system does not boot due to a disk read error, you may need to replace it.

The hard drive contains operating system files and your personal files. If you intend to replace the hard drive, save any personal files you need later onto an alternative media source before completing these steps. You will need to install an operating system on the new hard drive once the new hard drive is installed on the netbook.
