Medion Erazor P7647 Hard Drive Replacement

Hi

The Hard Drive on my Medion Erazor P7647 (MD60804  MSN 30023353, started to corrupt.

 

I have used the chkdsk Command, it seems to have fixed the problem, if this fix is temporary, so I need to buy a specific hard drive, or are all laptop hard drives compatible ?

(Was thinking of using Amazon)

 

Some questions on the actual replacing of the HD:

So I simply exchange the drive and the machine will operate normally ?

I had no 'setup' disks.  The HD does have a 'recover' partition, do I need to copy the contents into a folder on the new HD or do I need to make a partition  like on the original.

Any advice/tips on installing the new HD greatly appreciated.

Thanking you all in advance.

Hello @Renme and welcome to the community.


- 1. back up your data Before you physically replace the drive, back up all the data you want to keep.
- 2. create a recovery medium
- 3. remove the old drive
- 4. insert the new drive
- 5. reinstall the operating system
- 6. reinstall your programmes and files

 

A 2.5" SATA HDD (Toshiba MQ01ABD100M) has been installed before and all other 2.5" SATA HDD should work without problems.
