And here is a little something to put in your caddy when done:

So has anybody else besides Bill done this. I spent about 3 hours and lost count how many times I took the caddy apart and no luck. I was trying to put it in my CF-29 MK3. I have a WD 160GB HD. I did remove the black jumper and I just checked the sata board to see if I damaged it and its ok .I just put my old HD back in to see if I messed up the cable or anything else but it booted up into windows so its still ok. The other HD did have windows 7 on it but I did a format on it before I started this . I just put it in a HD case to check it out and it shows 146GB (160gb) So did I miss :confused: something :confused: ???

Blair,

That is a fault of Winslows and Bios.

146 of 160gb is normal.

Windows and BIOS report low, always, and You loose a small portion for hidden system files and the recycle/Control files.

I found when I installed Win7, on my new 250 SATA, the drive would not recognize the Win7 disk. I installed XP to the first restart and then restarted the Win7 Disk and told it to new install after drive format. Went fine from there. Yes, I lost the start-up time for XP, about 30-35 min. But Win7 was FIGHTING me and I don't fight well.
:boing: :blowaway: :swords:

I stopped on the Win7 install after it was running because I needed to restart my XP drive on the new 640gb drive to further isolate my Toughbook for fieldwork, because I have over 145 gig (that's over 27,000 songs) of Music, I use as a DJ. With a 540gb partition, I can isolate my music without having to take support or secondary drives. Less hardware :headbang:

Well after countless times taking out/installing the sata mod I installed it this time using only the bare caddy / 160GB / sata board just to see what I was doing wrong.Into the BIOS I go... :pbjt: 160GB :pbjt: finally .So I must be cramming it in wrong or something before when I install it with all the foam because it's tight. I am running the harddrive erase overnight and when I get up I will install the restore disk and go from there.

Glad to hear you got it working Blair, :tool:

Now you understand what I meant when I said, It is a tighter fit. Be careful when squeeeeezing it back together. LOL. :doh:

I have two caddies that I now swap back and forth, one with XP on a 640gb. And Win7 on a 250gb. It just takes time to get it figured out, it is like sometimes the BIOS does not want to see the new drive and then all of a sudden there it is.

Don't be afraid to contact me if you have a problem.

I don't think so. I have a few CF-73's. The caddy is is very small and doesn't have a lot of padding in it. There just is enough room for the hard drive.
