"WRONG MACHINE" message when installing Xp Recovery disk on new HDD on Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100...DMI Problem??
Posted on 2004-08-02
PC: Laptop Toshiba Satellite pro series 6100, two years old
It appears that my HDD suffered bad (hard failured) sector failure, and I am now in the process of replacing the HDD.
I purchased a Toshiba HDD compatible to my oldone, (60G, 5400rpm, 12ms) however when I installed the new HDD, and try
to load the recovery disk, this message pop up...WRONG MACHINE...I called Toshiba, which indicated that was the DMI.
Does anyone outhere know what this DMI is, and how to bypass this monopoly control, which does not allow me to load the Xp recovery disk. Is this a B. Gates Xp control scheme or is this Toshiba service control scheme
