Replacing the Hard Disk Drive (9552)

Replacing the Hard Disk Drive

If you replace the internal hard disk drive, you must recopy all of the system programs onto the replacement hard disk drive. To recopy the programs:
1.  Start the system using the customer's backup copy of the system  partition.
2.  Select Backup/Restore system programs  from the Main Menu.
3.  Run Restore the system partition to load  the IML image, the system programs, and the  diagnostic programs onto the hard disk drive just installed.

NOTE:

1.  If there is not a backup copy of the system partition,  make one before replacing the hard disk drive.  (See 'Making a System Partition Backup Copy'.)
2.  If the customer's backup copy of the system partition is incomplete,  you cannot restore the whole system partition.  If this occurs, after you have recopied the IML image, get the  option diskettes and use Copy an option diskette to recopy the  option files onto the system partition.
3.  If the IML image is loaded onto the hard disk drive, but the  customer's operating system has not been loaded, the insert  diskette icon will appear on the screen.
