    Computer halts with an old hard disk

    Hi, I have a hard disk (250 GB, 7200 RPM) which is from a 2005 HP computer. I would like to use it running Linux/WinXP on a compatible ZT Systems AMD A8-3850 computer. Almost after XP installation (it restarts and configure the application), the desktop PC crashes. Even it is reboot, I check the BIOS settings, it will crash again. The hard drive does not look bad as it still runs on the old computer. What can cause this problem? I suspect some settings are different from the new hard disk although I do not know which are. Thanks,

    Hi,
    When I build the gsmartcontrol, it has errors:
    .............
    checking for target thread support flags... configure: WARNING: Cannot detect compiler thread support. Set CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and LIBS manually.
    checking for target system extension flags... CFLAGS: -D_GNU_SOURCE; CXXFLAGS: -D_GNU_SOURCE; LIBS:

    Warning: unknown mime-type for "config.log" -- using "application/octet-stream"
    Error: no "edit" mailcap rules found for type "application/octet-stream"

    ............

    I have tried to upload config.log, but it shows this file is invalid file. I do not know why.

    Thanks,

    sudo apt-get install gsmartcontrol

    Your are right! I change to another new hard drive. Both old and new machine run without problem now.
