    Only thing different I am hearing from a similar concern i just had and solved is you have a different brand notebook then mine. It seems at least in my case an incompatibility with HD to BIOS, In my case I installed larger HD and started with with the error 18 crap. My cure was a BIOS upgrade. I have HP and with tech chat they ftp BIOS upgrade. Hope this helps. I just happened on this post so if you need more in post me direct
