I have a very odd issue: the hard disk (I think) on two previously working computers failed. So bought 2 new ones. Went from 512GB to 1TB. BIOS recognises the new disk. But the kernel doesn’t. I get: “cannot find disk on system (getHardDisk)”.
I did exactly the same replacement 2 months ago, although in that case I got a 1TB WD I think, this time I had a 1TB Seagate Barracuda. But specs appear to be pretty identical.
Is something else wrong with these computers? That’s what I’m thinking. Maybe motherboard gone or something. Is that a reasonable guess for this kind of problem?
