The HP notebook has been in use for a long time, and the HP notebook's optical drive is no longer able to read the disk. The operating system could not be reinstalled because the original HP CD-ROM drive could not be purchased and the system crashed. In order to reinstall the system, a friend bought a HP laptop hard disk adapter card, and when he got home, he removed the HP laptop hard disk from the notebook and connected it to the IDE interface of the desktop computer through the adapter card. Then proceed to the advanced format of the C drive of the HP notebook hard drive on the desktop, and then reinstall WinMe. When the file is copied and ready to be restarted, shut down the HP notebook hard drive and put the hard drive back into the HP laptop. However, when I started reading the HP notebook hard disk after the self-test, the screen displayed "Key", and then stopped and could not be started.

After asking a friend, I learned that this HP laptop has never set a protection password, which can eliminate the possibility of problems caused by password settings. At the same time, the author also found that pressing any key on the keyboard after "Key" appears does not work. After all aspects of inquiries, a HP laptop repair expert told the author that the HP laptop may have a hard disk encryption protection to protect user data security, and he also told the author a solution.

Hard drive and create a system. Then create a directory on the other partitions of the HP laptop hard drive and copy all the drivers from the CD that came with your HP notebook. After the shutdown, the HP laptop hard drive is connected back to the HP laptop. At this point, I found that the HP laptop can be booted under DOS after booting!
