I just replaced a hard drive that had gone bad (I think) as I was getting a "bad hard drive, backup and replace" message. I tried several options but decided it was best to just get a new one. The problem now is that I get a "Master Hard Disk: SMART Command Failed" press F4 to resume on my brand new hard drive (samsung SP0411N 40 gb)! Once I press F4, windows (XP Home edition) loads without a problem and works fine. Whats going on here? I have read I can disable SMART from the bios but am concerned there is another problem. Any suggestions??
