I would make sure that you really have a hard drive problem before
looking to switch. What evidence do you have that the drive is bad?
I ask because it is a very common problem that if the partition table
is written to a hard drive assuming one geometry and the driver trying
to access the drive is assuming a different geometry, you will see these
OS Not Found errors.
