I BELIEVE THAT WD PROVIDES A CD WITH "WD DATA LIFEGUARD UTILITIES." IF YOU USE THAT DISK AND SELECT "DRIVE TO DRIVE COPY" SELECTION. THIS SHOULD CREATE A CLONE OF YOUR ORIGIONAL DISK. SELECT THE NEW DRIVE TO BOOT FROM EITHER IN BIOS SETTINGS OR FROM THE BOOT SELECT "F12" OPTION.
THE PC SHOULD BOOT FROM THE NEW DRIVE IF SELECTED
Hi, I believe you need to reinstall your operating system, follow these instruction:
/* Style Definitions */
mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt;

To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive,
reboot pc pressing F1 button.. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary
boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this
appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive
you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select
partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be
aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first)
Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system. Hope this helps
Floydage, some ribbons are different in the orentation of pin#1. try a differnent cable...but you said that you tried that right.? have you tried to make sure you have the latist BIOS. It could be this paticuler drive have a different bios it self...and yes drive's do have chip's and software in them. If nothing ells just load the OS to that drive anyway and than change the drive letters in windows.
if you want to connect two hard drive together then remove the jumper of the primary hard drive and don't touch the setting of the secondary drive then start the system.always make primary drive which have the os.
First check to see if your drive (the 160Gig) is set to master or slave. If you are going to use this drive as your primary drive (boot disk) it must be set as master, and it would be drive 0. If, on the other hand, this is a second drive, it should be set as "slave, and should be drive 1. If there is an auto-detect HDD in your Bios, try that. If not, and this machine still won't detect your HDD, you may need to download and install a Bios update, because if your Motherboard is too old, it may not recognize a 160 Gig HDD.
youre first hard drive is a primary master,,and the other one use the secondary master..remember same ide cable..and always check the jumper setting of youre two hard rives!?!?! because if not change the setting's youre pc is not boot or start window's
