Question about Cornerstone FIC VA-503+ Socket 7 AT Motherboard 1MB Cache
I have a fic va 503+ motherboard the primary hard drive is a western digital 60 gb its recognized as a slave drive even in auto detect in the bios
Along with habib_101s solution, make sure it is on the end connector of the IDE cable, The middle connector is always the slave drive. Also if the IDE cable has a red or blue connector on one end - that end plugs into the motherboard - don't try to reverse it , especially if you see a small hole in the cable near the colored connector.

You probably need the change the jumper on the hard drive itself. The jumper looks like a thin little cap that covers a set of pins on the back of the hard drive. You should see it next to when you power supply connects and most drives will usually have a diagram on how to change the jumper from a slave to a master.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
you will have to have master with slave set up
you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?
Hope this helps
