SOURCE: new Samsung HDD hangs up with boot

The drive may be faulty. See if the problem happens with the same drive in another computer.

SOURCE: is there a jumper setting

There should be, look on the rear of the drive, close to the SATA and power connectors, you should see the jumper connections as well.

It varies from drive to drive, but the jumper setting could be engraved near the connector, look of SL for a slave setting.

If no, look on the label on the top of the drive, there should be the jumper settings listed there.
Some may be ambiguous, my last one offered the option of Master on / off. (Jumper in position 1 for on, no jumper for off) The off in this case was of course slave.

The result being, no jumpers - Slave.

I want a converter for Hitachi HTS541612J9SA00 120 GB SATA Hard Drive to usb do you know wich one I need..?


You need a 2.5" inch SATA to USB external harddrive enclosure.

since its a laptop hard drive you need a small case.
for example this one http://www.amazon.com/2-5-SATA-HDD-Enclosure-Black/dp/B0018TCB0O

At boot up press F2 to enter the BIOS. That is where the change has to be registered for your PC to recognize the new HDD. So when you get the first meny there you will find the HDD. If not, then auto detect the HDD. Within a second or two your new HDD will be recognized. Also from the back of the new HDD. ie, the Seagate, check if the Seagate is the master. If not, then you will find a diagram there which tells you how to change the jumper so that your HDD will behave as master. And I hope you are not using the other HDD as well?

SATA 2 HDD


I think, one possible way is to manually force sata 2 (there is no such thing as sata 2) to sata 1 by using a jumper for the hard drive. For exact details, please consult the sticker on the hdd or contact the hdd manufacturer for firmware updates. And please report back, especially if it's a success. (Damn, the VT8237)

M/b cannot recognize SATA HDD


This is common to other mainboards, the SATA controller have it's own BIOS, but it only works correctly using two identical SATA HD's at same time for data protection purposes. If you have a free PCI slot there are expansion cards based on VIA chipset VT6421 with 2 internal SATA ports, other external and one IDE. See one here

Sata HDD set in primary master in Bios


Try considering these:

1. DOS disk doesn't recognize SATA, that's the truth
2. You're going to have a problem if you install OS in your computer (solution: do not select SATA in HDD type but rather IDE)
3. For your SATA HDD to become primary (boot first) try to select your SATA HDD as devic first to boot..

There is option in BIOS called something about automated SATA recognition or similar - disable it. It is under System configuration. And if you are putting new drive in then run full test from BIOS (Hard drive selftest - takes about 79min.)
I tried to reinstall Windows Media center on my HP dv6000 because my previous hdd crashed - When I put in installation cd - it said that it can't find hdd. I spent week to figuring that out. The thing is - as far as you haven't disabled that SATA thing in BIOS - PC doesn't recognize hdd. But only with Windows media center edition. With all other windows xp - there is no such problems. Strange.
