I'll put it like this; The fact that it's and Ultra ATA 100 interface and that it's a 5400 RPM drive is somwhat of a concern.. Don't know if your laptop will support the 5400 RPM speed, but the good news is,it won't hurt your laptop to try it.
Also, I don't think the Ultra ATA 100 interface will be a problem, maybe require you to change BIOS setting (maybe).

Slave is ok but master freezes...


you can install even if it is a slave disk. also you can try setting the jumpers to master mode, check the sides of the hdd, it has a jumper setting and set it to master, using the shorting pin, just plug it out and connect it to the right setting

Hard drive from gateway solo pro 40 gig will it work in toshiba


I'm pretty sure it will. The only thing is that Gateways of that generationn used a custom connector which plugs onto the hard disks standard IDE / ATA connector.Just pull this extra connector off and you can use the disk in any machine.
Also ,Toshiba used similar adapters,so if Toshiba's using one on your model,then you'll need to palce the toshiba adapter onto the hard disk from your Gateway. You may also have to go into your BIOS ,and make sure the BIOS recognizes the disk if your BIOS isn't already set to "auto detect".

Hard drives show up in BIOS but not in My computer? WHATS UP?


You should not use line select on any of the drives at this point. Set the jumpers on the components to one master and one slave on each channel. Personally I would put one HD and one optical drive on each channel and make the optical drives the slaves but that's not required. Win98 uses a different file system than XP (FAT32 compared to the newer NTFS) but you can still use the drive. I would copy all the files you want to save and then reformat it using NTFS for better performance.

Boot into XP, both HD should show up when the jumpers are set correctly. If they still do not show up go into your BIOS and double check that all master/slave designations match what you have set the jumpers to.

Seagate 320GB


It could be that it's formatted as NTFS, which Win 98 probably can't recognise. Problem is FAT 32 can't deal with drives over about 80 GB. There may be software patch out there to allow NTFS on Win 98, or (only solution I have used), you could format it as several partitions, including at least one FAT32 for your machine to see.
