    This answer was good enough to get me on the way to solving my problem but it still did not provide information about function of each of the four pairs of pins.

Serial ATA interface disk drives are designed for easy installation. It is not necessary to set any jumpers, terminators, or other settings on this drive for proper operation. The jumper block adjacent to the SATA interface connector on SATA 150MB/s drives is for factory use only. The jumper block adjacent to the SATA interface connector on SATA 300MB/s drives can be used to force the drive into SATA 150MB/s mode for use with older SATA controllers that only work with SATA 150MB/s drives.

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 cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.

Hard drive and/or jumper and/or data cable problem?


ok, Lets start by looking at the cable colors you are talking about. The drive doesn't care wether it is on secondary or Primary drive cable. As EIDE drive cables can support 2 drives each, 1 being a Master and the other being Slave. With no jumpers on the drive it should be set as Master. You can only have 1 Master drive on each channel or cable as you identified it. If you have set the drive to Cable Select and the Computer does not support this you will have problems. There should be a diagram on the top of the drive showing the different jumper settings. If not a computer store that sells parts should be willing to give you a cd that Seagate distributes that you can use to see the settings or teh Seagate website. They have used teh same jumper settings for years on EIDE drives regardless of how large they are. The only real limitation is going to be what the computer can see and use. If you are going to use that drive as a Master Drive on the Primary EIDE channel you will have to have and OS installed on it eventually as that will be the boot drive. The computer is not going to boot from a Slave drive without a third party boot loader which acts as the initial boot OS until you have selected teh OS you want to load.

How to make sata hard disk a slave???


Look at the jumper settings. These jumpers are located near the data cable and the power port of the hard disk. Usually by default, this jumper is set to "Master". To make it a slave, just remove the black or blue jumper or please refer to the jumper guide table printed in you hard disk's label.

Jumper settings for slave


Page 21 in this manual shows the jumper should be removed to set this drive as a slave. You could also position it over the second column of pins, that is the cable select position and should also work if the drive is a slave or master. Your other drive on the cable would also need to be set to cable select if you do that.

Slave jumper setting


SATA drives don't have jumper settings.

You can set master/slave in BIOS.

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z.
