Question about Computers & Internet
I just installed WD 160 HD the start screen is F1 to retry or F2 to set up.... in set up it say primary drive 0 unknown and primary drive 1 off
how should the they be set???
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.
