I even tried to make the 2nd drive as master with no slave but nothng happens. Only the motherboard's light that is working. Any Idea?

When you plug in the 2nd hard drive as a single drive does the drive spin up and the computer goes through the Power on self test (POST)?
If you cannot hear the drive spin up and the computer doesn't boot up then most likely the hard drive is faulty.

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

How do you pin a maxtor 40 gig hard drive? I want toi jumper it so it runs continuus withe the 40 gig hard drive I have with a operating system or how do I have two operating systems in the same computer I...


If you are using the older style hard drive, the main drive will be the master and the other the slave. The master has the pin up and down in the middle position and the slave should be the second to the last on the right when looking at it from the back. There should also be a diagram on the top of it. Double check me though, just going by memory. I know you are aware but.....make sure the computer is off and don't forget to plug in the power plug. The computer should "find" it on boot up and give it a name, probably D or E.

Need to know where to hook up the card reader and 2nd HD. I have an ASUS M2N68-AM motherboard and I was looking for a schematic for this board to tell me where I can safely hook things up.


I assume you have an external card reader with a USB connector. If that's the case, you plug the device into an existing and available USB port, either on the front or back of your PC, or side or back of your notebook.
If it's an internal one, then you should find an available power connector from the power supply, and you will probably need to remove a plate in your PC case to install the device.
Regarding the second HD, any connector on the motherboard will usually only accept its own matching connector from the new device.
If your HD is SATA, then you probably need a second data cable, since the power supply comes with two SATA power cables.
It should be connected next to the existing and identical connector for your existing HD, assuming it's also SATA. It the latter it's an IDE type HD, then you should try to find a matching set of connectors (usually two), and attach the data cable to either one. It does not matter which one you choose in this case, since your PC is already booting from the IDE HD and will consider the second HD as additional storage, not as your boot drive.

IBM T30 Start-up HD options


Why do you what to boot up from the 2nd hard drive?
If you want to boot up with a different operating system from a 2nd drive, I suggest you set up a dual boot system with the other operating system on the 2nd drive.
When you boot up you will be given a menu and you can choose which operating system you want. There is a time delay and if you don't choose a system it will default to the first operating system on the list.

Have maxtor 40gb hd want to add 2nd WD hd in DEll dim8200


(if both drives on the same cable):
Your boot drive goes at the end of the primary data cable.
Your second drive goes on the middle connection of the same cable.
The red stripe on the data cable needs to be closest to the power connection (red stripe to pin 1).
The jumper on the boot drive set to master.
The jumper on the second drive set to slave.
Look in the BIOS to make sure it sees both harddrives.
Boot the system.. it will need to be partitioned and formatted if not already..

Hard drive not working


hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck

Can't boot larger than 8gb hard drive


This is a known issue at HP, you should download and install the 68P4M ROM which will solve this:

- Fixes issue where system serial number was lost after upgrade to the new BIOS.
- Fixes variation in the noise of the fan when in motion.
- Fixes error where L1 cache shows only 16KB instead of 20KB in F10 Setup.
- Fixes error where FDISK could only see 8GB of 40GB and 60GB in the Multibay Hard Drive.

1st and 2d eide conector on mobo


Hi, Does not really matter whether slave via jumper or cable select on the secondary IDE. Your mb will boot to whatever HD you set it at in the BIOS/CMOS as the first boot device. The 3rd drive will be recognized as secondary whatever and if your CMOS/BIOS is set right it will boot from the primary master on IDE1. Good luck and kind regards.
