Question about Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 750 GB SATA Hard Drive

2 Answers

I added an SATA HD to a system whose C and D drives are a WD 400GB PATA HD. The Hitachi 750GB drive has no jumpers for master/slave. After boot-up the system sees it but assigns no E or other letter designation. The HD came with no documentation and the motherboard manual only mentions where to find the SATA connectors.

  • Right Click [My Computer] and click Manage
  • Click Disk Management on the left side
  • Inspect the drives listed. The new drive may need to be formatted for the operating system to recognize it and assign it a letter.
  • To format the drive, right click the drive with no letter, and click Format. Choose your format (Preferred NTFS), and quick format the drive so that windows recognizes it.

You need to check the drive manager in the control panel / admin icon. In here you should be able to see the drive and format it because if it is a new drive windows will not detect it as an acceptable drive before it is formatted by drive manager.

Western digital wd2500bevt slave jumper settings


SATA drive position is determined by the plug on the motherboard, not a jumper. Jumper settings are for PATA drives (much older).

Cant find the slave drive on boot


Master/Slave configuration I am assuming you have IDE hard drive and not SATA. SATA is a small cable IDE is a wide 40 wire flat cable. You must install the jumper on both drives as master and slave. On the old WD HDD master has jumpers between 5 and 6 and slave jumper between 3 and 4. Default is jumper between 1 and 2 which is cable select which you use for a single drive.

Hard drive won't reboot (jumpers not set proper)


Just google your drive's make and model and search the results for a diagram of the jumper settings.
If you have a SATA drive, there ARE no jumpers. If the drive is a PATA, then if it's connected with another drive or cdrom, then make the cdrom 'slave' and the disk drive 'master'.
Check your bios setting sometimes bios changes the boot order esp. if bios doesn't find a boot disk- make sure you have your desired boot device showing in the boot setup.

I have two hard drives in my tower How can I make it boot so that both hdd show in one os And it goes straight to windows


Windows will see both hard disks when Windows opens up.
For IDE/PATA hard drives the boot hard disk (C drive) must contain the Windows operating system and it must be jumpered as the Master drive. The other hard drive must be jumpered as a Slave drive if it is on the same data cable as the Master drive.
After Windows has been installed and this Slave drive has been partitioned and formatted Windows will see this hard drive as D: Drive which can be used as data storage etc.
If you have SATA hard drives you need to connect each SATA hard drive on its own SATA cable/controller.

Jumper setting for slave drive


there is no such master or slave setting when SATA is used.
it is mainly used to tell the motherboard which one is master or slave when connected with IDE cable (PATA).
you don't need to worry about it as you are using a SATA HD.

the boot disk priority can be set in the BIOS
press del or F2 after you press the power button on CPU. you will be put with the BIOS/CMOS setup. go to boot priority and set accordingly, there is also an option to set the default hard disk in case you have more than one HD.

Motherboard is not seeing the HD


generally its not a good idea to run both ide and sata drive at the same time.

if you are lucky in your bios it will have a emulate sata as pata/ide drives.

turn this on and be sure to select the ide drive with the OS on it as the master drive so it boots first.

also if you are doing this you will also need to change the jumpers on the sata drive as well to make it a slave and not a master otherwise you will have two master drives and it won't boot.

good luck
