Fitting New SATA Harddrive

I purchased two new Hitachi Deskstar 320 gig drives with the intention of replacing the IDE Drives in my current machine & reinstalling my XP operating system. Disconnected both hard drives connected one Sata drive to the SER1 interface port set the bios to boot from CDROM inserted my operations system disk and switched on but was told my system had no hard drive present. Switched off restarted went into the bios and asked it to search for hard drive but it did not find one. Wondering if there was a need to format the new drive I reconnected the Primary drive with OS and connected the Sata drive to the SER2 interface started up machine entered bios which told me no secondary drive was connected What do I do next Please?????

    Thanks mistyman, I've now downloaded this file 4/5 times but it still fails to recognize the 320 gig
    hard drive, indeed it tells me there is no hard drive fitted, although when booting up if I press Ctrl+F I go into some Raid configuration, that does recognize, that there is a 350 gig Hitachi drive fitted.
    jtra's solution, after accepting the fact that I have misplaced (or lost)the floppy that came with the system is, I'm afraid way beyond my limited capabilities Walter3

Did you check to make sure the sata interface in the bios is on. Not the RAID, just the sata. In the bios settings you'll find it under "Intergrated Peripherals/IDE Device Configuration". Make sure you enable both SATA1/SATA2 and SATA3/SATA4 if your not sure what plug you have your drive plugged into. Good luck.

You will need to hit F6 at the beginning of the windows install process to load the SATA/RAID drivers from floppy disk (assuming your system has a floppy drive and you have the drivers on a floppy disk). The alternative is to slipstream an xp install disk with the needed drivers. The easiest way to do that is using the free utility called nLite (

    Walter, you can get the drivers from the manufacturer's web site and simply copy them to floppy disk to do the F6 install during windows install. The only drawback is that you do need a floppy drive in the system. The ONLY alternative is to slipstream an xp install disk. At times, I have opted to temporarily install a floppy drive in a system just for this purpose rather than do the slipstream which is, as you say, fairly technical.

I purchased my old computer in 2009 and it came with the Hitachi HD, HDS721010CLA332 (0F10383). That computer has failed and I purchased a new HP Pavilion. Can I take the old Hatachi HD and make it a slave...

Hi there.

Since your hard drive is a SATA drive, there is no such thing as master and slave drive anymore.

All you need to do is plug it into your new computer (assuming there is an extra slot for a hard drive in there). You will need an extra plug from your power supply that will plug into the hard drive as well as a SATA cable that will plug your hard drive into the motherboard.

Another thing you can do is get an external hard drive enclosure and put it in that. Just make sure you get a SATA one, not an IDE one. I hope this helps.

Can't detect my harddrive

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to boot

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

Ecs 6100sm-m mobo connections

you have a few options

1) buy a sata harddrive (faster then ide), use the ide for the second harddrive (backup) and cd/dvd rom

2) buy a sata cd/dvd rom use the ide on both harddrives (1 set to slave)

3) depends on your budget, buy a sata drive + sata cd/dvd rom so your main drive is on sata (faster than ide) then you only have your second drive as your backup drive on ide.

i had the same problem when i rebuilt mine, i went for the seperate harddrive and cd/dvd rom and my 320 gb ide as my backup drive

sorry to jump on this post aswell, see what others think
