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

    Thanks fnshman, My BIOS (Phoenix Award)does not appear to have this option in the 'Integrated Peripheral' section. 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 (http://www.nliteos.com/).

    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 have a Deskstar 80GB hard drive and I am adding another drive to the computer. How do I set the Deskstar to the Master. I'm not sure what the pin settings should be?


If you have the EIDE cables on your PC, it is easy. Your drives need to have their jumpers in the CBL SEL (cable select) positions (identified on the case on the sticker) and then you simply connect your Deskstar to the Master connector, and your other drive to the Slave connector.

Hard desk can't dectet the hard desk


I would recommend TechRx, inc. for a free exam of the drive. The Hitachi Deskstar drive has some unique featues that allow a data recovery company to do firmware repair easier than other brands of drives. When a drive is not detected, it could be due to NVRAM corruption on the drive. If you find my answer helpful, please leave feedback/rank.

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.

HDD not recognised


HI Your Hard Drive is previously formatted and have done different partition provided by your previous machine where you took this hard drive from. Use "The Partition Magic" Software, it will help you to fix and repartition your hard drive in the new format. I have this problem before and now my hard drive can connect with any computer. The key in this issue is any hard drive goes with the original machine has been formatted and do its own partition from manufacturer so if you take it out later for use with other machine, you will need a software to completely rearrange the new partition in universal format so other computers can recognize it. This manufacturer purpose to protect your data from hacking, stealing once you take it out from the original machine. That is why when you connect it to other machine, this hard drive will not be recognized. I has this partition magic software and can make you a copy so you don't have to buy it. Just read the instruction and you can fix it for both 2.5" and 3.5" HD. Please email me at joe_dao2003@yahoo.com and provide me your mailing address, I can send the copy software to you. Regards, pingping
