To install a Hard Disk Drive(HDD) into your desktop, take off the side panel of your case. Locate the SATA slots on it, they should be above the available Optical drive slots.
Put it in place, depending on your case you should either have a latch which locks it in place or you will have screws. After you've done, make sure that if you have another HDD in your PC, and you will not use this HDD for System files(C:\ drive), you will have to set the new one to Slave configuration. To do this you need to take out that jumper inside of the HDD(you can use some tweezers) and, according to what's printed on your HDD, move it up or down.
When you've done that, insert the SATA power supply cables from your Power Supply(PSU). After that use the SATA interface cables which came with your HDD and plug them into your Motherboard's SATA adapters. Locations of these vary depending on the motherboard so it's always best to refer to your Motherboard's manual to check locations.
After that start your PC and open up your BIOS/CMOS. Usually you press a key such as F2/F5/Esc on bootup. Configure your Motherboard to check for new drivers. After that save and exit and it will restart your PC. You should have installed your new HDD!
The motherboard has 2 memory slots with each slot allowing up to 1GB modules of DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. Do not mix RAM speeds.
As for hard drives, the board has the capacity of:
PATA (Parallel) - 2 x ATA100 4 Dev. Max SATA 1.5 Gb/s - 2
I would assume that the 500GB drive you have is a SATA drive. and the 80GB as PATA. If that is the case, then the two drives would be on different controllers and would work in the system. Typically, it is recommended that the SATA drives is the main hard drive holding your OS.
As always, you would need an open bay in your computer case as well as adequate power to the PWS to complete the installation.
there is no windows xp sp3.all sp3 are made by hackers which used to hack the systems easily.so please change ur operating system and also uncheck the My computer(right click)->properties->advanced->startup and recovery,uncheck the automatically restary. ur problem may be solved.
You might haven connected your hard drive correctly or you'll need to enter bios and select an option for bios to detect your hard drives and save the new configuration.... otherwise there is a serious problem with your hard drive not functioning.
At windows XP?
You might need to enter windows ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS in the CONTROL PANEL and click in COMPUTER MANAGEMENT in there click STORAGE/DISK MANAGEMENT you'll see all your connected hard drives, your new hard drive should be listed there, but may not have a letter assigned/partitioned or formatted. Do so and it will be recognized.
If you're trying to install windows XP?
It's probably because your PC has the new SATA interface hard drives,
you need to load a special SATA driver through floppy disk
during at the beginning of windows XP setup, for it to find hard drives
on your pc. You need to make this floppy disk with files that are available on your motherboard CD, in there are all the instructions you need.
