Question about Hard Drives
I know when I install to my existing hard drive my second hard drive must be the slave, but if I want to install to my second eide connector on my mobo do I use cable sellect or is it still slave drive,this will not be the boot up drive just more space thanks newby.
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.
