Hi,

Apparently you have tried most if not all of the basic install procedures.

If and when you connected it as a secondary or slave to a working/booting PC, was it auto detected at the CMOS/BIOS stage? If yes, then perhaps it is a partitioning/formatiing issue, if not then chances are that it is a hardware problem and the drive is dead.

Alternately, you can try using an external SATA/IDE Interface to USB such as a VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter or any comparable product. This would provide the SATA/IDE connections to your new hard drive as well as a USB cord to your PC's USB port.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I wish to us a WD1600 (caviar) hard drive fopr extra storage in my pc the drive came from my old PC there are eight pins to choose from. Where do I place the jumper?


Well, if this hard drive is SATA and looks like this:

Then you don't need to worry about the jumpers at all, the hard drive is ready for use in your PC.


However, if it's IDE, which looks like this:

You will need to move the pins to the "Slave" setting, and on Western Digital drives it is one set of vertical pins going away from the 4 pin power input, the above picture is set for Slave mode, and can be used as a reference.

There should be jumpers on the back of both hard drives. You need to set the primary hard drive jumper to MASTER and the secondary hard drive jumper to SLAVE. Here is a picture of the jumper settings.

WD drive won't work as master when Seagate 80GB drive connected as slave.


Hi,

The jumpers on the Seagate must be set to slave.

otherwise they are conflicting for the Active partion and bootloader.
