Question about Quantum Fireball Lct20 (QML20000LD-A) 20 GB Hard Drive
I recentlt purchased a 80G hard drive which i tried to use as a slave in a Gateway desktop (the computer Os was upgraded to XP from Millenium a number of years ago w/o any issues) everytime i tried to format the 80G i received an error message 98% thru formatting stating that formatting was incomplete- after speaking with a Gateway Tech- he suggested i change the 80G to the Master and the factory installed HD (20G) as the slave. I changed the jumpers for the new configuration and installed the OS to the 80G- I can now see both drives in BIOS and in Disk Management but not in my computer. In Disk Management The 20G disk1 does not show a drive letter associated with it. When I right click on the blue bar I only get a delete partion option on the drop-down menu. I have data that i don'w want to lose on the 20- can you please advise as to how i can get the computer top recog the slave- Thanks in advance
A quick thing to try Is
remove the 80gb from ide cable and power plug and set the 20gb back as master.
boot into windows from 20gb 1 time ,
then shut down hook the 20gb as a slave and the 80 back up as master
Allow windows to find new hardware , "watch closely down by clock ". It will tell you when windows has finished and will say you might need to reboot before new hardware will work properly
After rebooting Both should show inside My computer
Good Luck I hope this helps
