SOURCE: how to format IDE hard drive?

This drive is an IDE drive. The jumpers can be set on it to make it a slave.
Once set as a slave, you can identify the drive letter given to this drive and format it either at a command prompt: C:> format [drive:] /s (to make it bootable) or no /s to just format it.- OR within Windows: right click on the drive letter and select format.

i think you must place a jumper on the back side of the hdd.
If there isn't any jumper, it is a "slave".

When you place a jumper on the correct spot, the hard drive will become the master hdd. The position of the jumper can be found on the hdd itself.

Search for "master" and put the jumper there

have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.

Some older mainboards only allow you to use SATA after you have declared your disk through the raid utility. Watch out when you do so that you select the right configuration (Raid 0)

Seagate SATA 80GB Master Drive and Seagate IDE 80GB Salve Drive


You have to make IDE drive as slave. For this put the jumper to slave in IDE drive. Possibility of CMOS battery is rare, but you can confirm it by checking your system time in BIOS. If system time is ok then there is no problem in CMOS battery and you need not to replace it.

Harddrive is not detecting bios

get a hard drive kit that will connect it via usb or get a PCI card that will allow you to install the PCI card into a PCI slot and then attach the hard drive to the PCI card ( ensuring you select the correct PCI card ) ie if its a sata drive then get a sata PCI controller card and if its IDE then get an IDE PCI controller card.
Also check for motherboard updates for your computers motherboard and also check in the bios to ensure LBA is enabled and that its detecting the hard drive.
