I want to install quantum 20 GB lct as my second drive and as a slave. I have a six pin connector at the back. How do i set the jumper so as to make it a slave drive thakx jason

Take a VERY close look for some "engraving" near the pins.
Look for 'MA(ster)' and 'SL(ave)' and 'C(able)S(elect)' lettering.

Or, some disk-drives have a diagram on the label on the top of the disk-drive, instead of the engraving. Follow the jumpering-instructions on that label.

once you have installed them physically into your comptuer like that, start it up.

Format Quantum Fireball

Now you still have windows xp, and you have a clean 2nd hard drive.

You do not need to install windows xp on the 2nd drive

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave

Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.

Quantum fireball lct 20

Is it the only drive installed? If so, you may have to reinstall windows from the genuine disk. Check cable to motherboard too and come back to me for more if this fails

Quantum fireball 40 not recognised as master

goto the quantum site and verify the jumper setting on the drive first

if correct then.. check your sata cable is good...

check the bios to boot options so the quantum is set to boot...

under boot options .. hard drives.. sort the drive to be the first to boot
