You must properly jumper your hard drives and if you are using cd or dvd drives in conjunction with other drives, they too must be properly jumpered. You will also need to connect them to the proper connector as IDE cables usually have two drive connectors and one board connector.

BIOS will not let me change boot sequence of hard drives. It lists both of them (one SATA and one IDE). Trying to recover info off IDE, primary OS is on SATA. How do I get BIOS to let me change sequence?


check the the jumper pins on the back of the HHD, SATA should be set to master & IDE to slave read the top of the HHD first coz some HHD's have master without slave presant.
boot up as normal then go into "computer" & get the data off the IDE drive.

How do i instal as a second player on an intel board


you remove the first dvd or cd rom. in the back where you plug in the cables, search for a diagram of master, slave and cable select pin sets. on both of these roms, there will be one. set one to master and the other to slave. make sure the master is connected to the ide cable plug closest to the motherboard. the slave will be the last one on the IDE cable.

Slave drive


If you are referring to creating a slave HDD, then it is not necessary - as this model utilizes SATA hard drives, there is no master / slave concept; it is in the order in which you connect the drives to the connectors on the motherboard. If your reference is to the Optical drives with IDE, then connect the slave drive to the middle connector in the IDE (flat ribbon) cable & ensure the jumpers on both the drives are set to Cable select (CS) - this would be at the rear end of the drive. Connect the IDE cable to the motherboard & the BIOS will automatically assign the drive connected to the end as master & the middle as slave.

Cloned hard drive "C" (WD 40GB) to A Deskstar 8oGB using external enclosure. When I remove the old drive and install new drive and boot up I get Msg drive 0 not found retry or enter setup. If I enter setup...


there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk
1. IDE
2. SATA

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks

IDE Primary Master/Slave NONE


Hook the two together on the one working IDE connector. Put your hard drive as the first device on the ribbon cable and make it the master using the jumper at the back. Hook the DVD to the second and set it's jumper to slave. Install your OS then try to figure what's up.

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!

well first about the cd/dvd. it debends on the connector, if the connector is wide with 40 pins this means its a IDE. so you would connect it with a IDE cable to a ide connector on the motherboard, and by the way there can be two devices on a IDE cable, the other has to be set to master and the other to slave.

6274cd0.jpg
See the small 6 pins next to the cable, there you should also see a small plastic jumper with a metal inside, you need to change this jumper so its either on slave or master, only one slave or master can be present so check the other device also.

The cd / dvd may also be a smaller SATA drive and in that case you simply need to plugit into a small exactly same type of connector on the motherboard.


about the front panel

the connector should be like this

simply attach them to the correct slots

Heres a image, note that his is not your motherboard and they might be difrent.

Motherboard is not seeing the HD


generally its not a good idea to run both ide and sata drive at the same time.

if you are lucky in your bios it will have a emulate sata as pata/ide drives.

turn this on and be sure to select the ide drive with the OS on it as the master drive so it boots first.

also if you are doing this you will also need to change the jumpers on the sata drive as well to make it a slave and not a master otherwise you will have two master drives and it won't boot.

good luck
