Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

Hard drive and pci card

I have a
pent 4
2.4ghz
1gb
500gb maxtor hard drive
ultraATA pci 133

i posted awhile back that my maxtor 500gb hard drive wasn't reading all its capacity(only reading 30.1gb). Downloaded seagate to make sure the hard drive is fine and it is.

i asked a couple of tech guys and they told me it was my motherboard that was limiting my hard drive and they suggested i buy a pci card. So thats what i did.
pci card is installed along with the drivers. ATA cable is installed in its ide channel 1 and when i try and boot up it gives me a "disk read error" press control-alt-delete to restart...
any ideas?

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Sounds like the system is trying to boot from the drives attached to the controller. Go into your setup and make sure the system is set to boot from the proper drive.
