There are Jumpers on the drive Master & Slave settings usually printed on the drive. There is another less common way this is via a Cable..called cable select.

NEED JUMPER SETTINGS FOR MASTER HARD DRIVE


Set The Jumper Setting On Your Hard Disk Drive

The hard disk drive will be detected as 32 GB if the jumper is set to the 32 GB clip pin setting. The common jumper settings for Samsung hard disk drives are listed below. Please check the label on your hard disk drive for the correct jumper setting.

Important: Use the alternate jumper setting listed below under General Pin Setting. After changing the jumper, partition and format your hard disk drive.

Configuring your Hard Disk Drive (Master, Slave, or Cable Select) - Setting the Jumper

If this is the only HDD in your computer, set the pin setting to Master.
If this is the second HDD in your computer, set the pin setting to Slave.
If this is the second HDD in your computer, and the first drive is set to Cable Select, set the pin setting to Cable Select.
If you are replacing the HDD in your computer, set the jumper setting to match that of the drive you are replacing.

Cable Select:

This setting is the default setting for PATA/IDE hard disk drives. With the Cable Select jumper setting, the BIOS determines whether a hard disk drive is Set as Master or Set as Slave by it's position on the UDMA cable.
If the hard disk drive jumper is set to Cable Select and is connected to the black connector on the end of the UDMA cable, it is recognized as Set as Master for that PATA controller.
If the hard disk drive jumper is set to Cable Select and is connected to the grey connector on the middle of the UDMA cable, it is recognized as Set as Slave for that PATA controller.

Note: When using Cable Select, your system must meet the following conditions:
Your systems host controller must support Cable Select.
Your hard drives must support Cable Select.
Your cable must support Cable Select.

Set as Master:

Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable with a hard disk drive Set as Slave, jumper one hard disk drive to Set as Master, and the other to Set as Slave.
Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable and the Cable Select setting is not recognized.

Set as Slave:

Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable with a hard disk drive Set as Master, jumper one hard disk drive to Set as Master, and the other to Set as Slave.
Use this setting if you are installing an additional hard disk drive to a single UDMA cable and the Cable Select setting is not recognized.

32 GB Clip Pin Setting:

Use this on computers manufactured before November 1998 when either you start up your computer and see the message, "Hard disk drive controller failure", or your system stops responding during the boot process after installing a new drive. This occurs when the hard disk drive is too large for the BIOS to support.

If after performing the troubleshooting procedure listed above, the full capacity of your hard disk drive is not recognized, click here for information about obtaining a system BIOS update. If you are unable to update your BIOS, another option would be to create a second partition with the remaining unallocated disk space.

How change prymari device?


You can either look into this online manual or follow the instructions given below.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/en/om/Y69490LRs.pdf

In the case of loading a particular Operating System(OS) from a specific Hard Disk, you can change the boot priority from BIOS (Hope you know to get into BIOS) as shown in the picture
1_7_2012_2_50_00_pm.png

Or if you want to change the physical configuration of your Hard Disks to Master and Slave, then follow these steps.
  1. Open up the side panel of your PC Case.
  2. Disconnect all the wires from both Hard disks.
  3. Look over the labelled top part of each hard disk to know the settings of JUMPER PIN so as to set it as primary(master) or secondary(slave). Please note that if you are using IDE hard disk, this may be enough. But in the case of SATA, inspite of this, you may also require to install RAID Driver after connecting them back into the computer. These drivers can be downloaded from http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection (You may require to set up your product manually and download Serial ATA drivers)
  4. (Connect them back, Screw up- if you haven't done it already). Now you may be able to use the required hard disks as primary(master) and secondary(slave).
You can also watch two videos of changing jumper of the hard disk. But be careful while replacing jumper. Any incorrect configuration or jumper setting or damage of pin may cause in device failure or result in damage of your hard disks.If you have any further doubts, feel free to ask me...

How to make master and slave


"Now for a refresher course on hard drive connections. When connectingmore than one hard drive to a computer on the same IDE controller, yougenerally have to assign one as the primary (master) and one as thesecondary (slave). You do this by changing the jumpers on the harddrive next to the power connector. Normally, the drive will have adiagram to let you know which jumper should be set for a master driveand which to set for a slave drive. You'll notice in the picture belowthe jumpers are circled on the end of the drive and the top of thedrive shows the diagram to follow."

Need master slave configuration


Hello,

You should have a jumper configuration written somewhere on the front (up) side of the hard Disk ... Look there, or look just around the Pins... Look for M, S, CS (Master, Slave, Cable Select)
