if you physically remove this sata ide card restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate the found new hardware wizard
If I am not completely mistaken you have to reinstall the OS on the SATA drive on IDE. That is because the first installation was configured for connection on a SATA /PCI then now on the SATA/IDE port converter.
Unplugging the CDROM didn't cause this issue but installing the western digital on that cable did cause your drive numbers to change in BIOS. You need to disconnect the external hard drive from the SATA cable but leave the power connected,then boot windows. Once booted reconnect the SATA cable. Check and see if it shows up in your disk management utility.
To do this, right click on computer, then left click manage. When the management console opens, click Disk Management on the left side and scroll down through your drives. Let me know if it shows up and what it says about the partition on the right, I'll keep my eyes open for your reply.
I have successfully connected a older. 20 GB drive to a computer with a 2. sata connection on the mother board.
Buy trial and error I found that connecting a power cable to the converter and the hard drive was the only way to get the Bios To recognize the drive. Done sucessfuly with a 40GB drive as well, Set drive to master.
Your hard drive may be intermittenly faulty, any abnormal sounds from a hard drive is not good. I would connect your hard drive to an USB adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port and do a Disk cleanup and defrag, if possible run disk diagnostic program on the hard drive. If the hard drive proved OK then you may have a faulty IDE controller or faulty IDE cable, check the BIOS battery voltage, may need a new one.
Do you have any USB disk devices plugged in to your system? USB hard drive or flash stick or other SD cards? Remove them and try rebooting again. These can sometimes take precedence over your HDD and your system will not boot.
