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 do i configure this hard drive for a 'slave' ?


Hello

Ok, you ill be able to see the jumper configuration on the hard drive itself. Here is an example on what the jumper diagram will look like on a hard drive.

Now, all you need to do is to have a look on your hard dive and see where you need to place the jumper for the slave configuration. Here is what a jumper looks like.

After you have done this, you only need to plug the hard drive into your pc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Computer fails to boot. searching for either hard


These pins are referred to as "jumpers". Each manufacturer can have their own jumper settings. Each device should have letters indicating which pins correspond to master, slave, or cable select. The best method to insure operation is to use the cable select (CS) jumper setting. Using this setting, the hardware will be automatically configured.

2 primary ides 2 secondary ides


Ok.... The Primary IDE Should be configured so that your Primary Hard Drive is Set To Master (the jumper pins must be set to the same, each drive has a guide on top or back, or it's written above or below the jumper pins on the back of the drive.

Primary = Hard Disk 0 (Your Main Hard Drive)...This one is to be set as Master and plugged to the END of the IDE Cable....Another Hard Disk / Drive can be connected as Slave (sometimes Cable Select Will Work depending on the motherboard). Remember The Jumper pins on the Drives!

Secondary= One drive must be set as Master, The other as Slave.

That Should do it.

Go into your bios setup screen, go to the boot configuration and set it up so that your boot order goes as follows:
1. Floppy Disc Drive
or........
1. Optical Drive (cd or dvd)
2. Hard Disc 0 (this will be named whatever your Hard drive model number is)
3. Hard Disc 1 (this is the second hard drive, if you want it to be bootable, it's your choice, if not, then set it up to boot off your secondary optical drive,

Make Sure that under IDE devices menu, everything is detected correctly.
Now Save Settings and Exit.

That should do it

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)

Hi i have a 10.1gb Maxtor model 31024H1 IDE hard drive and i need the jumper setting for slave


slave is NO jumpers at all


(Master) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The horizontal jumper over the J48 and J46 pins is in the Storage position.
(Master with CLJ) - The vertical jumper over the J50 pins is configuring the drive as a Master. The vertical jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Slave) - No jumper is required to configure the drive as a Slave. The jumpers over the J48, J46, J44 and J42 positions are both in the storage position.
(Slave with CLJ) - The jumper over the J44 and J42 positions is in the storage position. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
(Cable Select) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J44 and J42 pins is in the storage position.
(Cable Select with CLJ) - The jumper over the J48 position is configuring the drive for Cable Select. The jumper over the J46 pins is in the Cylinder Limitation position (CLJ).
