Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Bios does not recognize my hard drive correctly, only recognizes the family (calypso).
it tries to boot but hangs in boot mode then it says slave hdd error,and carries on booting but only using primary, think the firmware is corrupted. can anyone help me found the firmware but not sure how to get it to the hard drive and reprogram please help thanks .
If you have you primary HDD set on Cable select, and the secondary HDD is set on anything other then Cable select (with the jumper settings on the back of the HDD) then there will be an error.. Also, if you primary is set to master/slave and the same for the secondary, it will cause problems.
Another thought, if one of your drives is SATA and the other IDE, if the IDE is set to master, there may be an issue as SATA HDD's will try to post as the master drive
