Master is 7-8 (the 2 furthest from the power connector)
Slave is no jumpers selected

Here is a manual for your model for reference:

How to add 2nd hdd to hp 513n


As I recall busy_bee96 the harddrive technology used is IDE. (Also known as PATA)

Let's see if there is information on HP Support;

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07813&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=90384

Yes, if we scroll down to the heading - IDE UDMA Modes, we see ATA 66/100 listed.
IDE (PATA) harddrives are used.

The HP pavilion 513n Desktop PC came with an IDE 60GB harddrive.
I don't know what size Slave drive you are going to install, but there may be a size limitation.

On the back of an IDE harddrive are jumper pins. For the original harddrive these may need to be set to Master.
To perform this function the jumper is placed on the two pins for the Master setting.

These are examples of a Jumper,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jumperblock-shunts.jpg

Small plastic blocks that are hollow inside. There is a rolled spring clip inside the hollow block, that goes over two pins. Connects the two pins together.

General example of the back of an IDE harddrive, showing the Jumper Pins,
I'm going to use Western Digital's IDE harddrive jumper pin settings,

http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/463/session/L3RpbWUvMTMxODI2NDI0OC9zaWQvSjEzTHVkR2s%3D

Where it states Dual Master is the setting for the Master harddrive.
Where it states Dual Slave is the setting for the Slave harddrive.

Look at the label on your harddrive, and see if it shows the settings for Master.
If not write down the Model Number, and search it online.
OR, post the Model Number in a Comment, and I'll look it up for you.

It may be where there is NO jumper used on the Master harddrive.

Look up the information for the 2nd (Slave drive) harddrive, if it is not stated on the label.

You need to know where the jumper pin settings should be, when using two harddrives.

Past this point you need to look at the flat ribbon cable.
There are IDE ribbon cables that have 40 wires, and 80 wires.
Both styles have 40 contact pins.
(39 actually. 1 is not used)

With the 40 wire IDE cable the Master harddrive is plugged into the MIDDLE connector, on the cable.
The Slave drive is plugged into the END connector.

With the 80 wires IDE cable, it is reversed.
Master harddrive goes to the END connector, Slave drive goes to the MIDDLE connector.

Dear soviet guy
these are the jumper settting for both the drives

If you try to enter in safe mode or at last known config and the laptop reboots or freezes then you need to reinstall the operating system if you want to use that hard drive on hp pavilion a1000n. The laptops have different chipset and XP requires to be the same or similar chipset to boot properly.

Diamond max 20 hard drive won't install - jumper problems - want as slave, my old one as master


on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.

Add slave hard drive


I am assuming IDE not SATA ? did you set the jumpers on the drives themselves? the seagate 80 to master the 20 to slave. The jumpers are on the front of the drives next to the connectors. Next connect to the motherboad behind the master drive or seperately on a 2nd IDE connector. If you are connecting both with one cable make sure the master is added to connector at the end of the cable.
