There are no settings in the BIOS for setting up master ans slave drives. The hard drives have jumpers for configuring master and Slave drives. If your hard drives are IDE/PATA hard drives and you intend to install these drives on the same IDE cable then you can set the jumper on Quantum drive as Master and the Maxtor on Slave. I suggest that you install the Quantum as master on the 1st IDE cable and the Maxtor as Master on the 2nd IDE cable for maximum data transfer rate between the two hard drived. Any other devices that are connected to these IDE cables will need to be jumpered as Slave devices.
Does the computer have two IDE channels? If so set the Maxtor HDD as master on the primary channel and the DVD drive as master on the secondary channel. Also right click on My Computer, left click on Manage and left click on Disk Management and see if the drives show up there. Also check the boot order in BIOS.
i would check to make sure that the data cable is in the right way and not turned around and they are all plugged in all the way on the drive and the motherboard also make sure that the jumpers on the drive itself is set for a single drive and not duel drives
It's important to lose your files from time to time, but you can also use a migration tool to help you, or just pull the drive from the old machine to keep spare in the new machine (and put a fresh drive in the old machine unless you are going to recycle it.) Imaging the old drive won't work if you have much encryption going on.
It's simple to observe: Know what you're doing! Read books on PC operating systems (e.g. bsd and windows) and keep very good track of what you want to preserve and what you could be doing better.
