Hello arrowllc

That will depend on (1) the model hard disk drive (HDD) and (2) whether or not the HDD is the only drive on that IDE channel.

If you'd still like to use the Master/Slave configuration after reading my suggestions below, please, let us know what the model number of the HDD is and we'll be happy to provide that information for you.

===

The easiest thing to do would be to place the HDD in "Cable Select" mode (look for the jumper pins labeled CS) and place the 2nd device (if there is one) on that same CS cable in CS mode as well.

The master device in a CS configuration should be on the LAST connector of the CS cable - farthest away from the motherboard IDE channel connection. The slave drive should be connected between the motherboard and the primary (master) drive.

If you choose to use CS jumpering, you will need to be sure and use a CS (high density (80 wire) ATA/IDE cable) and not one of the older type (40 wire) ATA/IDE cables.

If you have any more questions or need any more help at all, just let us know. Please, hold off on assigning ratings to the experts' contributions until your questions have been answered and you no longer need our help. (Once you rate the experts' contributions, the problem will be automatically closed and we'll no longer be able to assist you.

Thank you

    A caveat w/ respect to using CS is that your motherboard must support it. You'll know it doesn't if, when you try to plug in a CS cable, it doesn't fit.

    We really need to know the model number of the hard disk drive in order to give you that information.



    Is there a reason you are unable to give us that information? (e.g. model number not visible on the hard disk drive label?)

    Please, go HERE for a diagram of common jumper settings for Samsung HDDs.



    I haven't found a listing for this particular HDD yet. Please, try the common setting for setting a Samsung HDD to Master. If that doesn't work, please, let us know. We'll continue to search until we find a solution for you.

    Ah. It's a Hitachi. OK. That explains why I didn't find it under Samsung listings.



    I look it up under Hitachi (formerly IBM by the way).

    HERE is Hitachi's listing for your HDD.



    Please, refer to page (1) of THIS manual for the jumper configuration for your HDD.

To set a Hard Disk to master mode is quite simple. On the side of the Hard Disk that has the power hook-up and data hook-up, there is also a small section of usually about 8 little prongs, and you'll see something that looks like somebody stuck something on those prongs. It is called a jumper, and it can put the hard disk in various states such as Master, Slave, Cable Select, and more. You usually cant use a hard drive without a jumper, so don't lose it. On either the top or bottom of the HD, there should be various information about the HD. You should also see a diagram of about 8 squares, just like the 8 prongs next to the power and data connections on the HD. Find the one for Single or Master, switch the jumper to the position it tells you to, and you'll be all set!

I formatted my hd making it slave in other system: now i m placing it back on my system then it is saying Primary IDE masterNONE; Primary IDE Slave SP0822N Then comes NTLDR MISSING


> formatted my HD

This deleted 99% of the files on the disk-drive.

> Primary IDE Master: NONE
> Primary IDE Slave: SP0822N

Good. Your motherboard has detected ONE disk-drive.

Do you have just one connected disk-drive on your PRIMARY channel, or do you have two connected disk-drives (via the 2 connectors on the one ribbon-cable on the PRIMARY channel) ?

If you have two drives connected via one ribbon-cable, you MUST set the 'master/slave/cable-select' jumpers on BOTH disk-drives, to identify which of the two will be the 'master' and which will be the 'slave'.

Also, check that the 'second' disk-drive is getting electrical power.

> NTLDR MISSING

Like I said, you deleted 99% of the files, including the 'NTLDR' file.
Your computer is trying to "boot" from the 1% of the files that still exist on the disk-drive, but cannot find the now-deleted file.
Perfectly normal, given that you have formatted the disk.

IDE Problem (I Think)


Depends what kind of motherboard is. You may want to check with a different IDE ribbon cable. Make sure that the IDE controller is ENABLED within BIOS. Set the HDD as Master - see those jumpers next to the power and data connectors. Try with another (IDE) HDD and see if the controller is working. Don't asume the 1st HDD is working OK, you never know ...it may be broken now ...

Cannot get 2 IDE devices to show in bios.


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.

SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?


This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.
